Twelve-year old Daniel Harte and his father, Harold, have recently arrived in colonial Boston in 1773. Daniel's new friend, Peter Ward, is a member of the patriotic group known as the Sons of Liberty. Join Daniel and Peter as they prepare for the biggest "tea party" in Boston's history. This engaging new fictional account of the Boston Tea Party is based on primary sources and is designed to be read by the entire class, in small groups or individually. 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 a color cover 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 Patriot 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.
