In conjunction with reading “To Build a Fire” by Jack London, students will write a short story from one of two alternative points of view. They may pick either writing the point of view of the dog or someone who discovers the body. Students will have to decide what details from the text their narrator will know. They will also work to model the style and mood of the original text.
Students will choose either the point of view of the dog or the point of view of a person who finds the man's body.
