HOW TO USE THE DOCTOR DESOTO UNIT:
Students analyze the text through outlining the plot events, working with vocabulary, making inferences using text examples, and by applying their learning in their own writing piece. You can get a great feel for the unit using the preview supplied. I suggest using it with mentor text lessons, book clubs, or paired reading.
