PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a list of 351 vocabulary words from Jack London's novel, The Call of the Wild. Each vocabulary word is shown together with the sentence from the novel in which the word is first used.

The list is intended as a "starting point" for teachers seeking to extract a meaningful collection of vocabulary words. Obviously, you won't assign all 351 of these words, but instead you'll select words to fit a particular strategy or theme. For example, you might choose words that are related to a theme such as "transformation" or "animal" or "hostility/combat," or you might choose words that illustrate how words can be modified with affixes, or you might choose words which have "an unusual meaning" or "multiple meanings." Theme-related tags appear in brown. (When I taught the novel, I started by calling students' attention to the word "booming," near the start of the first chapter, and elicited their participation to identify multiple relevant meanings.)

This is an HTML document (web page, viewable using any web browser). You can also "cut and paste" the data or import it into Excel or another software program to sort, manipulate, and edit.

Great word list - very detailed! Consider making it into a spreadsheet so teachers can focus on specific sets of words (for example, by chapter, or by alphabetization)!
On  August 24, 2011Mark Welch answered:
Derrick, thanks for the feedback. I've modified the product description to clarify that the data can easily be "cut and pasted" or imported into another program, such as Microsoft Excel, where it can be manipulated, sorted, and edited.

I love reading The Call of the Wild and I am sure your students do too. Listing the vocabulary words “in the order of appearance” and citing the chapter, paragraph, and sentence will be very helpful for teachers who will want to pick and choose which vocabulary words to highlight.
Hope you have a great new school year,
Victoria Leon
