Journaling Through History
Each journal starter includes an illustration, a short narrative, and a writing prompt.

AP Teaching Unit
You no longer have to choose between "teaching the work" or "teaching to the test." Prestwick House Advanced Placement Teaching Units allow you to do both. Prestwick House AP Teaching Units meet the rigorous demands of the Advanced Placement class, with detailed study guides that focus on the types of literary knowledge students will have to demonstrate on their AP exams.
AP Teaching Units feature sharply focused multiple-choice and free-response focusing on those facets of literature that appear on the test each year.
Activity Packs help fulfill state-mandated objectives and national guidelines AND spark student learning.
Activity Packs feature a wide variety of activities such as role-playing, completing maps and charts, comparing authors' styles, and drawing from an array of sources. Activity Packs give students, individually or in small groups, hands-on experience with abstract literary concepts, including the intricacies of theme, nuances of style and plot, and motivations of characters.
By reflecting on what they've read, students develop new ideas and link these ideas to their lives. To facilitate this process, we offer reproducible Prestwick Response Journals in the tradition of the response-centered teaching movement.
Each Journal offers prompts for every chapter in the book encouraging students to relate their life experiences with those of the characters within the book. Your students will get more out of their literature when they feel personally involved. Makes a great warm-up activity.
The series is designed to probe the depth and richness of your favorite titles and usher your students into a fuller understanding of these works of literature.
Each guide offers clear and concise explanations of three different critical perspectives and provides class activities, discussion questions, and writing assignments to help you and your students examine the text from those views. Teach Macbeth from a feminist stance, discuss the use of archetype in The Scarlet Letter, and approach The Awakening from a Marxist position. You know you want to give your students more than simply plot, character, and theme, and now you finally can!
Each ready-to-use Prestwick PowerPack is full of reproducible, skills-based activities created especially for students in grades 5-8. From identifying and writing figurative language to seeing the world through the eyes of a character, your students will become actively engaged in each novel you teach. Prestwick PowerPacks save you time while making it easy for you to cover key skills and concepts.

I use eNotes often during the semester--it gives me ideas for materials to use for class and to refresh my memory with details about the literature I am planning to reuse. Kate
Thank you very much for providing this service-- you have a lot of very useful information, and I am so grateful!
I have already ordered again! Great lit unit!
I use your study questions as a base on which to build more critical questions, and I have time to develop more interesting lessons.
I am a college student and thanks to your site my paper is done and I understand Macbeth more than I ever did before!
