Transcript of Unit #4 Novel Choices

When Sophie has to visit her mother at her sanctuary for bonobos, she's not thrilled to be there. Then Otto, an infant bonobo, comes into her life, and for the first time she feels responsible for another creature. But peace does not last long for Sophie and Otto. When an armed revolution breaks out in the country, the sanctuary is attacked, and the two of them must escape unprepared into the jungle. Caught in the crosshairs of a lethal conflict, they must struggle to keep safe, to eat, and to live.
Follow a dog named Buck through violence and hardship, loyalty and loss, finally finding himself and his home in the Yukon wilderness.
Whatever you do to the animals, you do to yourself. Remember that. At fifteen, Cole Matthews has been fighting and stealing for years. The punishment for his violence is harsh. Cole's choices are prison or living in isolation on a remote Alaskan island for one year. He chooses the isolation but in the first days of his banishment, he is mauled by a mysterious white bear and nearly dies. Will this attack destroy Cole's life or save his soul?
In this unit we will be looking at the impact people have on the environment. Some questions to consider include the following:
~ What is the most significant effect that people have on the environment?
~ Do people always have a negative impact on the environment?
~ Are the needs of people ever more important than the needs of animals and the planet?

In addition to the literature in our textbook, each of you will be reading and responding to one of three novel choices.
