This award-winning novel is a provocative “rite-of-passage” and “loss of innocence” book perfect for both reluctant and advanced readers. This comprehensive unit bundle includes 168 pages and 4-6 weeks of scaffolded and student-tested activities and materials.

Each bundle component includes a Common Core guide.


Comprehensive Instructional Guide

The instructional guide provides essential questions, overarching skills, overarching themes, and assured experiences along with a possible lesson sequence that includes timing and implementation tips.

Analytical Notes Strategy

Analytical Notes can help your students take better notes by providing a simple system for recording notes. Additionally, they help students “think” about what they have read.

Annotation Organizer: Active Reading Strategy

The Annotation Organizer: Active Reading Strategy supports close and active reading. Students use questions to guide the annotation process.

Body Biography: Creative Summative Assessment

The 13 Reasons Why Body Biography is powerful project that guides students through creating a visual and written portrait illustrating several aspects of a character's life within a literary work.

Character Analysis Organizer

The Character Analysis Organizer is a specialized graphic organizer that guides students to identify direct evidence from the text related to characterization, symbolism, and conflict for each main character in Thirteen Reasons Why.

Quick Picture Strategy for Poetry

The Quick Picture Strategy is a powerful method for stimulating recall and promoting critical thinking. After reading and annotating Jay Asher’s poem “Soul Alone,” students generate quick images of ideas supporting a teacher-generated “area of focus.” The images the students produce help them make and reinforce connections with the text.

Keyword Strategy for Comprehension

The Keyword Strategy is a simple step-by-step annotation method to help students maximize their reading comprehension and proficiency. Thirteen Reasons Why has provocative topics and this strategy helps students process their thoughts.

Interim Assessments

Using the Interim Assessment, students gain a heightened recall and appreciation of the story, as well as increased insights into relationships between character behaviors and actions within the plot.

Nonfiction Articles

These articles allow students to connect events from 13 Reasons Why with related nonfiction topics. The articles are embedded in our Side-by-Side Annotation Organizer and use the Keyword Strategy for increased comprehension.

Short Essay Test Response Strategy Using Analytical Notes

This is a four-step method, with a detailed instructional guide, for writing short answer responses to test questions.

Vocabulary Guide

Student worksheet containing twenty-two vocabulary words from the novel. Each word includes a direct quote from the novel with citation. Students use context to determine word meaning and generate their own illustrative sentences using the vocabulary words. (Good practice for the New SAT.)
