Teacher, Study and Discussion Guides for Life As We Knew It, The Dead And The Gone, and This World We Live In
While many of the following links are available on the side of the blog, I thought it might be helpful to have a single entry with links to various teacher's, discussion and study guides, book talks, and other useful things for Life As We Knew It, The Dead And The Gone, and This World We Live In.
I'll try to keep this entry up to date, with new links as I find them.
The single best source remains the University of Missouri eThemes for LAWKI.
Amongst its links are those for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's Classroom Resources for all three books, and Scholastic's guide for LAWKI.
Here's the Teen Book Guide to LAWKI.
There's a Super Summary Guide to LAWKI.
I just discovered this Life As We Knew It book unit with writing prompts.
The invaluable Nancy Keene has book talks for Life As We Knew It and The Dead And The Gone.
Here's my blog entry, full of links, for program ideas for LAWKI and d&g.
I also wrote a blog entry about the science of LAWKI and d&g.
If you're interested in my writing process, here are my preliminary notes for d&g and TWWLI as well as scraps of dialogue both used and unused.
Just in case you talk about me, here's how to pronounce Pfeffer correctly.
With 76 books published, and #77 (Blood Wounds) due in the fall of 2011, I need a list of my books. This is the one I go to. It's not completely accurate, but what in life is.
Have some doubts about the originality of those essays on The Dead And The Gone? Maybe your students did a little shopping here.
Scooter and I hope this helps!
