This unit has been designed to work with WWII non-fiction texts, student interest, and independent reading. In the unit there are pieces of close reading to help students improve their comprehension, there are also weekly group meeting pages, expectations, and rubrics for weekly presentations.
The preview file is the book choice sheet used to put students into groups based on their interest. The books in the unit can be changed, however if you plan to use them, I purchased the majority of them from Scholastic Books for a minimal price.
