There’s a Text Set for That
Have you assigned “1984”? We have a text set that includes stories on the National Security Agency and government surveillance. Our Text Set on Upton Sinclair’s “The Jungle” includes articles on food safety and animal welfare. We’ve also included articles that align to such themes as education, deception and freedom that can be found in “Huckleberry Finn”, or to the themes of survival, popularity and bullying in “Lord of the Flies”. See all 99 Text Sets for Literature.
