The book, A Long Walk to Water, by Linda Sue Park, is one of the best books I’ve ever taught! I teach this book to my seventh grade students and each year it gets better. You can check out my complete unit HERE!
I roughly follow the NYS Module for the book, but I have so many wonderful experiences to share. Here is a BUNDLE of PRINTABLES for the unit.
