    Comprehensive? You bet. This was a very popular bundle of mine when I taught. I never grew tired of teaching it or introducing to my students the basic plot of Tom Sawyer.

    HOW DO I USE THIS PRODUCT IN MY CLASSROOM? First, read the script aloud with your class and either use all the questions in the study guide or a few. Then study set design through designing for the play. These units will last about three weeks for you.
