Master Books British Literature: Cultural Influences of Early to Contemporary Voices, Student Book

Encourage students to think critically and biblically about British literature.

Arranged chronologically, multiple genres of literature are integrated throughout the year, including poems, short stories, 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 The Canterbury Tales, Dr. Faustus, The Vicar of Wakefield, A Tale of Two Cities, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Lord Jim, Mere Christianity, and The Lord of the Rings.

British Literature is a 34 week program. Weekly chapters include 5 daily lessons (45-60 minutes each). High School level. 472 pages, softcover.

"History Connections" provide links between this curriculum and James Stobaugh's history curriculum. The history curriculum is not required to use this curriculum.

For a list of required literature needed to use this course, please see the More Information PDF.

Let me first say I am not sure how to review a book I barely comprehend. If it weren't for the teacher's guide I would be lost. That said, I am way impressed. I plan to use this with Boogerhead in high school.
The books title explains what it is about...British Literature. This one year course counts as two credits and is very in depth. The additional resource books or poems they recommend , I found free online. There are plenty of assignments to make sure your students understand the material. Hopefully, with the teacher's guide you will too.
The student book is awesome. There are assignments after each reading to ensure that the student is "getting it". The teacher's guide is just a blessing. Without it I wouldn't understand a thing! There are tests, essays, and a section on what the student will need each day. I love the layout and ease of use.
