Literature in Context Guides

All > Reading / Literature > STUDY GUIDES & BOOKS > Literature in Context Guides

This series is intended for the development of student's appreciation of literature and the enrichment of their understanding of its historical context. This goal is accomplished while improving reading skills, expanding vocabulary, and learning to appreciate a variety of writing styles.

Each guide is written to supplement the reading of a particular book and should be used by students reading at or above the grade indicated next to the title, and they can be used with any unabridged version of the book. Guides are divided into chapter sections which vary from book to book. For each section students will do three types of exercises. The first exercise is reading comprehension and offers fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, and matching questions. This exercise will help students recall details, pick out main ideas or themes, make inferences, and draw conclusions. The second exercise is vocabulary, which covers new words or new forms of familiar words found within the context. The third type of exercise is titled "Stop & Think." The questions in this section encourage a student to think more critically as they summarize, explain, discuss, look at the historic context, and receive an opportunity for creative response. After completing the book, there is a section of questions called "Reviewing the Story." These are open-ended exercises which ask students to review plot and characters, recall themes, and do comparison to other literary works. Author information and historical setting is found at the front of the book, and writing and discussion activities are used to reinforce this information. Answer keys and suggested responses are included. In summary, this series is fairly straightforward, easy to use, and offers an affordable study opportunity for a variety of books. Reproducible for family or classroom use, the books vary in length. ~ Donna
