What other teachers are saying about this literature unit:

Susan M. said:
Great materials with an up to date visual appeal. I have been working with this play for 10 years, and I am excited to have some materials to freshen up the unit. Thank for putting this all together!

Mia Janelle U. said:
As always, this is a fantastically thorough resource. I've used your unit packages for two others units: Night and Unwind. I cannot express how much these make my life easier. Instead of getting bogged down in preparation, which I tend to do when I'm teaching a certain course for the first time, I can stay excited and that's very obvious to my students. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Better Together said:
Love this! It's visually interesting and very well done. I am budgeting for other content from this author. This is TOP-notch.
