I am a middle school teacher in the state of NJ.  I am certified to teach ELA to all grades. I have a specialty certification in both Middle School and High School English. I have successfully taught this story for over 10 years. 
Students will be given extension activities.  These activities include a comprehension review game, a movie version of the text, and background information on the author. 
Teacher will interact and ask questions throughout the reading. Feedback will be given via email after the class.
