Illuminating Literature Volume 2: Characters in Crisis
Prepare your teens for college literature courses and for the rest of their reading life with the very user-friendly and non-intimidating Illuminating Literature. Your teen will be asked to read 13 books or short stories, all based on a cohesive theme of characters in crisis. Some of the stories are in the book, some stories have a link included in the book, and some stories are not included (although they would be easy to check out from a library).
Illuminating Literature begins each novel’s analysis by first introducing teens to the book and providing helpful background information about the book itself. The tone of the student guide is conversational and occasionally humorous, perfect for any teen who might be intimidated by the task of completing 13 stories.
By the conclusion of Illuminating Literature, your teen will have studied dozens of literary terms and examples contained in these books and will have developed more of an appreciation for great literature.
This set includes 3 books: Student Book, Teacher's Guide, and Quiz & Answer Manual.
