    1. Marven of the Great North Woods By: Kathryn Lasky Click to meet the author Genre: Biography Author’s Purpose: Information and Entertainment Reading Skill: Drawing Conclusions Compiled by Terry Sams, Piedmont

    2. Summary Marven was only ten years old when his great-aunt died of influenza. To protect him from the disease, his family sent him far away from the city, up to the Great North Woods. There he kept the books at a logging camp. Marven was scared of the big, grouchy lumberjacks, especially Jean Louis, a “jack” whose feet were as big as skillets. But he was even more scared when he skied into the woods-and thought he saw a grizzly bear.

    3. Genre: Biography • A biography is a story of a real person’s life, written by another person. • It is written in the third-person. The author writes, “He was free! He found a job with a printer.” • A biography can cover a person’s whole life or part of it. • An autobiography is also a story of a real person’s life, but it is written by someone else. • Make a Biography

    4. Comprehension Skill – Drawing Conclusions • Author’s don’t always tell you everything.

    6. Vocabulary Skill:Multiple-Meaning Words • Many words have more than one meaning.

    9. Figurative Language – Simile and Metaphor • Figurative language is a language that goes beyond the ordinary meanings of words. Similes and metaphors help make the images in the story richer and clearer. • A simile uses words like or as to compare two things that are not alike. “. . . one eye. . . glittered like a blue star. . .” • A metaphor also compares two things that are not alike but it does not use any words of comparison. “The shadows were the lumberjacks.”
