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.
