Editorial Reviews

Review

This is my third purchase from you, and again, you do not disappoint. How do you do it? My favorite activity is the literary analysis activity on Napoleon. I love how you seamlessly add this essay assignment into what they are learning as they read. It's not just "Oh, by the way kids, you have a paper due." It made literary analysis writing easy to incorporate with my other lessons. Your guide (as always) covers so many different aspects of the novel. Great job (again)! --Skittl4702 from via TeachersPayTeachers.com

About the Author

In 2005, Kristen Bowers, a high school English teacher in California, became frustrated and tired of writing her own worksheets, quizzes, tests, and activities to teach her students the required literature and the content standards on which her students were being tested at the district and state levels. At the time, resources and tools that were available for purchase were not up to her high standards of teaching, so she decided to create these materials herself.

Mrs. Bowers set to work to create one of the most comprehensive and innovative Literature Guide sets on the market. Joined by a middle school teacher with 21 years of secondary school experience, Secondary Solutions LLC began, and has since matured into a specialized team of intermediate and secondary teachers who have developed a set of Literature and Writing Guides unsurpassed by all others.

I cannot rave enough. There is so much paked into this teaching guide, I could spend a year teaching Animal Farm. However, there is not so much that you and your students feel overwhelmed. I enjoyed not having to create my own materials, worksheets and quizzes, and being able to relax a bit with my unit planned for me. My students enjoyed the activities and worksheets, and many students walked away saying Animal Farm was their new favorite book. I cannot say enough about this guide. Truly a hidden gem.

This is an excellent resource. Well worth the money. I bought a couple other guides for teaching Animal Farm, and this one is far better. The other ones just had comprehension questions and vocabulary lists. But, this one also had pages and pages of worksheets tying the teaching standards into the book (point of view, tone & mood, main & subordinate clauses, foreshadowing, etc). There were so many activities that I used that I would have never thought of myself.
