Lucerito S. said: Worth the money! This is my first year teaching juniors and I really did not know where to start since we currently do not have a curriculum map for English III. Anyways, this Secondary Solutions The Scarlet Letter unit saved my life. The sample agenda, list of summaries, reading guides, list of definitions, are absolutely put together to make this unit flow. The best part to me were the "Standards Focus" guides because this unit allowed me to integrate the standards effectively into the reading of the novel. Let me not forget to mention that there are answer keys which help with grading. Truly a great source! I will be looking to see if they have other units listed.
