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.
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.
