Join Pedro and Francisco in an exciting adventure with Christopher Columbus on his first voyage of discovery to the "New World." Explorer Courage is a story based on the actual logbook of Christopher Columbus and is designed to present an accurate and engaging account of his first voyage of discovery. There are two distinct versions for your students to enjoy. The Digital Screen Reader
allows students to read the story via PDF on a computer screen. This version has color photos and large print. The alternative version, the Personalized Student Reader
, is an exciting new concept designed to get quality reading material directly into the hands of every student. Teachers using this version of Explorer Courage can print a full class set of readers and have the students make them into booklets (including binding). The student illustrates the cover with their own drawing and continues to illustrate the book as they read chapter-to-chapter. When completed, the student takes the book home! The Teacher Guide
provides complete instructions on how to print and compile the Personalized Student Readers. It also contains lesson plans with activities for each chapter, as well as vocabulary worksheets.
