**This resource document accompanies the anthology assignment posted ABOVE in the anthology section of the website.
Anthology Resources: Please remember these are POSSIBLE suggestions for anthology work. It is up to students to choose works they feel represent their thinking and work best with the theme. It is also the student's responsibility to find resources that are appropriate for their reading level and have content they AND their parents/guardians are comfortable with.
General resources by theme:

http://www.commonlit.org/themes


Short stories resources: Remember that short stories pack a big punch. One short story might touch on 5-10 of the themes/topics we are exploring. If you find an author who writes short stories that all seem to work well for your anthology, you are welcome to work with just that author, or one or two. Same for poetry.
