The Gold Book - World Literature and its companion, A World Literature Anthology, are complete curricula for high school world literature language arts. Carefully selected poems, short stories, novels, and other writings from long ago and far away are included to represent as many different cultures as possible. Using A World Literature Anthology published by Common Sense Press, students will read several works in their entirety as well as excerpts from many others. A necessary component to The Gold Book - World Literature, A World Literature Anthology is also a valuable tool for any world history course.

The Gold Book series is designed to encourage the high school student's ability to interpret and access literary meaning in terms of content and philosophy and clearly state a position in response.

The 3rd edition Learning Language Arts Through Literature - The Gold Book - World offers easy-to-use instructions for student and teacher. Novel summaries, answers, and more helps are in the Teacher Section in the back of the book.

In The Gold Book - World Literature you will find:

Unit 1 - Early Literature

Unit 2 - Epic Poetry

Unit 3 - Medieval-Renaissance

Unit 4 - Enlightenment-Romanticism

Unit 5 - 20th Century

Ancient Literature Study introduces the student to world literature through the earliest recorded writings, many of which began as oral tradition. These include fables, myths, fairytales, folktales, and parables as well as poetry and sacred texts of ancient cultures.

Epic Study introduces the student to heroic stories from seven different cultures spanning hundreds of years. Students will be able to identify the elements that make up epic literature and will apply this knowledge to writing their own epic stories. Guided by thought-provoking questions, the student will compare and contrast these epics by analyzing characters and identifying qualities valued by each culture.

Novel Study takes an in-depth look at three classic works of literature from ancient times to modern. The student will learn to interpret literature and formulate an opinion of each novel. In addition to reading these full length books, students will be introduced to many books through an "over-view" of the work giving a broad foundation from which to expand their learning.

Poetry Study includes the poetry of ancient Greece and Rome, poetry from Egypt, Japan, China, the Middle East, and the European sonnet. Students will thoroughly review meter, rhyme scheme, and literary terms.

Play Study leads the student in reading two full length plays - Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and a comedy of manners play, "The Importance of Being Earnest."

Short Stories Study allows the student to explore plot lines, characters, settings, and themes of nine short stories from France, America, England, Russia, Canada, and New Zealand. Students will be given the opportunity to write a summary detailing what they have read.

Teacher's Guide and Answers are located in the back of the book.

"Its just common sense!" Yes, everything about this program is common sense. A very complete program organized around quality children's literature and covering phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, handwriting, and higher-order reasoning. Phonics instruction is systematic, introducing a few sounds at a time and providing opportunities to read a "real" (small story book) book which uses those sounds. The literature component (carefully selected children's favorites) reminds students that the reason for all the hard work in phonics is the joy of reading wonderful books. And woven through both of these elements is comprehensive instruction in all aspects of language arts. Relying heavily on Ruth Beechick's principles for teaching reading (including her letter dice activities), the program includes a wide variety of activities appealing to all learning styles.

The current 3rd edition features updated covers and clearer day-by-day instruction; there are also updates throughout the series to reflect changes in how research is conducted. Also, there is clearer direction for making personalized spelling lists. Some lessons have been "switched-out" to give students exposure to more classic literature. Since the original series was written over several years by two different authors, this 3rd edition has been tweaked to make it more consistent. A few out-of-print books have been replaced as well.

