Publisher Description:

Did you ever wish you didn't have to sort through all the thousands of poems that have been written over the years to find the best of the best? Cheryl Lowe has done the work for you in these new anthologies, including three volumes of British poetry and one volume of American poetry and short stories from the 19th-20th Centuries. These anthologies will be great supplement to your student's literature studies in these time periods.

From the Anglo-Saxon Invasion to the Tudor Accession (449-1485).

The Student Guide contains Reading Notes, Vocabulary Question, Comprehension Questions, and more. The answers are contained in the Teacher Guide.

Study is more involved with these sections: Pre-Grammar (prepare to think about the poem); Grammar/Presentation (discover essential facts, elements, and features of the poem through the reading notes, defining words, and comprehension questions); Logic/Dialectic (sort, arrange, compare, and connect ideas - begin to uncover and determine the Central One Idea); and Rhetoric/Expression (express in own words the Central One Idea with supporting points).

Book includes literature selections to be studied - Seafarer, Caedmons Hymn, Everyman, Sir Patrick Spens, and Robin Hood Ballads, plus others




Category Description for Memoria Press Poetry:

These courses examine poetry studies the way you would expect them to be covered by Memoria Press - excellent selections, classical organization, thorough and user-friendly. Studies at each level include vocabulary studies, analysis, and discussion questions. Student Guides are consumable worktexts; Teacher Guides contain the student exercises with completed answers. Some of the upper-level courses are transitioning student books to smaller-format (6"x 9") books with activities and questions designed to be completed in a separate notebook. Poetry for the Primary Stage is for Grades K-2, Poetry for the Grammar Stage is for Grades 3-7, Poetry & Short Stories: American Literature is for Grades 7 or higher and Poetry Books I-III are for Grades 8 and up.




Category Description for Memoria Press Literature Guides:

Just the right stuff! Thats what youll be thinking as you use this warm and inviting reading program from Memoria Press. The guides are well-organized, user-friendly, academically challenging, and graphically pleasing. Memoria believes that reading is not a passive activity, but that it requires an active, discriminating mind, one that has been challenged to think, compare, and contrast. That philosophy is evident in these guides.

Student Guides are consumable at the lower levels, providing space for the student to write. Each book/story/ poem is approached in much the same way, although with increasing depth. Vocabulary, comprehension/discussion questions, quotations, composition, and miscellaneous literary analysis activities (sequencing, literary terms, dictation, poetry connections, etc.) are covered.

Upper level books (Gr. 2 and up) are organized around the Trivium, and activities are grouped into Pre- Grammar (preparation prior knowledge or experience), Grammar (presentation essential facts, elements, and features), Logic (dialectic reasons with the facts, elements, and features), and Rhetoric (expression explains in own words with supporting details). Although there is consistency from lesson to lesson, there is also an extra activity provided with each lesson, and these are quite varied. Background information on the author and book is included. Several high school level guides have transitioned to Second Editions, which are smaller-format (6"x 9") with a focus on student activities without lined spaces. Students would record their work in a separate notebook.

Teacher Guides provide valuable teaching information and full-text answer keys at all grade levels. Beyond this there are variances within the guides. Discussion talking points, reproducible quizzes and final tests (with answers) are included in numerous guides especially at the upper levels. The first grade program (StoryTime Treasures and More StoryTime Treasures) differs a little bit in content due to the lower grade level. The second-grade level includes pre- and post-reading exercises that focus on continued phonics development, syllabication and vocabulary for the emerging independent reader. For grades 2-9, we are now offering literature guide only packages that include all the student and teacher guides for each grade, no books. ~ Janice

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.
