Students will love this interactive novel companion for The Watsons Go to Birmingham - 1963. They will investigate historical events and ideas associated with the novel in a fun and engaging way using a hyperdoc which is a document that contains active links to outside videos and other forms of media. You'll be able to assess their learning through the interactive companion guide where students answer standards-based questions about the novel.

Let's face it. Most students don't have the schema to fully relate to historical references, but this resource helps bridge the gap in an exciting, interactive way. Students visit links to outside videos, websites, terms and definitions, and other forms of media to help them make connections for better comprehension.
