For our first volume, Using Informational Text to Teach To Kill a Mockingbird, there was so much great stuff, we couldn’t fit it all into the book! It was tough to pick two chapters to leave out of the print version, but we had to cut the volume in size or face an unreasonable sales price.
The good news is we can share these materials with you online. You can use them as you see fit:
Unit 8: What is the meaning of rabies in Mockingbird? (PDF)
R. A. Craig: Common Diseases of Farm Animals

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and reactions. Let us know what works for you (and what doesn’t). Let us know your favorite sections and questions. And let us know of any ideas you have for how these units can be updated or expanded.
