This The Call of the Wild: Culture and History lesson plan also includes:
Jack London's novel The Call of the Wild is set during the Yukon Gold Rush and describes the harsh environment of the Klondike. Ask your class to describe the Klondike and consider the motivation needed to take a journey like the one so many made in the 1890s. Next, have pupils look back into the book and draw maps of Buck's journey so far, labeling his experiences at each location.
- Includes a homework assignment to keep learners on track with the reading
- Consider adding in a short brainstorming portion to prepare students for the discussion section of the lesson
