Teacher Feedback

  1. “Another great unit from this seller!  Lots of options and everything is very current, relevant, and at the students’ level. I especially like that it isn’t just a bunch of worksheets with simple questions, there are activities, readings, links, projects, and differentiated options. Sooooo much is included I will have lots of choices.  The guided options for the inquiry will be great for helping my students stay on track and providing structure for my struggling kiddos and the openness will let others go beyond. Thank you so much for sharing this unit! “
