Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Active reading and thinking leads to a life-affecting experience with literature and poetry"forms that perhaps, paradoxically, convey the most truth about humans and their place in the world. Our upper-school Literature Guides train students to read actively and lead students through a four-stage trivium-based continuum to the acquisition and expression of the Central One Idea. Students are guided to read and think through the pre-grammar, grammar, logic, and rhetoric stages toward the essence of the story, the central proposition that gives the story its greatest meaning and expression. The guides feature helpful reading notes for background information and difficult words, extensive vocabulary training, comprehension questions, Socratic discussion questions, interaction with salient quotes, and literary and rhetorical devices presented in bold-face to prepare students for sophisticated literary analysis and future study"and these for the nuanced reflection of the complex simplicity of life.

Category Description for STUDY GUIDES & BOOKS:

Please note that a brief synopsis of many of the books included here areprovided in our Library Builders section. Study guides for the samebook are often available from several publishers, so we found it more efficientto give a description of the book only once.




Category Description for Memoria Press Literature:

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 and discussion questions, quotations, composition, and miscellaneous literary analysis activities (sequencing, literary terms, dictation, poetry connections, etc.). 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

Advanced but still very helpful
Well thought out,really draws out the author’s intents in writing. Some of Student Guide text is hard to understand, like it’s written for people getting their Master’s degree in British Lit.