The Teacher Book is a homeschooler's dream; all the work has been done for you, taking you step-by-step through the 36-week/36 Lesson program. The Lessons are grouped into "Parts" and each is divided into five days of detailed instructions. New skills are listed for each lesson and necessary supplies are included at the beginning. There is virtually no teacher preparation needed; you teach as you read. All answers are provided within the lesson. Examples and diagrams are user-friendly including the easy-to-follow references to the Student Book. Periodic assessments are provided to help you determine your childs readiness for the next "Part." The Student Book contains the materials (except for household and school supplies) needed for cut-and-paste, word wheels, flip books, picture sequencing, story-telling puppets, and handwriting pages. The comfortable, natural handwriting method that isnt exactly traditional, modern, or italic was developed by the authors. This handwriting instruction is coordinated with the phonics and includes pages for children to carefully complete and display or give as gifts. The Student Book is consumable with perforated pages. Even the back cover is put to good use providing the miniature book covers to be added to the personal reading chart that marks the childs progress. Phonics concepts are reinforced in separate beginning Readers. They are small-sized for little hands and include black-and-white illustrations. Stories are engaging which is a good thing since the weeks learning activities are built around them. The student uses puppets to retell the stories, completes sequencing activities with a series of reader-related events, and answers comprehension questions. One interesting aspect of the teacher-student interaction concerning these readers is that the weeks lesson starts off with the teacher reading either the small book (Blue) or a part of a reader (Red) to the child. After several lessons thoroughly covering the new phonics concepts and practice reading parts of the story, the student concludes the week with the successful reading of the same reading selection. This is an effective variation of the typical approach because the goal of reading the book is always before the student. The Materials Packet (Blue Program only) is a useful collection of color-coded letter and word cards for learning and review along with cards used for reinforcement games and, of course, the letter dice (to be assembled from cardstock patterns). While this part of the program is not exactly consumable - you could use the various components again - the components do get a workout. If you are expecting to use the program with another child, you'll want to save these items, possibly laminating them. However, we sell additional Material Packets as well as Student Books and Reader Sets so you can easily use the program with a second student. Well-known children's literature (Read-Aloud Library) is suggested each week, so at the same time your child is learning phonics, he is also learning other important reading skills such as literal recall, comprehension, predicting outcome, and drawing conclusions. These books are an integral part of the program and the Student Activity Book relies on them. Although usually available at the local library, for your convenience we also sell them. ~ Janice

I am piecing together my son's 10th grade curriculum and will be using this resource for the short story section.
wendy k on Jul 11, 2021
We have used Learning Language Arts Through Literature for many years and love the program. It is a great fit for my daughter who has difficulty with Language Arts in general. She is doing so well now in Langauge Arts that she has been able to do very well in dual-enrollment college courses, which she started this past year in 11th grade. We were concerned about how she would do with written assignments on the college level, but this program has prepared her so well, she did great!

This will nicely supplement some Time4Learning my son is using for English. Working part-time, leaves little time for me to prepare for classes. This was highly recommended by another home school Mom.
Rebecca T on Sep 22, 2019
I watched a review that stated that this curriculum was excellent for preparing high school students for college literary analysis.
Stephanie K on Jul 22, 2019
I have used and loved LLATL for years. I look forward to my younger children getting some good literature in their senior year of high school. I would have liked this for my older children who finished the books early and needed something more!
Kathy R on Nov 16, 2018
This looks like a great program for my HS Senior to study World Literature.
Apryll W on Oct 8, 2018
This is a very good program and I am using much of it for World Lit with my 10th grade daughter. We will be reading more than what the book suggests. In several cases, we will be reading the complete novel or play rather than just a passage. Overall it is a good curriculum.

used the other two for high school and was impressed with scope and quality of work
Amy R on Jul 18, 2018
It seemed to be more of what we were looking for.

We have used LATL for years and love it. This is the first year to use this one. My daughter is excited to learn all it has to offer.
Malissa K on Sep 4, 2017
I needed to try something new to help my children learn to analyze literature and write about it. I heard positive reports about this series many years ago and thought I'd try it.

I have used LLATL in the past. It's thorough and good quality content. I plan to use as a literature elective for my hs student."

How many lessons does this contain?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2021
BEST ANSWER: 36 Lessons spread between five different units: early literature, epic poetry, medieval renaissance, enlightenment romanticism, 20th century.

Please note that the textbook information says that each LESSON consists of a 5-day week so this book is intended to be covered over the course of 36 weeks.

You will want to make sure that you buy the world literature anthology Book also because some of the stories that they reference, while in the public domain, we found very challenging to find on the internet. It took him so long to sort through the piecemeal accounts that he found that we just went ahead and made a separate purchase for the anthology Book.
Does this curriculum include an answer key?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The Gold Book, World Literature does have the answers to the questions that are asked in each week's lessons. They are at the back of the book. If you also buy the Course Notes and Tests, it comes with the Test Answer Keys. It is a separate book.
Is this the new 3rd edition?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: LLATL Gold - World Literature is technically a first edition as it only came out within the last few years. It was not revised with the latest edition of LLATL so it is a first and only edition. That is true of all the LLATL Gold courses. They were not revised when the 1-8th grade courses were revised. Grades 1-8 are in their third edition.
