TEACHERS LIKE YOU SAID…
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Christopher A. says, “I love using this resource each year when we read The Outsiders. My students already love the book so much, I didn’t want them to dread the work that went along with the novel study. This is a great resource that is engaging and not overwhelming for students. I like that I can use it to hit multiple standards while reading one novel. This is great for both formative and summative assessment. I let my students work together through most of the activities and we use the discussion questions as a class discussion. I enjoy watching my students get into deep conversations over this resource as we read. I highly recommend using this as your novel study.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Jaime V. says, “I used the interactive reading bookmarks with my students. By folding them, they made nice bookmarks, so the kids weren’t shoving them in random folders. I really liked the section where kids had to find meaningful quotes and write an explanation. This was our favorite part of discussion.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Anna B. says, “I LOVED using this with my class. We barely touched on probability on day one, did this on day two, and really engaged the students! My students were much more successful on this year’s probability test than previous years, and I think this resource has a lot to do with that!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Amy H. says, “This is a fantastic resource! There is so much here to choose from, which will help me meet the needs of all learners. This has saved me hours and I will definitely use it again and again with this classic YA novel.
