This unit is not like what most of us experienced in our English classes as teens. It’s not an all-class novel unit, nor a canonical text unit, nor a classic interpretation unit.

Part of the Units of Study in Teaching Reading, Middle School Grades, this unit strikes a delicate balance between encouraging readers to hold on to the magic of reading, allowing them to slip longingly into the pages of a compelling story, and presenting readers with opportunities to engage in meta-analysis, fostering an appreciation of the craft of the text as well as the story.
