To prevent overlapping curriculum—Use Units 1-3 from Reading textbook (Great Expectations from Scott Foresman) first semester and Units 4-6 second semester.

One novel will be read 1st semester and one 2nd semester (teachers will collaborate to decide which novels will be read 1st and 2nd semester)
