Using the unit study is easy for you. Just print the notebooking pages that you need for each student. And print one copy of the schedule and activity instructions for yourself. Give each student a three-ring binder, and they can create a notebook as they go through the activities in the study to demonstrate what they've learned. Use my literature unit studies all year long and organize each study in one large binder.
