Brother, I'm Dying

by Edwidge Danticat

'It's not easy to start over in a new place,' he said. 'Exile is not for everyone. Someone has to stay behind, to receive the letters and greet family members when they come back.'


This NEA Big Read Teacher's Guide contains three lessons to lead you through Edwidge Danticat's Brother, I'm Dying. In addition, we have provided capstone projects and suggested essay topics.

the NEA Big Read Reader Resources deepen your exploration with interviews, booklists, timelines, and historical information. We hope this guide and syllabus allow you to have fun with your students while introducing them to the work of a great American author.

From the NEA, we wish you an exciting and productive school year.
