Teaching Resources


In tandem with developing a shared reading and conversational experience for students, the One Book Program also encourages a collaborative teaching community. Learn more about the themes and experiences described in this year's book.

For resources that go beyond the book, including discussion questions, classroom resources, links, and cultural resources, you can click here or here, for a reading guide from the publisher, and here for a teacher's guide. For any other questions, please contact onebook@csus.edu

If you create an assignment that proves to be effective for your class and would like to share it, please send it to onebook@csus.edu. We'll post it among the resources below!

For FYS instructors, please check your Canvas Instructor Source Page shortly, for the First Year Seminar Teaching Resource: Becoming Nicole.
