Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Excursions in Literature (3rd ed.) provides a rich collection of literature selections to help students gain an appreciation and understanding of literary techniques as they study a variety of genres of literature from a range of cultures. Students are encouraged to develop and apply critical thinking skills as they analyze the literature pieces in light of a Christian worldview.

Category Description for Excursions in Literature:

Selections are chosen for teaching moral and literary discernment. More analytical study here, in preparation for the in-depth critical study of literature beginning in grade 9. Quality literature from authors around the world are assembled under the themes of: choices, friends, viewpoints, adventurers, discoveries, and heroes and villains. Teacher's Edition includes a CD with reading quizzes, writing rubrics, additional worksheets, test practice, and more.

Category Description for BJU Press Literature:

Once reading skills are mastered, the Bob Jones reading curriculum becomes one of literature study from a Biblical perspective. Literary constructs and techniques are learned and explored in the context of both Christian and secular literary selections. There is increasing emphasis on the evaluation of literature against a Biblical standard. As in the lower grades, reading selections are carefully chosen and represent a variety of genres at each level. Many of these are excerpts or short stories. Grades 8 and up also include one full-length work as part of the course. In response to requests for more studies of complete works, new Study Guides have been added for The Scarlet Letter and Julius Caesar. These can be used anytime during high school. The Teacher's Editions for these studies contain the full-sized text with marginal notes as well as background information, commentary, discussion and/or essay questions, and project ideas. As the course emphasis at each level is a little different, we've further described individual course contents below. All of the Teacher's Editions contain a complete copy of the student text. In the 9th and 10th grade books, these are full-color with marginal notes and answers. All other grades have the reduced student pages in two-tone, again with marginal notes and answers. It seems like it would be difficult to share the student text - especially during discussion time - but it is possible to do so.

Testpacks include ready-to-use tests. Answers are found in the Testpack Answer Keys. Essential materials that are included in Home School Kits are listed first by grade level, followed by asterisked (*) support materials. Multigrade resources are listed together at the end.
