Teacher Feedback 

  1. I do a debate unit with my Gr. 9s for persuasive writing (leading to an essay).  The articles were easy to understand and use for our in-class debates and writing points. This was a great prelude to doing further research.”
  2. “Great material to reinforce learning. Interactive and engaging.”
  3. “I purchased several of these nonfiction sets to use in my ELA classroom.  Our current text book is very week on nonfiction.  These were a great supplement to use with my 6th graders.  They find the topics interesting and I love that they are easy to use and prep for.”
