I really like your book The Phantom Tollbooth. The lesson plan calls for the "Figurative Language Chart" to be in editable form. Can you post is as a an editable document?

I tried to acces the powerpoint several different ways and can't get it to open. I know I used it last year, so I don't know what the problem is, but I really want to use it again!

Thanks for alerting us to this error, Claudia. We will post a PDF version of the Figurative Language Chart to this lesson ASAP.

I tried to access the "Figurative Language Chart," the "Featured Resource" in this lesson, and got the message that this page wasn't available. The chart is evidently an RTF. Is this a permanent condition or is there a way I can obtain this chart. It seems to be central to this lesson.
