Teacher's Guides

Guides to facilitate classroom engagement for Fitzhenry & Whiteside children’s books

Many of the children’s titles in the Fitzhenry & Whiteside collection are school classroom and curriculum books, and as such offer teacher’s guides to plan educational activities that will encourage students to get excited about the material.

Many of our Teacher's Guides are available for free as downloadable pdf files or MS Word documents.
