Review:

I d like to thank you for your much needed product. I am a secondary teacher trapped in a 6TH and 7TH grade classroom. My students don't respond well to the cutesy literature guides that look too elementary. I used your Freak the Mighty lit guide with my 6th graders, and we all loved it! The note taking guide worked wonders, and they finally started to get figurative language! Big strides were made by all! I can't wait to get some more guides for next year's novels. Thank you again! --Jamie W., submitted via website at 4secondarysolutions.com

FANTASTIC! I am reading Freak the Mighty with my class because of bullying issues; I really appreciate that you included several activities geared toward this topic. --TeachersPayTeachers.com

I found this literature guide to be very user friendly and saved me a great deal of time not having to create the materials myself. Highly recommended if you are interested in reading the book in your class. --TeachersPayTeachers.com
