In this lesson, from EDSITEment, students analyze Jack London's "The Call of the Wild." They take a stand on whether London can be called a "nature faker" and on what he is attempting to communicate through his portrayal of Buck. 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."
