'The Teaching Guide is designed to accompany the Macquarie PEN Anthology of Australian Literature. It comprises ten units framed around concepts that focus on a range of themes, ideas and issues, for lower, middle and upper secondary English students. It is supplemented by a range of film clips and other resources.
'While the Teaching Guide is designed specifically for secondary teachers and students, tertiary teachers will find useful questions and ideas within these units that could be used with their classes. The focus statements for each of the ten units along with the list of suggested texts provide ideas that could be adapted for discussion or assignment work at tertiary level.' (Publication summary)
