Double Dog Combos
Series of 8 titles
We’ve paired our Best-Selling Dog Heroes narrative nonfiction titles with our NEW Hound Town Chronicles fiction books!
The Common Core (9th anchor reading standard for each grade) recommends that students be exposed to topically related texts, with content that can be compared and contrasted, to develop analytic and general thinking skills. To help educators in this regard, a teaching guide for the pairings is available for each product.
Each Teacher’s Guide offers:
• Ways to help students compare and contrast elements of fiction versus historical nonfiction
• Ideas for writing about the similarities and differences between the topically related stories in Hound Town Chronicles and the nonfiction anecdotes in Dog Heroes
Contains the following 8 Dog Heroes titles: Comfort Dogs, Ground Zero Dogs, Guide Dogs, Lifeguard Dogs, Military Dogs, Police Dogs, Seizure-Alert Dogs, and Shelter Dogs; and these 8 Hound Town Chronicles titles: My Indy: A Guide Dog Story, Newfie to the Rescue! A Lifeguard Dog Story, Noah and Link: A Guide Dog Story, Sherlock: A Police Dog Story, Stray to Star! A Shelter Dog Story, Sunny on Alert! A Seizure-Alert Dog Story, Three-Legged Hero: A Military Dog Story, and Trapped! A Search-and-Rescue Dog Story.
