Classroom Resources

Here’s a little help for teachers to get the most mileage out of my middle grade novels. Each book in my Classroom Resources series includes chapter-by-chapter discussion/study questions, vocabulary, social studies extension ideas, primary sources, and web links, all aligned with Grade Level Content Expectations and Common Core standards. Paperbacks are printed with handy 8.5 x 11 reproducible pages.
