The Call of the Wild Concludes This Week

We end The Call of the Wild this week by discussing the larger themes within the text and considering those themes in order to write an analytical paragraph, a paragraph that explains an insight or supports an argument about the text.  Students will discuss plot points, conflicts, and themes before developing a thesis statement that is Limited, Specific, and Unified (LSU).  This is challenging work – ask your student about his/her text and his/her thoughts about the themes, plot, and characters in the book.
