Teacher Resource Guides

Thistledown's Teacher Resource Guides differ from our Student Response Guides. The Teacher Resource Guides have a much enriched approach to student response discussions and provide more formal cognitive exercises. A premium is placed on student opinion and imagination. As effective as they are, they were not created to be a replacement for or representation of the teacher's critical analysis of the work.

Grades 10 & 12

Speculative Fiction Teacher Resource Guide
 

ISBN: 978-1-895449-47-1

The Thistledown Press Speculative Fiction Guide includes three novels by Canadian writers: Wind Shifter by Linda Smith, Dance of the Snow Dragon by Eileen Kernaghan, and The Fungus Garden by Brian Brett. This guide is designed to enhance the work and interaction of students and teachers alike, and although each novel is treated independently there are many opportunities for overlap if the teacher chooses to emphasize the common elements among them.

For each of the novels the arrangement is as follows: the Overview section, which includes:

  • Teaching Focus;
  • Plot (Content);
  • Characterization;
  • Themes;
  • The Writer's Craft (Structure and Style);

the Questions section, divided into:

  • Speculations
  • General Questions;
  • Other Activities;

finally, there is a series of Essay Questions to further develop students' writing and research skills.

For thematic connections see specific title.

This guide is free with each class set purchase of 20 or more
