As a person who lives with a hearing loss, I highly recommend this novel to help students and adults alike understand the challenges that a person with hearing loss deals with daily and how to make communication easier and less frustrating for all involved. I have never personally read a book that is truer in how life with a hearing loss is portrayed. When presented in this graphic novel style it makes for an enjoyable and enlightening read for everyone!

This comprehensive unit also includes Google Drive™ format files, additional writing activities, teacher plans, and CCSS alignment that you cannot find in the individual components. This complete novel study is by far your best value!

This unit is designed to be used with some student/instructor interaction, but can easily be used as an independent study for the student. It is written for the 4-6th grade reading level.

This unit works great in a one-on-one setting for homeschooling or for a teacher to use as a resource in the classroom for a small group or entire class. This no-prep unit is designed so that you can start teaching immediately with little to no preparation on your part. Great time saver!
