Notes

  • Our "Beyond the Covers" full units each offer a guided in-depth look at a featured book. These lessons include vocabulary and reading comprehension, and then go beyond- encouraging students to put themselves in the plot - and to see how the stories apply to their own lives. These units are great for guided or independent reading.
