    What other teachers are saying about this literature unit:

    ♥ This is exactly what I was looking for to help me move through this novel with my class! I am super picky about layouts, graphics, wordings, and design. This is perfect!

    ♥ I am using this unit with my 4th grade advanced reading rotation group and LOVE it! The variety of activities is very appealing to both my students and self. I feel it is very aligned with common core standards and expectations and has opened many doors to explore and research different aspects of the book. I am using it with the professional narration available on audible and I have a very engaged group of students who can't wait to read more! The authors of this unit have created a love for learning for students through their work - I can't thank you enough!

    ♥ Really helpful, lots of things to choose from! Thank you!

    ♥ I have used this resource for two years! I especially love the bias activity, it really makes students think!

    ♥ Great unit plan. Very thorough!

    ♥ Perfect for my junior high resource class.
