What are teachers saying about "Oliver Twist?"
"This helped my 9th grade Reading intervention class so much!... This resource was accessible to them. They learned a lot but it wasn't intimidating to them, which is huge! I especially loved the pre-reading terms before each section. It provided the necessary context before we read... I paired those terms with images from the internet to add a layer of visual support too. I will absolutely buy from this seller again." - Kelly H.
" I am so thrilled with this product! I cannot wait to start using it next week!"
