A Tale of Two Cities

Charles Dickens

The Boomerang is a monthly digital downloadable product that features copywork and dictation passages from a specific read aloud novel. It is geared toward 8th to 10th graders (ages 12—advanced, 13-15) and is the indispensable tool for Brave Writer parents who want to teach language arts in a natural, literature-bathed context.

This issue comes from the early years of Brave Writer’s Boomerangs so it isn’t quite as robust as more current titles (that’s why the lower price). It’s an oldie but still a goodie!

This guide contains the following features:

  • 4 Passages (one per week) for copywork/dictation
  • Notes about punctuation, spelling, vocabulary, and literary elements
  • 8 Think Piece questions
  • Golden Lines prompt
  • 5 pages
  • Original Publication Date: January 2009

About the book

After being falsely incarcerated for 18 years in the notorious Bastille prison, Dr. Manette returns to England a broken man, but is restored to a semblance of his former self with the aid of his lovely and devoted daughter, Lucie. When father and daughter are later called to testify in a case of treason, Charles Darnay and Sydney Carton enter their lives. Uprisings and twists of fate ensue and readers witness man at his best and worst, right up until the heroic and memorable ending.―Amazon
