I try to make my resources as engaging as possible while still practicing the essential standards for students in the classroom. I test my materials out on my own students before I post them online. We all know teenagers make a pretty tough audience; these materials have been classroom-tested and approved. I hope your students enjoy them as much as mine.

This is a ZIPPED folder with three PDF files inside. Please follow the directions after purchasing for step-by-step details on how to unzip the folder. Also, please allow the file to download completely before opening. If you get an error message, re-downloading it and waiting before opening almost always solves the problem.
