Do you already have the book? Here are the ‘extras’ only. For each chapter, you will find:
- Questions that focus on the reader’s experience and perceptions, and are under the title ‘Ask Yourself’. These may be used to stimulate discussion or for a written assignment of your choice.
- Twelve words, typed in a suitably nautical style, which can be used as a spelling test (oral or written) or an opportunity to expand the reader’s vocabulary. (Definitions are not included. Outdated terms are generally not selected.)
- A notebook page, imitating a diary page which Jim could have had in the time period, on which the reader should summarize (in their best penmanship and style) the chapter just read.
- Two pages of extra questions and activity suggestions are found at the end of the book.
No pirate tale can compare with this one. Prepare yourself for subtle treachery, rough adventure, vivid characters and first class writing!
