Ready Readers: High School Literature, Vol. 1

Ready Readers: High School Literature, Volume I  includes 5 thought-provoking Socratic discussions from the text with comprehensive questions and answers at the high school level. Questions cover Conflict, Plot, Setting, Characters, Theme, Literary Devices, and Context.  In addition, a completed Story Chart graphically outlines the major structural and thematic elements of each story.

Our new cover design displays the beautiful artwork of J. Renee Illustration. Jessica Johnson took her inspiration from the pages of The Great Divorce,and just as the brilliant little, red tour bus stands out as something solid and real in Lewis' ghostly world, we believe Socratic discussions such as those found in this book's pages will bring students face-to-face with ideas that will clothe them in Solid Flesh.

 This resource is appropriate for use with students in grades 9 and up, depending on their needs:


Ready Readers: High School Literature helps develop good reading comprehension in high school level students.  It encourages them to ponder well-designed questions about structure, style, context, and theme in every story they read.


The books discussed here were written with an adult audience in mind. The stories discussed in this particular Ready Readers are most appropriate for students already familiar with the basics of the Teaching the Classics method.
