About the Course

Join us in a literary adventure with Karana, a girl left to survive on an island off the coast of California. As we read assigned chapters, this course will discuss Karana’s experiences with her pet dog Rontu and her clever means of survival. We’ll look at different elements of the story and the following topics through instructor videos and online course resources:

  • background information about the author and the setting of time and place of the story to enhance understanding
  • comprehension questions and beginning analytical and higher order thinking skill questions about the story
  • elements of the story – parts of the plot, a plot map, external and internal conflict, setting, character analysis, theme, and point of view
  • literary devices and techniques – imagery, similes, metaphors, personification, author’s writing style and techniques
  • vocabulary
