Kino lives with his wife, Juana, and his son, Coyotito in a small fishing village. One day Kino finds a rare and valuable pearl; he begins to scheme for a better life for himself and his family. Instead, the pearl brings envy and greed to the town, which not only upsets his dreams, but also threatens to destroy Kino's way of life. Steinbeck provides readers with an opportunity to identify and dissect the role that illiteracy plays through Kino’s misfortunes throughout the story.

COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

The Center for Gifted Education (CFGE) is a research and development center providing services to educators, policy makers, graduate students, researchers, and parents in support of the needs of gifted and talented individuals.

Located in Williamsburg, Virginia, the CFGE has established an international reputation for excellence in research, curriculum development, and service. Several major grants, including funding from the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act, have provided significant support for the work of the Center. In 2012, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation awarded CFGE the funds needed for a summer residential camp for low income, high-ability children, for four consecutive years. In 2015, William & Mary alumni, Mike and Nancy Petters, through the Petters Family Foundation, provided additional financial support to the program. In 2016, the Petters Family Foundation has committed to  fully fund the program for the next four years. Camp Launch is only the beginning of the Center for Gifted Education’s goal to bring educational equality to all gifted students.
