. . . .One day while lounging on the beach, my beloved husband said, "This is what I want to do everyday. Is it wrong to want to live a life of leisure?" My daughter replied, "Dad, you do live the life of easier." And so we do! Here is a bit from our life of easier.
I know, I know with a name like this you are all running out to buy this exciting book!
What this book lacks in title, it more than makes up for in usefulness. It is written for the public school teacher who needs to addresss multiple levels of abilities while helping students learn to work independently, therefore making it is perfect for a homeschooling mom teaching multiple children-each with different ablilities and levels of independence.
This book is not written to analyze any one book, but rather is full of ideas for projects that will help students learn to think about literary elements. The projects cover many different styles of learning. Students could decorate a CD cover to show the theme of a story, fracture a story to work with point of view, make a flip book with a character's personality traits, scrapbook the story's plot, or write a friendly letter from the viewpoint of a character making sure to describe the setting.
This is a resource that makes literary analyze easy for the busy mom and keeps things fresh for the students.
