Great for my struggling readers and I really like the fact that all the question are not multiple choice!!!

Thank You from france !

I loved this now my students can learn about Isabella Baumfree and learn that not every family back then was all together that some were sold and killed. Thanks

Great and relevant passages for students. I love the questions however, adding "Use examples and details to support your response" at the end of the short response questions could be an added asset to students thought process.
