Collection: Literature Guides

Most English language arts and writing teachers sign up for the job because they want to inspire children by sharing their love of literature. If you're one of those teachers, you're probably on a perpetual search for English literature study guides that coordinate with your favorite texts while meeting the demands of Common Core standards. There are quite a few teaching guides for novels on the market, but it's difficult to find unit plans for teachers that are comprehensive, engaging, age appropriate, and fully reproducible.

To solve this problem, Simply Novel offers a series of novel study guides for texts that students enjoy learning. These lesson plans for English Language Arts teachers make it easy to integrate the skills students must master for the Common Core, through lessons and activities, reading tasks, study guide questions, small and large group discussions, quizzes, tests, essay prompts, and culminating projects that hold the attention of students in upper elementary, middle and high school grades.
