There are many ways to use this resource. Here are a few:
As you work your way though the book, use these quotations as springboards for class discussions. Instead of digging through the book, simply allow this presentation to guide you through the chapters. These discussions may be teacher directed and led, or totally student led.
Put students in small groups and have them "seminar" over these quotations, offering analysis and interpretation of deeper meanings.
Use these as daily reading checks or quizzes. Place a quotation (or more) on the screen and have students give written responses about who said the quote, what it means, and how it influences the plot or themes of the book.
The possibilities are endless.
