    four choices.
    Face Reading: Choose a scene from the book, jot down the page numbers of the scene and a brief summary of what is happening. Use a white piece of paper to draw the faces of the people in that scene. The most important thing about your drawings is that the facial expression match how that character is probably feeling during the scene. On the back of the drawing, explain the character’s emotional state and why they felt that way during the scene you chose.
    The Counselor’s Couch: Imagine that, during the story, the main characters could stop what they were doing and visit the counselor for a little help dealing with their problems. Choose a scene, pick a character, and create a brief skit where the character talks about all his problems and feelings with a counselor. Feel free to bring in more than one character for a group session, if you feel that’s appropriate.
    Action Map: Choose an action or exploration scene and draw a map that visually documents not only the part of the island, but also the geography, major landmarks, and movements of the characters.

    Create a Pirate Handbook/ Articles of Agreement
    A handbook is often used in an organization to help people understand the rules, procedures and policies that everybody will agree to. It’s a basic summary that describes how things work for that group.
    Think of your student handbook. What is in it? What does it describe? What are the sections?
    Now, imagine that you are organizing a pirate crew. You have a ship. You know where you are going. And right now you are in the process of hiring a crew. Using the information you’ve gathered from the green articles we’ve read, your assignment is to create a handbook for all the new pirates you will be sailing with.
    You can use your student handbook (the blue sheets in your planner) as a model, but you must include:
    Pirate language. Remember your audience. This is written for pirates, by a pirate. You have to speak their language.
    A cover page – this will include a title, the name of your ship, and an image (symbol) of the Jolly Roger you will fly under. This is not the same Jolly Roger you already created.
    A table of contents
    An introduction page—this page will include a paragraph or two summarizing and describing the purpose of the handbook.
    4 sections (minimum) of rules, procedures and/or policies. You might include things related to conduct, fighting, who’s in charge, jobs (division of labor), food, punishments, division of treasure, compensation for injury, etc . . . .
    A conclusion page.
    The above bullet points are the requirements for this assignment. Anything above and beyond that (illustrations, additional sections) will be extra credit.
    You may type this, but that is not required. Pirates didn’t use computers (or typewriters).
