Classroom Considerations

  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information

  • The Common Core designed teaching guide includes a reading schedule, background on Tolkien, a list of suggested research topics, a book list, and helpful links
  • A summary, comprehension questions, vocabulary list, discussion questions, essay topics, and critical commentary are provided for each chapter

  • The very academic approach to Tolkien's popular fantasy may not appeal to mid- or low-level readers
  • Comprehension questions would serve better as a guide to reading
  • Discussion questions would serve better as group research prompts
