This specially adapted version of Jack London's first short stories, Stories of Ships and the Sea, is an interesting reading experience for all children. Students in Grades 4-8 will will become fully engaged in London's colorful retold sea adventures. Teachers can use these stories to introduce students to topics of seal hunting and the exciting experiences of young men at sea in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. 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 Stories of Ships and the Sea 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.
