This is the Complete Study Guide for Black Ships Before Troy, Rosemary Sutcliff’s retelling of the Iliad. It includes comprehension and discussion/essay questions at the front for the student and questions and answers at the back for the teacher. It also includes character and place indexing, and map work. If you only want to purchase a single study guide for your family, this is the one to buy. Students can use the front section of the book to answer the questions. Parents can use the back section of the book to grade student work and to initiate discussions.
Use time-proven literature adaptations alongside level-specific guides to study classical literature. The ancient classics become accessible with such favorites as Aeneid for Boys and Girls, Rosemary Sutcliff’s Black Ships Before Troy and The Wanderings of Odysseus, or D’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths, and more. Each guide follows a pattern: read a book chapter, examine characters, complete map work, and then students either write out comprehension answers in a chosen workbook, a notebook, or answer verbally. Tailor your workbook choice to your student. Relaxed (also called A) workbooks are simple format, with short answers and a minimal list of main characters and map tasks. The Studious level (B) will write out comprehension answers, learn main and minor characters, and add more map tasks. The Scholarly level (C) includes all material in previous levels, including every character and place mentioned (although the author does not expect 100% retention). This level also adds comprehension and discussion questions that flesh out characters and concepts, while stressing Biblical application.
The Answer Key includes all answers for comprehension and discussion questions, as well as character and mapping lists. The most economical way to use the program is to get the novel and the Answer Key, with all work done orally. The Key is handy with multiple student levels. The Complete Guideincludes the questions in the front for students, so they wouldn't need the workbook (they can write in a notebook or answer orally), and questions and answers are at the back. ~ Ruth
Please note that a brief synopsis of many of the books included here are provided in our Library Builders section. Study guides for the same book are often available from several publishers, so we found it more efficient to give a description of the book only once.
