In this State Standards-aligned Literature Kitac, we divide the novel by chapters or sections and feature reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. In every chapter, we include Before You Read and After You Read questions. The Before You Read activities prepare students for reading by setting a purpose for reading. They stimulate background knowledge and experience, and guide students to make connections between what they know and what they will learn. The After You Read activities check students' comprehension and extend their learning. Students are asked to give thoughtful consideration of the text through creative and evaluative short-answer questions and journal prompts. Also included are writing tasks, graphic organizers, comprehension quiz, test prep, word search, and crossword to further develop students' critical thinking and writing skills, and analysis of the text. About the Novel: Treasure Island is one of the most perfect examples of an exciting classic adventure tale. Masterfully crafted, this stunning book of piracy on the tropic seas is an unforgettable tale of treachery between good and evil. First published in 1883, titled Young Folks then titled The Sea-Cook and finally Treasure Island. Developed from an imaginary map that Stevenson and his stepson Lloyd Osbourne made while on vacation, Treasure Island is an all time classic for those who love romance and adventure. Perhaps the reason for the book's allure to children is the famous hero-villain character, Long John Silver with his unscrupulous buccaneer-rogues on their quest for the greedy lust for gold.
