    I am being observed while using this unit this week. I have a couple questions that maybe you could help me with.
    1. For day 2, what are the essential questions?
    2. What is the Unit Essential question?

    • Deedee October 30 at 3:15 pm

      For Day 2: How does noticing the way characters act and think help us to understand the story better?

      How can talking about important parts of the story help us understand the books we read?

      I hope that helps! Good luck
