Product Description

This accompanying Google Slides presentation is 80+ slides long. I have created slides that contain classroom-suitable pieces of advice as offered in the near-final chapter of Matt Haig's fantastic novel, The Humans.

In my classroom, I have used them in the following and varied ways:

  • To put up on my school monitors, so students can think about the advice as they walk the halls.
  • To put up in my classroom as either posters or on the overhead.
  • To use as discussion-starters in my class, usually during the novel study, though I have used it to much success even when not reading the novel in class.
  • To use as writing prompts. I will post one piece of advice a day and have students engage in a 10-minute response write, which often turns into a class discussion.
  • After several of these (throughout the course of the year, as there are over 80 on offer here), I have students come up with their own pieces of "Advice for a human" and then usually share with the class in some sort of presentation . (See my other resource for the worksheet for that activity.)

The Humans is a great novel to teach. At its core, the novel contains a message about not only what it means to be human, but also how to live a 'good' human life. This resource will allow for much discussion, re-examining, and writing about the novel's themes. I hope you and your students find it as fruitful as I do with mine. :-)
