    What other teachers are saying about this literature unit:

    ♥ This will be my second time teaching this novel and I'm excited to have an arsenal of supplies ready to go!

    ♥ I taught Unwind last year to a selected group of students and they loved it so much, I had to buy a class set for all my students this year. This guide really helps break it down on different levels from struggling readers to exemplary readers. It also helps me organize what I want to cover this unit and has every resource I could think to need. I cannot wait to start teaching this in a few weeks! Thank you so much for taking the time to create this and put it all together!

    ♥ Visually appealing, adaptable to all learning levels and very thorough unit overall.

    ♥ I wanted to thank you for making my life easier teaching this novel, and I really love the common grammar tie in.

    ♥ Very comprehensive. Unit includes A LOT for the $. Most of the items are standard (fig lang & vocab), but some of the activities are more analytical and/or creative.
