This Teacher Resource Guide allows for student exploration into Up All Night, Thistledown's highly recommended high school short story collection. The guide will evoke those study questions and create the kind of in class activities and discussion that are an essential part of the school reading experience. Many of the stories in Up All Night have their challenges — as the stories' subjects range from issues of teen pregnancy and school bullying to sibling rivalry and hatred.
This Teacher Resource Guide has been created to guide discussion on difficult topics and still create the most beneficial language activities from the writing in the stories. Built on the sound premises of establishing the teaching focus on the writing elements of plot, theme, character, and style in order to elicit student response, the guide also allows for extensive research probing and other library work to encourage student discussion, and feedback on contemporary issues.
This guide is free with each class set purchase of 20 or more
