     The Teacher Edition has reduced student pages with teaching helps "around the edges." These helps include correlating pages from the support materials, teaching options, grammar connections, warm-ups, practice activities, answers, CCSS notations, and, my favorite, tech tips (i.e. suggestions for correct e-usage). Additionally, the TE (with divider tabs to help navigate between the grammar, writing, diagramming, and handbook segments) also includes introductory information for each genre study - literature links, and writer's workshop tips.

    Pam Conrad brings you this gripping log of Pedro de Salcedo, who was aboard the great voyage with Christopher Columbus from August 3rd of 1492 to February 14th of 1493. Pedro is a young man of only fourteen, and it is his first time away from home. The captain quickly makes him a sort of right-hand man. Pedro watches how intensely the men doubt Columbus from the beginning. The day before they finally touch land, Columbus promises they will turn around home. As fate would have it, the next day they land in a place Columbus names San Salvador. Here they gain experience with the natives, who are extremely docile and generous. In each place they land on, the people gradually become unfriendly - perhaps some words of caution were spread? Soon enough, the entire crew realizes they have not landed in India and there are no spices or silks or pearls. In fact, nobody except Columbus cares about anything except heading home to Spain at this point. After the sinking of the Santa Maria, some of the men board the Nina to go home, and the others are left behind to start a Spanish settlement in the New World. Pedro fears he may not ever return home. On the last day at sea, he encases a last letter into a barrel and throws it out to the ocean so that if it ever reaches his home, his mother should know that he loves her and she should pray for his soul. This recounting is sometimes suspenseful, troubling, and mystifying, but at all times it is engaging.

    This classic by Thor Heyerdahl tells the remarkable true story of Heyerdahl and his small five-man crew that sailed from South America to the Polynesians in 1947. The remarkable thing about this voyage is that it was completed on a nine-log raft with no modern conveniences used to construct or sail. Heyerdahl was trying to prove that Polynesians may have originated in South America and then sailed 4,300 miles across the Pacific Ocean to settle hundreds or thousands of years ago. He was intrigued by Polynesian folklore about a mythical hero named Kon-Tiki who came from distant lands to start a civilization and decided to prove his theory that ancient people easily could have sailed across oceans to migrate. The three months the crew spent in the open water is full of exploration, storms, whales, sharks, and more. This exciting story is so full of daring, courage, and adventure that it's almost hard to believe it's a true story. A 48-page readers' supplement is included in the middle of the book that gives an ultra-condensed version of the story and includes black and white photographs from the actual voyage. A fascinating book and great library builder. 240 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This story describes the voyage of Captain James Cook from 1768 to 1771 as recorded in the journal of 11-year old Nicholas Young, a stowaway on board the H.M.S Endeavor. Captain Cook's secret mission is to discover and claim new territory in the name of England. Although fictional, it is based on historical fact.
