Literature Study Guides in Ebook .pdf format to accompany The Chronicles of Narnia…for HIGH SCHOOLERS

The Chronicles of Narnia Literature Guides

C.S. Lewis’ delightful Narnia is not just for kids! Homeschooling high schoolers should revisit these great books in order to study the theological and philosophical concepts he imbedded in the stories. These downloadable study guides provide direction for a rich reading experience with no busy-work.

Building reading COMPREHENSION is an important part of the early years of education, but it’s easy to get stuck there and miss the richer, deeper types of understanding that can be drawn from literature.

Literature Study Guides from 7Sisters are designed to gently direct readers to these deeper levels of understanding without killing the experience with busy-work. Equip your child to read for:

* INTERPRETATION, understanding it IN LIGHT OF her individual beliefs.

* INFERENCE, reaching conclusions based on the information read.

* EVALUATION, intelligently determining the worth of the written material.

* OBSERVATION, making a careful, analytical notes as to the many elements that comprise a piece of writing. Observational reading is sort of like making sure you see the trees instead of just the forest.

* APPRECIATION, grasping the worth of the text on a personal, perhaps somewhat indefinable level.

* ENJOYMENT, finding actual satisfaction in the reading experience.

All readers lean naturally toward some of these seven ways, and some others need instruction, direction, and encouragement in order to cultivate a really well-rounded ability with understanding written words.

Here are my video thoughts on teaching literature to teenagers.
