Through the fictitious character, William Hawkins interacting with two "real" Pilgrim children, Giles and Constance Hopkins, your students will learn why the Pilgrims wanted to come to America and of their adventures on the Mayflower and in the wilds of New England. 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 Pilgrim 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. Then students read the story and do activities. When completed, the students take the book home! The Teacher Guide
provides complete instructions on how to print and compile the Personalized Student Reader. It also contains lesson plans with activities for each chapter, as well as vocabulary worksheets for both the Digital Screen Reader and the Personalized Student Reader.
