What Teachers Are Saying:
"As always, I love your resources! As a VA teacher, it's hard to find resources that are completely aligned to our SOLs and this was perfect. My principal came to observe me during my lesson using these in small group and he loved how the poems and questions were rigorous and challenged the students to really dig deep." - Chandanette
"I was so happy to find this resource and the rigor in questioning that it provides. My students were engaged while reading the passages/poems and we were able to discuss each answer in our small groups." - Darla
