Abstract:

Explorations of Literature Student Text (4th ed.) presents a compilation of stories, poems, and essays from a variety of authors and genres grouped by theme to develop critical thinking skills. Vocabulary glosses explain unfamiliar words within the literature selections. Thinking Zone pages throughout the book ask questions to encourage the student to think about literature in at least four ways: comprehension, interpretation, analysis, and appreciation. In addition to teaching literary terms, these questions also develop the students' abilities to respond biblically to literature. Unit reviews provide additional review questions to prepare students for quizzes and tests. Teach your students to analyze literature in light of God's Word, and give them an enjoyment of literature that they will take with them beyond the classroom. Following each literature piece, Thinking Zones teach literary terms and foster critical thinking through specific questions that require more than mere recall. Students must interpret, analyze, and evaluate what they have read. Unit reviews, using a variety of question types, prepare the student to be successful on unit tests. - Publisher.
