Perhaps most crucial, Dr. Stobaugh scrutinizes all literature from a Christian Worldview. At the same time, the public speaking helps, writing helps, and thinking helps join forces to empower students to be effective Christian apologists. In the steps of Augustine, Milton, and Lewis, Dr. Stobaugh invites students to analyze the classics with a keen, discerning eye to identify positive and negative components of literary worldviews emergent among the classics. This student-directed course offers supportive distance learning, a teaching DVD, and an informative webinar, so a student can successfully complete this course on his own, if the parent/teacher desires. Teaching plans provide assessment goals and evaluation tools to determine your student's progress. While the course is flexible enough for any student, Dr. Stobaugh includes a track designed specifically to assure that special-needs learners gain the maximum possible benefit from this study. In short, this course assures that all students are successful!
We recommend pairing our Skills for Literary Analysis with our Literary Analysis 8-10-minute Concept Builders and Warm-ups to reinforce weekly skills. Concept Builders use different critical thinking activities to highlight the most important concepts. Warm-ups invite students to write a stimulating, skill- reinforcing essay every day. Weekly, students can join a support class online, and, if the parents wish, can have their essays graded by Dr. Stobaugh himself!
Without a doubt, Skills for Literary Analysis resources equip every student for the exciting academic days that lay ahead!
