        • A. Summarize the article (5-7 sentence paragraph)

        • C.Describe the tone of the article in 1-2 complete sentences

Author’s Note Activity
  • With a partner, read the author’s note in your books. On a separate sheet of paper, answer the following questions by using 2-3 complete sentences:
    • 1. Why did Krakauer continue to investigate McCandless’ life, even after the issue of Outside magazinewas published?
    • 2. In your own words, explain the three themes Krakauer discovered through investigating McCandless’ story.
    • 3. Why does Krakauer tell us McCandless’ fate on the front cover? What is he trying to draw the audience's attention to? (Think of Shakespeare)
    • 4. In your own words, describe the different attitudes that people have about McCandless.
    • 4. Predict: What is Krakauer’s attitude toward McCandless?
surveying the text
Surveying the Text
  • Read through the short epigraphs that come before the chapters begin (an epigraph is a relevant quotation at the beginning of a book or a chapter, etc.). Using 3-5 sentences each; paraphrase the three epigraphs that stand out to you the most. For each epigraph, write a 2-3-sentence inference that states how this epigraph might have influenced McCandless.
  • Look at the maps and photographs. What can you infer about McCandless’ journey, his personality, and his motivations for going on his journey? (3-5 sentences)
  • Read the chapter titles. How do they relate to the text?
