Authors such as Winston Churchill, Hellen Keller, Booker T. Washington, and W.E.B. Du Bois introduce ninth-grade students to the academically invigorating world of classic literature.
About Implications of Literature
Implications of Literature is an academically rigorous high school literature series that features traditional, values-oriented content. These textbooks create coursework that preserves family values while exposing your high school student to excellent short stories, novellas, drama, novels, and biographical and auto-biographical nonfiction. All stories have been chosen to build character in young minds without moralizing.
Implications of Literature texts are designed to build comprehension, critical and analytical skills. 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 includes an introduction to 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.
If you are homeschooling a high schooler and want a literature program that will encourage wholesome values, albeit without religious content, Implications of Literature fills this need with academic excellence and thought-provoking selections. The 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, but if you have two students using the course simultaneously, they may find it most practical and efficient to each have their own student book.

I bought this thinking we'd alternate it with PAC English because I wanted to cover grammar and literature. I quickly realized it wouldn't work for my son because there's so much there. Since we were using World History by Notgrass, we'd have been better off using some of its literature as an informal and occasional supplement to the PAC English.
We have only been using this curriculum for about a week but so far we are already enjoying it! The first story is highly captivating, especially for reading aloud and discussing what we think is going to happen next! We have also been doing the short grammar lessons in the back of the book and working on the Vocabulary list by writing them on notecards. My only complaint is there was no guide given (that I could easily find) to tell you what work to complete for each day. We are reading 5 pages a day and doing 1 grammar lesson a day. I am glad I looked ahead to discover the vocabulary words that would need to be learned by the end of the unit. I also don't see any comprehensive tests, just chapter reviews. This doesn't really matter to me; just a noted observation. Overall, I am looking forward to digging in to this compilation of stories with my 9th grade daughter!
