Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Explorations of Literature Student Text (4th ed.) presents a compilation of stories, poems, and essays from a variety of authors and genres grouped by theme to develop critical thinking skills. Vocabulary glosses explain unfamiliar words within the literature selections. Thinking Zone pages throughout the book ask questions to encourage the student to think about literature in at least four ways: comprehension, interpretation, analysis, and appreciation. In addition to teaching literary terms, these questions also develop the students' abilities to respond biblically to literature. Unit reviews provide additional review questions to prepare students for quizzes and tests.Teach your students to analyze literature in light of God's Word, and give them an enjoyment of literature that they will take with them beyond the classroom. Following each literature piece, Thinking Zones teach literary terms and foster critical thinking through specific questions that require more than mere recall. Students must interpret, analyze, and evaluate what they have read. Unit reviews, using a variety of question types, prepare the student to be successful on unit tests.
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.




Category Description for BJU Press Curriculum:

We are pleased to be able to distribute BJU Press curriculum to our customers. Most homeschoolers are already familiar with their materials. For those who are not, BJU is a Christian university located in South Carolina that produces and markets curriculum materials for Christian schools as well as home schools. Probably the most homeschool-friendly full-curriculum supplier, they have not only accommodated homeschoolers, but have continually worked to make their materials better suited to the homeschooling family. Many of their courses now contain manuals written specifically for the home school setting, and visuals and supplemental materials have been "pared down" from the bulkier visuals still used in classrooms. While other curriculum suppliers initially frowned on distributing teacher materials to homeschoolers, and provided only expensive classroom versions, Bob Jones quickly embraced homeschoolers, readily allowing them access to teacher's editions and, eventually, producing less expensive spiral-bound or paperbound versions to save money for homeschooling families. Their materials are all top quality. They are professionally prepared, educationally sound, and Biblically-based. Used in Christian school classrooms across the country for years and constantly improved, they are courses you can trust in your homeschool as well. We have long been fans of Bob Jones curriculum materials, having used courses in almost every subject area for one child or another through the years. In our particular situation (seven children, Mom and Dad sharing in teaching as well as in running Rainbow Resource Center), a well-constructed, teacher-ready course can be a God-send. Although we have used a variety of methods and curriculums in our homeschool through the years (and continue to do so), we strongly feel that the Bob Jones materials we have used have helped to produce excellent, college-ready students. Unless you have a particularly strong aversion to textbooks of any kind, at any level, we highly recommend these materials to you.

Curriculum can be found by subject area in our catalog; see index for page numbers. A free scope and sequence is available below, with specific information by grade level.

Is this a year-long course or a semester course?
A shopper on Jul 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Bob Jones literature courses are technically one semester and are coupled with their English courses (grammar and writing) which are likewise one semester. Alternatively, you could work on both courses simultaneously throughout one year.
