Note: This unit follows a similar structure to my other book-based units. This allows students time to develop and consolidate their skills, while applying them to a variety of texts. It also means planning for you as a teacher is minimised, as you may already be familiar with the structure of some activities. If you have not completed any of my units before - don't worry! Any of them can be used without relying on knowledge of previous units.
