The Hobbit Teacher Guide


The Hobbit Teacher Sample

In The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien tells the story of Mr. Bilbo Baggins and his unexpected and rather uncomfortable adventure over the edge of the Wild. Rousted from a comfortable life in his hobbit hole by the wizard Gandalf, Bilbo joins a company of dwarves as they seek to reclaim their home far away in the Lonely Mountain. Along the journey, Bilbo has one adventure after another and meets many extraordinary creatures including goblins, trolls, elves, wargs, giant eagles, and even the fearsome dragon, Smaug. At the end of his adventures, Bilbo Baggins returns to life in his hobbit hole, but with an understanding that he has been forever changed by his journey “there and back again.” The Hobbit Teacher Guide enables educators to guide students to a deeper understanding of the novel and a greater awareness of the central proposition that gives the story ultimate meaning and expression.
