Literary Treks: Characters on the Move


Product Description
Offering a wealth of maps and geographic routes for 28 books, this guide illustrates how to teach with literary maps, taking students on a journey through real and imaginary terrains. Entries span a range of genres and literary formats (including novels, dramas, and diaries); each follows a book's protagonist through space and time, covering places visited as well as historical figures, customs, cultures, and events. 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. Titles include:
  • Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl
  • Brave New World
  • Go Tell It on the Mountain
  • Great Expectations
  • Julius Caesar
  • Moby Dick
  • O Pioneers!
  • A Prayer for Owen Meany
  • Song of Solomon
  • Who Killed My Daughter?
  • And many more
