How is the Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman unit organized?
All of my book companion units are organized in a before, during, and after reading format. I try to include ways to use the books as a mentor text for both comprehension and writing. In this unit, the written component is a procedural text. Amazing Grace is truly a must use book in grades 3-5 because of the themes of perseverance, confidence, and inclusivity.

It is thorough and the fact that it covers both reading and writing objectives is a huge benefit!”
