Publisher’s Note

We are happy tomake available this Teacher’s Guide to the Core Classics version of Robinson Crusoe prepared by Kathy Sublette. We are presenting it and other guides in an electronic format so that is freely accessible to as many teachers as possible. This guide is one teacher’s vision of how to make this book both understandable and enjoyable to fourth grade students. You will obviously have ideas of your ownand may want to pick and choose among the activities and exercises offered here. The author has included an abundance of reading comprehension questions in order to guide the student through specific elements of the story; you may want to select among them according to the needs and reading levels of your students. Consider them, as well as everything else in the guide, to be an option or asuggestion rather than a requirement or an obligation. No doubt you will strive for a balance between reading for accuracy and promoting an imaginative grasp of the themes and a delight in the adventurous plot. The discussion questions and activities should help you in the latter regard. We hope that you find the background material, which is addressed specifically to teachers, useful preparation forteaching the book. As always, Core Knowledge prefers to emphasize what to teach rather than how to teach it, but we also are interested in helping teachers share their experience of what works in the classroom. We hope this guide helps make Robinson Crusoe an adventure in reading for you and your students.
