Journal Your Thoughts
This Charlotte Mason approach to high school literature combines written narration and vocabulary study with author investigations and basic literary analysis. The book is largely a write-in journal, and emphasizes personal thoughts recorded for various reading selections. For each literature selection, there is an author's investigation page that encourages the student to conduct his own research on the author. Then follows a short literary analysis study that covers theme, characters, plot, setting, style, thesis statement, and summary. The heart of the study is the vocabulary study (word study cards) and written narrations that are expected for each reading assignment listed throughout the selection.
