As a special education teacher, I have often been asked to create materials for use in many different classrooms. To do this, takes time, energy, and creativity. I think it is so important to try to use students’ strongest learning ability. I always give my students the option of interactive notes, traditional notes, guided notes, or a copy of my notes. While this can seem overwhelming, it truly is not difficult to differentiate for many levels of learners in the classroom.

This novel unit includes comprehension questions and vocabulary with aligned activities to the Common Core State Standards such as the use of textual evidence, word choice, figurative language, comparison activities from informational reading as well as multimedia activities. A mid book test is also included along with a final assessment.
