Use these "standards" as a means of checking student achievement, and being sure to align objectives and assignments with these general expected skills. It might be a good idea to show these objectives to students at the beginning of the year, to give them a good idea of what to expect.

While Kipling is not a staple of today's reading lists, many of his works have become classics. This British site offers a biography, listings of books and poems, a poem of the day, and links to related resources and publications. It could be useful as part of an author study, or for a student interested in finding additional books by the author.

tag(s): authors (94), literature (218)

In the Classroom

This site is a sure winner for a student author study in small groups or individually, as well. Include this site as a link on your teacher web page during a study of Kipling's writings, and ask students to investigate one of his interests or part of his background to share with the class. Share them with a multimedia poster using a tool like Adobe Spark, reviewed here, or a podcast recording using radionomy, reviewed here.
