Product Description:

Set in 13th century England, this Newbery Award winner tells of the adventures of Adam, the 11 year old son of a minstrel, as he travels around Southern England. He begins the journey with his father and his faithful cocker spaniel, Nick. However, when an unscrupulous minstrel steals his dog, Adam tries to recover him, losing track of his father in the process. This leaves 11-year old Adam alone on the roads to take care of himself, using his harp and minstrel skills to gain food and shelter as he seeks his lost puppy and father. 317 pgs.

From 500 A.D. to 1530 A.D., this literature approach to history takes students through the medieval period via some of the best classic and historic literature available. Students read works by classic authors such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Sir Walter Scott. They learn about heroic figures of the time like Wycliffe, Tyndale, Joan of Arc, Luther, Saladin and more. This one-year course has been revised and the publishers have broken the study into two guides; one for intermediate/junior high grades, and one for high school. The guides are now full-color. The Intermediate/Junior High guide features 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments, mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft suggestions, vocabulary lists and more.
