- Caitlin & Jessica
**Please note: This is NOT a complete, year-long curriculum, but both Jessica and I (Caitlin) used all of these resources this year in our middle school ELA classrooms! Almost every month is completely covered except for August, March and April (we added our Short Story Unit to cover both March and April in between the Women's History Month Research Project and the Poetry Project). Our Short Story Unit is not included in this bundle. For August, we spent the first few weeks reviewing writing skills, as well as covering our Summer Reading Assignments! Other than that, essentially your entire year is covered with this reading and writing bundle!**
