I used this product with the following 7-9th grade texts, but this editable version needs no changes to be used with any texts. Because of this, it's a product available for 6th-12th grade use!

  • The Compound by S.A. Bodeen
  • Hidden Figures (young readers' edition) by Margot Lee Shetterly
  • The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
  • I Am Malala (young readers' edition) by Malala Yousafzai
  • Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis Majors
  • Prisoner B-3087 by Alan Gratz (check out other great Alan Gratz novels as well!)

The purpose/overview, essential questions, and learning goals are included. Because this product is fully E D I T A B L E, it includes a PDF, Pages, and Word copy for your use. If you'd prefer the uneditable version, you can find that here.

The fonts included in this product are the following (also available in my store):

  • KC Bronte
  • KC Salinger
  • KC Fitzgerald
