This is a unit that covers all 10 reading literature standards. It has 17 days of mini-lessons to support book clubs. Group your students into 4-6 "clubs" and teach them to read literature like adults! There are mini-lessons for each day with differentiated support (remediation and extensions), graphic organizers for interactive journals, and guides for group discussions. Your students will love this authentic study of literature AND it is all prepared for you.
