WHAT OTHER TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS LITERATURE RESOURCE

♥ Great rigor! I loved the quick writes and all the other concepts.

♥ I've used this with both my 7th and 8th graders. They have absolutely loved it! Some of my reluctant readers even commented on how they can pass the quizzes. A fantastic unit that I have recommended to other teachers at my school.

♥ I am currently using this with my 8th grade students and it has been a lifesaver! I love the nonfiction documents and the vocabulary activity best. The vocabulary activity requires students to use context clues which is fantastic.

♥ This is great! I like that each activity is separate because I could rearrange them in the order the worked best for me. The activities are really fun, and I love the fact that some grammar is included! SUPER! :D

♥ I was so excited to see this because I loved, loved, loved using your unit for The Giver. The resources are of the same high quality, that are ready to use in the classroom the next day.

♥ My students loved the vocabulary and slang terms activity! They had so much fun! Thanks!
