Students will read hundreds of pieces during their academic careers, and thousands over the course of their lifetime. Equip them to analyze classic genres, discern authorial worldviews, and learn to apply biblical standards to every area of life with James Stobaugh's Skills for Literary Analysis student & teacher pack!
Emphasizing the importance of evaluating worldview, assignments often ask students to evaluate the perspectives of the characters and authors in the writing. Students will also study and analyze literary elements such as plot, setting, characters, writing style, allegory, dialogue, and other components of excellent writing.
Thirty-four weekly chapters include four lessons each (45-60 minutes) in the Student Book with objectives and concept-building exercises; a writing assignment is due at the end of the week, which students are encouraged to polish for inclusion in a final portfolio. Daily "concept builders" emphasize a concept important to the chapter topic through graphic organizers and reading exercises. Students are also encouraged to write in a prayer journal each day, to create vocabulary cards for challenging words, and discuss the week's literary term with parents/educators. NIV Scripture used. With all assignments completed, this course equals 1 writing and 1 literature credit. 381 pages, softcover. Junior High: Grades 7-8.

The Teacher's Guide includes a reproduced student text with the correct answers inserted. Chapter tests and a chart for recording essay grades is also included. Pages are loose-leaf and three-hole-punched.
