This is an excellent resource for students. Sparknotes helps students to understand and connect to literature by providing insightful summaries, analysis, character studies, study questions, and other tools. Students should use this website to help them understand the texts we will be reading. SPARKNOTES SHOULD NOT BE USED AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR DOING THE READING!!! Rather, this is a tool to help with comprehension and analysis. Class assignments, tests, and projects will target knowledge of the texts, and simply reading the Sparknotes will not be sufficient to be successful in class. Do your reading, consult helpful resources, and contact Mr. Tibbens if you have any questions or problems.
