New Second Edition, Perfect Bound- Hewitt's Lightning Literature and Composition guides use full-length novels, autobiographies, plays, essays, short stories, and poems to teach deep reading and composition skills. Unlike some literature programs that take a scatter-shot approach (where none of the literature seems connected) or that try to dump too much into one book, Lightning Literature guides focus on a few classics in depth, in a systematic manner. These guides are available for junior high and high school. Students read in the following order: ·C. S. Lewis (nonfiction: The Four Loves) ·George MacDonald (novel: selections [text in this Guide] from Phantastes: A Faerie Romance) ·Gerard Manley Hopkins (poetry [text in this Guide]: "Heaven-Haven," "Easter Communion," "Pied Beauty," "Carrion Comfort") ·D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (nonfiction: Why Does God Allow War?) ·Amy Carmichael (nonfiction: selections [text in this Guide] from Gold Cord) ·G. K. Chesterton (nonfiction: Orthodoxy) ·T. S. Eliot (essay [text on the Internet]: "Tradition and the Individual Talent") ·Dorothy L. Sayers (novel: Gaudy Night) All works are by Christian authors; works are a mixture of literature on specifically Christian ideas and literature on more general themes. Lessons cover writing a basic five-paragraph essay; communicating through a variety of forms; imagery, syntax, and word choice in poetry; writing clearly; writing for different purposes; persuasive writing; literary analysis; and choosing subject matter. For example, The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis is used to teach writing the five-paragraph essay, Phantastes by MacDonald for teaching symbolism, and Why Does God Allow War? by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones for writing clearly. Free Teacher's Guide is included with answers and schedules.
