    Your learners will enjoy the rigor and creativity of our engaging activities built from best teaching practices. We want to make your lesson planning journey easy, so you can focus on your expertise. This novel study includes a curriculum map pacing guide that offers our day-by-day suggestion for how to plan out your weeks of lessons. Our pedagogy section explains the instructive idea behind the activity, gives ideas for implementation, and aligns it to the standards. We've filmed some training videos on (1) how to assemble a Novel Analysis Packet that is unique to the academic needs of your learners and (2) how to effectively use our Quickwrite writing prompts.

    ♥ LOVE your Novel units! Makes my life so much easier and is an excellent resource for this book study. I used your Wonder unit last year. You're my go-to for novel resources. Thanks again!

    ♥ I LOVE your products! Thanks so much for providing quality, fun products!

    ♥ I love ALL of the units I've purchased from you. I bought this one before learning that I was moving to 7th grade. I'll be teaching 3 new novels next year. I'll be watching out for a Boy in Striped Pajamas unit ;-) Wonderful resource, as always!

    ♥ An amazing timesaving piece. I LOVE all of your units. They have so many pieces to pick and choose from-there is never enough time to do them all!!

    ♥ I used SO many pieces of this in my unit to challenge my students. Loved the Figurative Language, the settings, the symbolism, the quick writes! It all was so easy to use in separate files and organized so I wasn't hunting through a 30 page document like most units. Thank you so much!

    ♥ As a math teacher teaching a reading intervention class, this is exactly what I needed! Thanks!
