The bundle is organized into folders to help you locate resources easily. While not a scripted unit plan with day-to-day lesson plans, there are plenty of resources to fill a month's worth of activities. The primary font used on the handouts is called Drift Type, and can be downloaded free online.
Resources were used in an 11th grade ELA class, but can be adapted for AP/Honors or lower-level students.
