Description

In this lesson, from EDSITEment, students analyze Jack London's "The Call of the Wild."

They support their stands with historical evidence or evidence from the text. Finally, students write an essay, complete with hypothesis and textual support, on London's approach to the animal story in "The Call of the Wild."
