Implications of Literature: Pioneer
Implications of Literature: Pioneer, aimed at eleventh-graders, explores American literature in short stories, speeches, poetry, folklore, and much more.
Implications of Literature: Pioneer draws from familiar authors and speakers such as Martin Luther King Jr., Nathaniel Hawthorne, Emily Dickinson, Frederick Douglass, and Charles Lindbergh, along with numerous less familiar sources.
It begins with a quick 16-page review of key historical moments and influences over the last 500 years in America. This will enable students to understand the impact and context history has provided to the American literature we read today.
The activities in Implications of Literature: Pioneer encourage high-school students to sharpen the skills needed for standardized tests and proficiency examinations, especially the clarity of written expression so critical in the newly-formatted SAT examinations.
About Implications of Literature
Implications of Literature is an academically rigorous high school literature series that features traditional, values-oriented content.
The textbooks create coursework that preserves family values while exposing your high school student to excellent literature. Short stories, novellas, drama, novels, and biographical and auto-biographical nonfiction have been chosen to build character in young minds without moralizing.
Implications of Literature texts are designed to build comprehension, critical and analytical skills. Informal quizzes, textual sidebars, literary critiques, writing assignments, journaling, grammar, and vocabulary are just a few of Implications of Literature's innovative features.
The student text introduces each genre, with vocabulary clearly explained in footers on nearly every page. The teacher's text includes all of the content of the student text with helpful annotations and suggested answers for assignments.
Implications of Literature is for the homeschooling family who wants a literature program that will encourage wholesome values, albeit without religious content. With academic excellence and thought-provoking selections, these stories, while not religious, still reflect good precepts and are free of material that would conflict with Christian values.
The Implications of Literature student book is not consumable. Occasional questions appear throughout the text, but these are best answered on a separate paper. Families may choose to have students share student books. If you have two students using the course simultaneously, it may be more practical and efficient to purchase an additional student book.
