Abstract:

Yo-ho-ho! Join our terror on the high seas as stories of famous pirates from around the world are retold in this fast-moving series for kids in grades 3 through 6; each book includes an analysis page in each chapter that helps the kids understand what is real and what might have been fictionalized over time; Each book provides a concluding chapter that recounts for the kids whether the pirate is more legend or mostly truth.To this day, Francis Drake is known as one of the greatest sailors and ship captains that England ever produced. Yet in his own day the late 1600s he was also widely known as a pirate, a term he hated with a passion. Pirates were common criminals, he said, which he was not. Instead, he was a privateer, a fighter who had been directed by Queen Elizabeth I, to attack Spanish vessels and colonies in the Americas. In fact, Drake not only seriously hindered the Spanish, he also made history by becoming only the second sea captain to sail around the globe, an incredible feat in that era. That expedition, along with several of Drake s other colorful adventures, became the stuff of legend. Today, historians sometimes struggle to separate fact from fiction in retelling his exciting deeds.This book correlates well to common core standards that ask students to read stories and literature, as well as more complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in areas such as science and social studies. Students will be challenged and asked questions that push them to refer back to what they ve read. This stresses critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life.
