PBS LearningMedia: Great American Read

Screenshot
English literature teachers at many levels, as well as fans of classic literature, may be interested in this collection of educational resources from PBS LearningMedia created to accompany the 2018 PBS series The Great American Read. The collection is organized into three categories (elementary, middle, and high school), each containing resources related to titles that are often read at the indicated grade levels. Most of the featured titles are in the high school category, where readers will find classics such as The Great Gatsby and Pride and Prejudice, as well as contemporary selections like The Martian and The Hunger Games. Examples from the middle school section include The Outsiders and Little Women, while the elementary category highlights favorites like Charlotte's Web. Visitors to this collection will find video clips from The Great American Read, lesson plans, links to educational websites, and other resources, all chosen to help "contextualize the authors and the impact these books have had on specific readers and throughout history."
