In The Scarlet Letter Student Book, students are guided to read and think through the grammar, logic, and rhetoric stages towards the essence of a story: the central proposition that gives the story its ultimate meaning and expression. Literary and rhetorical devices presented in bold to prepare students for sophisticated literary analysis and/or future work in AP Literature and college classes.
The Scarlet Letter Student Book contains vocabulary studies, reading notes, comprehension questions, Socratic discussion questions, work with quotes, and literary and rhetorical devices. The Scarlet Letter Student Book is designed to guide students through the grammar, logic, and rhetoric stages towards the central proposition that gives the story ultimate meaning and expression. Upper-School Student books are now in a smaller, non-consumable format. The format of these guides helps older students transition away from a workbook mentality and prepares them for college classes by teaching them to take their own notes and glean information from lectures, class discussions, and the text.
