Designed as a supplement to an English course or as a guide for teachers, this overview of fifty classics provides a quick and simple way to go beyond just 'reading.' Each book title's chapter includes a short description of the book, 'objective questions' that test basic recall of facts & plot points, vocabulary gleanings from the text, and discussion questions. A wide range of classics were chosen, including Agamemnon, Black Beauty, David Copperfield, The Faerie Queene, Jane Eyre, Les Miserables, My Antonia, A Raising in the Sun, Up from Slavery, Walden, Watership Down, and others. Arranged alphabetically, the books are grouped by age in the back. Answer key included. 293 pages, softcover. Middle School-early High School.
