    In regard to getting it all in the four weeks thematic unit deadline, mission
    impossible. But what I found is that what I really want to do with the unit
    is make the connection between the theme and the student. The literature
    helps to builds the connection. I the students read novel in a literature
    circle and then I supplement that reading with excerpts or short stories that
    help to develop the theme and connections. The excerpts help to extend the
    reading base for students and allow me to model strategies. I do not know if
    this helps or hurts.
