Using the Unit Overview in Imagine Reading

Each unit in Imagine Reading includes an Overview that helps Administrators and Educators navigate through different parts of the unit, see class progress on individual passages or poetry studies in the unit, and see when there are written responses for a passage or poetry study that need to be graded.
