Product Description
Skip the reading checks and engage students in critical analysis!

This critical reading guide supports students through a close reading of Krakauer's book from author's note to epilogue. Each page of the resource focuses on three chapters, guiding students through allusions, style choices, and literary connections. One major focus of the reading guide is a connection to the Transcendentalists Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I have sourced and included additional resources such as the original New York Times article published about McCandless's death as well as a TED Talks presentation from Carine McCandless which connects her story from The Wild Truth to Krakauer's novel. These resources (and others) provide an additional perspective to the story and develop Chris McCandless as a more complete character.

If you are looking for a student-centered unit to fit into a text set, AP summer assignment, or to help support a classroom with a focus on facilitation, this product is perfect for you!
