Encourage students to think critically and biblically about world literature.
The student text is arranged chronologically with multiple genres of literature integrated throughout the year, including classical works, spiritual literature, poems, church history, and literature. Developed as a "rhetoric-level" course, this curriculum will stretch students' critical thinking skills as they apply their own thoughts to original content.
Chapter-units begin with "first thoughts" from the author as well as chapter objectives. Individual daily lessons include an introduction to the work and author, as well as a list of assignments that include a warm-up, essay instructions, "concept builder" exercises that emphasize vital concepts, assigned readings, and tests. Student essays are also included for students to see how others responded. An evangelical perspective on authors' worldviews, the culture war, and a Christian response to literature, is woven throughout the curriculum. Some short stories and poems are included in-text, while other books must be obtained separately. Works covered include Herodotus' "Histories," Plato's "Republic," Augustine's "Confessions," Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment," Camus' "The Stranger," and more.
