Literature Links: Book Backdrops

Book Backdrops

Book Backdrops are teacher-curated primary source sets linked to books and accompanied by teaching ideas and/or teaching notes. They are continually added to the TPS Teachers Network using the album tool. A sampling of some great ones are listed below. All of the ones included here are accessible by anyone. But if you want to search for others and access comments on the sets from Network members, you’ll need to login or join this free educational online community.
