I feel confident that this Reading Guide will guide students effectively and engagingly through this exciting coming-of-age novel! Here you will find interesting an article about Stevenson, key vocabulary, a character chart, and a number of activities for each chapter. This guide will allow students to understand the novel, as well as begin to think deeply about the important themes. I want my students to learn to summarize, compare characters, identify literary elements, and to track Jim's road to maturity. A variety of activities and learning strategies promote higher level thinking. This Reading Guide has it all!
