Don't know where to start? We've prepared a number of short "spotlights" that feature a dime novel from the collection. Each provides contextual information about the novel, a brief biography of the author, an annotated bibliography of scholarship, and discussion questions and activities. These might be used in the classroom as part of a larger unit on the dime novel or for independent study.

Spotlights were written by dime novel scholars, as well as faculty and graduate students at NIU. If you'd be interested in writing your own spotlight, or if you're a teacher developing curricula using dime novels, please get in touch!
