Love That Dog is a novel written in journal format. It is Jack's poetry journal for Miss Stretchberry's class. In the beginning, Jack is opposed to writing any form of poetry, but with some prodding and motivating with high-interest poems, Miss Stretchberry is able to help Jack be an enthusiastic writer of poetry.
With this unit your students will become the teacher, Miss Stretchberry by responding in journal format to each of Jack's entries. This unit includes a step-by-step guide to help your students with this process.
In addition, all poems shared by Miss Stretchberry have been typed with analysis questions to assist your students to become better at navigating through the poems they encounter.
