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 Explorations in Literature:

Students transition from reading for pleasure to reading for wisdom, in preparation for more analytical study in grade 8. Establishes a Biblical perspective in six unit themes: courage, nature and man, generosity, our land, humility, and family. Students interpret, analyze, and evaluate authors, works, themes, and terms in light of Scripture.




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.
