Product Description

The Worldview Detective course from the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) will help your students analyze authors' worldviews and learn to discern truth in literature. Featuring live discussions of works by Jack London and Flannery O'Conner, as well as a list of 113 discussion questions to help readers analyze every book, this course teaches a method for analyzing literature that you can apply to any book!

This course includes both four DVDs (3 hour presentation) along with a teacher's manual designed to supplement the DVDs. This manual includes the complete text of London's To Build a Fire, a revised & expanded Socratic List of discussion questions, discussion questions and answers for the stories in the DVD, summaries of major literary periods and common worldviews, an explanation and warning about "Christian deconstruction," and more.

Four DVDs feature:

  • Step-by-step techniques for "detecting" an author's worldview through close reading

  • Worldview analyses of works by Jack London and Flannery O'Connor
  • Detailed instructions for applying a Christian worldview to any book
  • A revised and expanded Socratic List for worldview analysis, including live explanations and guidance for each question
  • Explanations of important terms like worldview, deconstruction, naturalism, realism, romanticism, modernism and more
  • Summaries of major literary periods and common worldviews
  • Live demonstrations of CenterForLit's famous Socratic teaching technique
  • DVD presentations feature both Adam and Missy Andrews in a Socratic discussion setting that models our instructional techniques.

This kit includes:

  • 4-DVD Presentation
  • Teacher's Manual, 70 pages, spiralbound, softcover. Non-reproducible, so for co-ops and small groups, each teacher/parent/student must purchase his or her own teacher's manual.
