How to Use eNotes Resources in the Classroom How To


Welcome to eNotes! We are delighted that you have become a part of our vibrant community. As a teacher, you know that time is your most valuable commodity. You want to offer your students the best learning experience possible, but meetings, grading, fund-raising, and other non-teaching-related issues frequently cut into your ability to thoroughly evaluate texts and prepare meaningful activities. Using eNotes in your classroom will help you to make the most of each classroom hour. The following information is designed as a quick reference guide to our most popular teaching resources: documents, lesson plans, and study guides.


Written by scholars and teachers, eNotes study guides feature a comprehensive analysis of a work, including an introduction, plot summary, character analysis, discussion of themes, excerpts of published criticism, and much more. Many eNotes guides also contain essays and important quotations with commentary. Each guide is specifically designed to meet the needs of high school and undergraduate college students and their teachers.


Preparing lesson plans is one of the most time-consuming tasks a teacher is required to do. If you would rather spend your energy implementing creative, thought-provoking ideas rather than doing administrative tasks, let eNotes help you. Whether you want thought-provoking discussion questions or ready-to-print tests and activities, everything you need to prepare for a class is included. Let's take a look at how to use eNotes lesson plans and what they have to offer you—a real teacher in a real classroom.
