The vocabulary tasks look great, but most exciting are the application activities. I have every intent to turn the story board activity into a claymation activity. yay!

I just went through it and I really like it. It will really come in handy for my 8th graders. The only drawback is that it would be nice if the printouts were on their own pages so I could pick and choose what to make copies of, instead of having to copy/paste to create single pieces of it because so many of them are split.

On  February 29, 2012Comprehension Connection (TpT Seller) said:
Appreciate that there is a focus on comprehension skills and strategies with an explanation for students. Many authors are failing to include this piece, and as a reading specialist, it's vital that students not just respond to comprehension questions, but rather learn skills needed to think as readers. Good job! I purchased several of your units, and appreciate the consistent quality.
