Bountiful Blessings from the Bookshelf

/ / Blog, Schoolhouse Teachers


Have you ever stopped to think about the blessings that can be obtained through reading amazing books? We have. That’s why we have so many literature classes and reading lists available. Take African American Literature, for instance. This is an eighteen-week advanced high school literature course taught by Bethanie Frank in which she explores the literary traditions of African American literature through poetry, short stories, essays, drama, journals, and other written forms. Students engage in a variety of learning through various audio/visual resources and multi-media technologies designed to cultivate an understanding of the themes of African American literature. All of the children in your family can enjoy Children’s Literature for Life as they explore classic children’s books, including Carry On, Mr. Bowditch, Mama’s Bank Account, and Strawberry Girl. Unit studies designed by Fran May include literature, writing, history, geography, and science, as well as supplemental Bible and art activities.
