The Portals to Reading series accompanies time-tested literature that should be an imporatnt part of every school's reading program. The activities will reinforce a wide variety of language and reading skills which are generally part of the curriculum at the reading level of the novel. However, the Portals pick-and-choose format gives you the final decision about which activites will enhance you student's personal learning.
The activites in this book are based on sentences and paragraphs especially written to support the teaching objective of each lesson. Clearly, such literary matters as style and flavor may be experienced only by reading the book itself. Thus, the words of the aruthor have been left where they belong - in their pure form in the pages of the novel.
