Desired study guides

Hi group!

I'm planning to use Walking Across Egypt by Clyde Edgerton in one of my classes this semester. However, eNotes doesn't have a study guide on this book.

How about we make a list of books that we'd like eNotes to acquire study guides and lesson plans for???

I'll start the list with Walking Across Egypt.

I will second the call for The Book Thief.  There are so few resources available for this book!  I would also like to see more resources for The Giver, but I know those are being worked on.  One of the great things about this site is that the number of guides will continue to grow, and the material available for each will too.  Some books have so many great resourcesl, I can't wait until they are all available for other books too!

We have a fairly basic critical analysis and overview here: http://www.enotes.com/black-like-me-salem/black-like-me-9660000062 which may help you get started with the book.

You could also try posting some initial questions here: http://www.enotes.com/black-like-me/group/

Good luck, it's a very interesting book and one that made an impression on me when I read it.

I am teaching "Black Like Me" later this semester. I have never read it, and really know absolutely nothing about it. Is there a study guide or a unit plan that you have used and found effective? Has anybody taught this book?

I adore The Book Thief and would love to teach it, but apparently I am the only one on campus who doesn't feel it's incredibly depressing, and since I just requested Color of Water copies, I can't swing a request for a new novel.  However, when I was considering it, I did find some internet resources.

I am not putting a space in those addresses, but a space is appearing.  When you copy and paste the links, you just have to take that extra space out of there.

I spent the summer writing curriculum for my freshman honors english course, and I added The Invisible Wall as an outside reading for the Romeo and Juliet unit. It's still a relativley new book, but I really think it will gain popularity quickly. It's a wonderful memoir about forbidden love!

I would love to have an eNotes section for Captain John Smith's The History of Virginia (not a book, but would still love to have eNotes for it).  I am teaching Amer. Lit. I this semester and could use it. :-)

I am teaching The Book Thief and looking for lessons/ideas for teaching it to a 10th grade English class.

If anyone has taught it before I would be grateful for any tips.
