The Sixth grade is reading, Jack London’s, The Call of the Wild. It is a great, powerful story that is full of complex themes and symbolism. It is not an easy read, but one that is important that our student’s have in the their portfolio of novels that they have read.
I try to make this classic book fun, by immersing the kids in the life of the characters. Today we tasted what it would be like to be searching for gold. It is hard, frustrating, but SO exciting when you do strike it rich!
