General Description

Not only does Johnny Tremain teach students about the Revolutionary War, it also teaches them about character development, both in literature and in life. Johnny Tremain begins the story as a gifted, prideful silversmith. He ends the story still essentially himself, but having grown and matured. As Johnny encounters the faces and foundations of the revolution, readers put themselves in his place, considering how they would act in our nation's fight for freedom.
