Teaching and Reading Guides
If you choose to use Chris Crutcher books in your classrooms or reading groups, these professionally drafted guides might be helpful. If you have any trouble downloading the PDF files, contact Crutcher's assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org and she'll get them emailed as attachments. If you are willing to share your reading or discussion guide for one of CC's books, send it to his assistant as a PDF or Word file and we'll make it available to other educators, too.
