Reflection: Lesson Planning Choice Novel Unit: Mapping How a Story Unfolds - Section 1: What is a plot diagram?


I would like to say a little more about Reader's Handbook as resource. I find myself coming back to this book time and time again each school year. It includes useful guides and skill building activities for many literary genres and for teaching test-taking strategies. I appreciate having copies of the teacher guide and student application books in addition to a class set of the student books. Give it look and I think you'll agree.
