No matter what your opinion about "good literature", this course will work for you, since it doesn't tell you what beautiful literature is, but rather teaches how to think with the skills of observation, deduction and evaluation. Students will use the Socratic Method of learning as they examine the five elements of literature: plot, conflict, setting, character and theme. Graphic organizers, book lists, discussion questions, excerpts and other materials are included in the workbook.

The included 4-DVD set contains the instructional seminars that show students how to apply elements described in the text to literature. Concepts covered include preparing for literary analysis, plot & conflict, setting, character, theme and practice/scope & sequence. Elementary-high school.

This kit includes:

  • 97-page workbook, softcover, spiral-bound.
  • 4 DVDs in plastic case.

    Memorization has fallen out of favor, despite the proven benefit of installing a "database...of reliably correct and sophisticated language patterns." Students gain increased vocabulary, idiomatic understanding, and an intuitive use of language patterns when they are accustomed to committing works of poetry to memory. The mastery system is employed to help retain memorization of works, with poems recited every day until they are perfected and afterwards to prevent memory losses. Poems are included in level of difficulty to memorize, and students will work their way up to memorizing increasingly complicated pieces. Poems are included and arranged by level in the workbook. The CD set includes 3 audio CDs with all poems read by Andrew Pudewa, and is designed to help students memorize the poems quickly and accurately. A DVD "Nurturing Competent Communicators" is also included.
