Progeny Press study guide for the novel Across Five Aprils. My daughter had listened to and enjoyed a recording of this historical novel awhile back, and I thought this study guide would be a great way for us to review the Civil War. It's at a middle school level so I thought it would be appropriate for her. After I had a chance to look at it, though, I realized it is too advanced for her special needs. It requires a higher level of critical thinking than she is ready for. So I will set it aside for now and perhaps use it with her later.
It does offer a very thorough study of the novel with a wide variety of activities such as literary analysis, vocabulary development, map activities, and writing assignments. I especially appreciated the Biblical perspective and character training that is woven throughout.
I had used a Progeny Press guide several years again in teaching a co-op class and found that it worked very well for that setting. At that time they were only available in paper format (with permission to make copies for classroom use). Now they are available as a downloadable PDF or on a CD as well as a paper option. The digital format is interactive and allows the student to type the answers right into the study guide without having to print it out. The printed option is $18.99 or the digital options are $16.99.
I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review as a member of the TOS Homeschool Crew.
