Penguin- Puffin Teaching Package Destroying Avalon as a Cyber bullying Resource

For those of you interested in teaching Destroying Avalon and have not found anything useful in  my teaching package I’d like to direct you to Penguin’s Puffin Website:

http://www.penguin.com.au/puffin

Click on Teachers- then go to Teachers’ Notes

http://www.penguin.com.au/puffin/NOTES/f_notes.cfm

Then go to Units for the Secondary Classroom, pull down the menu and click on Destroying Avalon.

http://www.penguin.com.au/puffin/NOTES/secondary-pdf/Destroying%20Avalon%20by%20Kate%20McCaffrey.pdf

That’s the link (kinda long and scary looking isn’t it!!) But what you will end up with is a different angle for teaching Destroying Avalon. This focuses more on the text as a tool for combating bullying than as a ‘literary analysis’ of text- so I guess it depends on your aim.

But there you go two to choose from!

Teaching packages galore!

What could be better????

  1. Hi Kate!
    I would love to download this resource but the links don’t seem to be working. Could you send it to me? Or direct me to another place where I can access it?

  2. Hi Maria,
    I’m sorry about that- it doesn’t seem to work. I think maybe it’s an archived resource somewhere. There are still teaching notes on the Fremantle Press site https://www.fremantlepress.com.au/system/spree/files/attachments/000/000/043/original/DESTROYING_AVALON_teaching_notes_%283%29.pdf?1453710102

    and also the other resource package on this site

    I really hope one of these can be useful to you.
    Sorry!
    All the best,
    Kate
