Product Description

This resource includes:

-- four illustrated pages about the author Jack London and his iconic novel The Call of the Wild. Also included is information on the Klondike gold rush that is the setting for the book.

-- a timeline for London's life is included on page 4 for student reference.

-- two pages of questions (assessing comprehension as well as expressing opinions while citing evidence)

-- two vocabulary work pages: for this activity, students define each word and then apply that word to what they have learned from the passages. The vocabulary words on both pages are from the texts.

-- question and vocabulary work are divided into two sections: for pages 1 and 2 and for pages 3 and 4 and the student work pages are clearly marked.

-- A full answer key.

Students do not have to read the novel to complete and enjoy this resource. On the other hand, the texts do not contain any “spoilers” if your students are reading the book. The resource is best done before students read The Call of the Wild, as it provides interesting background information.

I also have in my store a biographical resource about Jack London for older students:

5 Days with Jack London

Also available are the following pre-reading units in a somewhat different format:

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Number the Stars

My Brother Sam is Dead

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes
