Literary Treks: Characters on the Move
Libraries Unlimited, 2003 - 212 pages
Geographic summaries, itemized itineraries, and detailed maps help students trace each character's journey and comprehend the geographic scale of action. As a prelude to reading, the maps can help disadvantaged readers better understand the stories and settings of a book, which will significantly enhance any student's reading experience. Instruction on marking maps with notes and arrows will help students prepare for college-level classes as they organize their work, simplify confusing elements, outline chronology, and incorporate additional reading and research.
