How to use

This resource can be used as supplemental teacher material or as a primary basis for literature study to:

  • Draw students into a text with pre-reading questions and warm-up prompts, maintain engagement with in-class analysis through free-writing or discussion, and assess knowledge and comprehension with quizzes.
  • Ensure deeper understanding and enjoyment of the literature with activities for all learning types.
  • Stretch students’ critical thinking and writing skills with differentiated essay topics.

Note to Teachers: To support lesson-planning, connections to the work’s primary themes are noted throughout this resource (love’s complexities, feuds and rivalries, young versus old, authority and control, secrets, identity, gender relationships).
