Resources and Article
« on: February 05, 2020, 08:19:22 PM »
1) A nice brief article titled: Middle Earth in the Classroom: Studying J. R. R. Tolkien by Richard Roos. The article is nice in that it gives an overview of the various literary devices Tolkien utilizes. In particular, Roos focuses on the ballads that are found within the Hobbit, and brings to light how they can be understood by students. Overall, I would use this article to reflect and pull new information from the Hobbit to engage students thinking.

2) The Hobbit: How England inspired Tolkien's Middle Earth by Rumeana Jahangir Gives an overview of the various settings within the Hobbit and where they probably correspond to in England. A teacher could use this content to have their students fictionalize different places within their town/city. Students could see if they can properly identify the places their peers wrote about.

3) "The Hobbit" Full Cast Radio Drama by BBC Radio Group. I would consider using the audio of the Hobbit, for a guided reading during class time.
