Progeny Press makes earning High School Literature credits easy with high school level study guides such as Perelandra – eGuide. When I saw the opportunity come up to review this product, I was thrilled. I thought my science fiction loving 17-year-old son would possibly love reviewing this product. When looking for literature curriculum, I want products that include Christian values and beliefs. I also prefer literature guides that utilize an entire book, rather than ones with a lot of pieces and parts from different literature choices. I also prefer ones that have lessons plans and involve critical thinking skills. For this review we received the e-guide for Perelandra. This means we received a downloadable study guide along wth the downloadable answer key.
Progeny Press is a Christian company that provides literature study guides and e-guides for Kindergarten through twelfth grade. They offer a variety of selections and choices. The guide we received included activities ranging from vocabulary terms to critical thinking questions to essays and more. I really loved the study guide included vocabulary, reading comprehension, anaylsis and more.
Because I typically prefer to know what my children are studying and learning about, I decided to work through the Perelandra – eGuide myself before having my son start it. While I am very familiar with C.S. Lewis, this series was not one I had really heard of , so I was interested in learning more about it.
I felt like we were at a slight disadvantage because we had not read the first book in the series. So I really wish we could have gone through a study guide for the first book in the series before beginning this one. My recommendation would definitelty be to familiarize yourself with the first book in the series before beginning the guide. For convenience, we decided to download the actual book for Perelandra by C. S. Lewis on our Kindle app so we could take it wherever we happened to be going. I also downloaded the e-guide and the answer keys on my iPad in iBooks so we could travel with it as well.
The guide is meant to be completed in about eight to ten weeks. Since it is summer here in the United States we went at a slightly slower pace. We decided to read the chapter(s) in the book before we worked on the questions in the e-guide. So one day we would read and then we would take the next few days to complete the vocabulary or other questions in the e-guide. I encouraged our son to take his time with the analysis questions. If you have a student who finds answering in-depth analysis questions, you many need to provide extra guidance for your learner.
