WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:
♥ I cannot say enough about what an amazing resource this is!!! This is close reading as its finest!! Every single activity is well-thought out and scaffolds perfectly. I followed the instructions that came with it and I was amazed at the comprehension that was flowing through my students by the time we got to the summary phase. Thank you times a million!
♥ This has been one of the best purchases I've ever made on TPT. There is so much for the students to do. I originally used the guided notes sheet as we learned about the Gettysburg Address, but a few weeks ago we did a throw back Thursday to review and the students did the second activity which was a writing piece. I will be using this for years to come :)
♥ I liked that this resource broke the speech down into sections, so that the students could really focus on the main idea. Great resource!
♥ This is great!! Has great questions and answer keys to make this ready to go with no prep!
