How I Use This Product: 

-I usually use this in our To Kill a Mockingbird unit. I give this to the students at the beginning of the unit and have them work on it as they read. I collect it at the end for a grade. I also might randomly collect it at least once during the unit to make sure they are filling it out. I tell them it helps them understand and analyze the text and that it can also help them gather evidence for their literary analysis essay at the end of the unit.
