This unit is compiled and ready to use. It can be utilized all together or pieces at a time. Text complexity is similar to passages seen on state and AP exams. Time frame will vary depending on students, class duration, and how much of the unit is used at a time. The resources will be valuable to use throughout the year, not just with these specific passages and questions.

Check out other items in my store, and let me know if you need something that I haven't put up yet.
