Blackbeard The Pirate Book

This activity is written in Learning Magic’s Text and Graphics Click to Read template. In this template, the child is presented with a graphic and a text box with one to three paragraphs of information regarding the subject, and that page is then followed by a page with a multiple choice question to ascertain the student’s comprehension of the previously read materials.

The child has the ability to go back and re-read the section if desired. Also a child needing extra support can click on the text box and the text will be read aloud to him or her. Behind the scenes we are capturing all their responses and automatically generating a graded report through the IntelliPics Studio 3® portfolio management and reporting system.

The activity recounts the life of Edward Teach, aka “Blackbeard”, one of the most notorious pirates of all, who preyed upon merchant ships in both the Caribbean and along the southeastern shorelines of the United States in the early 1700s.

In his heyday, he had over 2,500 pirates working with him, and he commanded a fleet of twenty-five ships. The activity details his appearance and exploits, including battling a British warship and subsequently getting pardoned. Unfortunately, he went back to his pirating ways and ended up losing his life in a terrific battle.

The activity can be run on the IntelliTools Classroom Suite Player. But IntelliPics Studio 3® is needed to perform data capture, automatic grading and portfolio management, as well as any editing or changes to the activity itself.

Applications needed: IntelliTools Classroom Suite®, IntelliTools Classroom Suite Player®, or IntelliPics Studio 3®.
