What educators are saying

This was so helpful since it was my first time teaching this novel. I didn't have to reinvent the wheel!
The quizzes were wonderful and I used them as a ticket in the door. It was a great way to make sure my students read and it helped to hold them accountable. Thank you.


Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry gives a powerful look into the racism that an African-American family faced while growing up in the south in the 1930s.
