This unit was created for my 7th grade students to introduce fictional stories that they can relate to. This unit provides the lesson sequence as to what stories students will read using the 'Language of Literature' books. Students have different stories they will read independently, in small groups, whole class, or listen to and then complete the homework assignments or exit slips. I have created and attached some of the exit slips that you can use which are common core related. Other assessments were given to me from my school which is not electronic. This can be a great unit to get the year started and for students to understand the elements of reading!
