This is a BIG BUNDLE that has been revised from my original packet which contained quizzes, final test and independent reading questions as well as a final project. It now includes four weekly handouts that divide the reading into four sections. Each of these handouts has some of the following: inquiry based research, nonfiction articles, literary elements, questions for socratic discussion and much more. Also are added two additional assignments that include an interview with someone over 60 and a teacher tribute letter. Well worth it and great for COMMON CORE!!!
