eNotes + Crosswords: Enter to win a Lesson Plan!

eNotes gets a lot of thank-you notes from teachers and fan mail from students daily. Okay – more like Tweets from the students. We haven’t received an actual letter since 2003.

And while we love being recognized for all our hard work, what gets out of bed in the morning is making the lives of our teachers and students easier.

However, when one of our fans let us know “eNotes” was an answer in The New York Times crossword puzzle, we could not stop grinning and giggling!

This honor actually came at a coincidental time, since our editors are hard at work adding educational crossword puzzles to our teacher Lesson Plans. To celebrate us making it “big” (of course there’s nothing bigger than being in the NYT crossword), we’re giving three teachers a free Lesson Plan of their choosing!

Teachers: To enter, simply comment here on this blog post OR on this Facebook post which book you would like see turned into an educational crossword puzzle for your class.

Thanks for your continuous support!

    Three books to use for crossword puzzles would be Catcher in the Rye, Of Mice and Men, and The Great Gatsby. These books frequently appear on summer reading lists for many students of American Literature (10th Graders).

    I would love to see some puzzle questions relative to The Hunger Games, Romeo and Juliet, or Tomorrow When the War Began.

    My choices would be Romeo and Juliet, The Odyssey, The Great Gatsby, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
