  2. “As with all resources from this creator/teacher, this is fantastic. It is well laid out, lots of videos and readings and examples to engage the kids. 2peasandadog saves my life every time. I love everything that she creates. This is a very timely and needed topic to talk about in class. Thank you.”
  3. “I am planning my first few weeks/lessons for September, and this is one of those lessons I will be using right from the starting block.  Too few students understand the importance of not using someone else's words, or the importance of citing.  Thank you so much for this comprehensive resource.  I love it!”
  4. “I think this is a great unit to start the school year. It's the topic that is on everyone's mind so it sparks conversation and debate. It also sets up a lot of the do and don't expectations for language curriculum.”
