Christian Reading Companion for 50 Classics by James P. Stobaugh
I love this guide! I honestly think this book should be on the shelf of every homeschooling family - especially if you incorporate literature into your studies. Fifty classics are addressed with a short description of each title, objective and discussion questions (like a mini-quiz) for each book, a list of vocabulary words in their context (quoted right from the book your child is reading), important quotations, and more. I worked through the lesson on Jane Eyre, since I had just finished reading that book (it's a favorite of mine). The lesson, to me, was fun and challenging - and I truly enjoyed it. It wasn't too much - if you know what I mean. Many of the literature programs out there dissect a book SO much, that it robs the student of the enjoyment of the piece of literature. These lessons are short -no twaddle - just the perfect length to help your student get the most out of his reading. I would LOVE to do this as my curriculum for the year if I was a student. Whether supplementing an existing curriculum (like TruthQuest) or doing a special survey course on classic literature, this wonderful guide will help you to incorporate literature into your portfolio. It even includes an answer key!
Here is the book list:
Here is what the publisher has to say: Reading and understanding the classics is important for college preparation, as well as for personal enjoyment. With the Christian Reading Companion for 50 Classics you can gain a deeper understanding of them from a Christian perspective. Selections include books and plays for both middle school and high school levels. Whether supplementing an existing curriculum or doing a special survey course on classic literature, this is a challenging guide which presents:
• Short descriptions of each title
• Objective and discussion questions to stir thought
• Quotations that give insights into character, plot, and more.
The student chapters are in the first part of the volume, and the teacher’s answer keys are available in the back section. The objective test portions are found in each chapter and also offered as a free download for classroom use HERE. This guided analysis is also a helpful introduction to the discussions found in Dr. Stobaugh’s American, British, and World Literature curriculum. Get even more out of your literary experiences with a glossary, brief author biographies, and age-appropriate suggestions for your student. A detailed answer guide helps you turn a love of reading into a credited, educational course that will encourage an appreciation of the written word, develop vocabulary skills, and prompt a deeper interaction with books that are foundational for college-prep activities! 6 x 9 • 304 Pages • Paperback
