Chronicles of Narnia Literature Study Guide #7: The Last Battle for High Schoolers

C.S. Lewis' delightful Chronicles of Narnia is not just for kids! Homeschooling high schoolers should revisit The Last Battle in order to study the theological and philosophical concepts he imbedded in the stories.

Teens will join King Tirian and the Narnian kings and queens in learning about apocalyptic literature and Plato's theories. They will learn to catch religious and philosophic symbolism, thus becoming better thinkers and do-ers.

As always, 7 Sisters' Literature Study Guides contain NO busywork- just the important take-aways from each book. In Literature Study Guide: The Last Battle, homeschooling teens will gain experience in inferential and critical thinking skills. They will build richness in their knowledge and understanding of their relationship with God. They will gain understanding of the basic philosophic concepts that drive our western culture. AND they will come to understand C.S. Lewis' life and world.

These study guides are adaptable to various high school levels (average high school, college prep, advanced, honors). Homeschoolers who wish to "level up" to an advanced or honors will have the opportunity to develop their own "Narnian-style" subcreation (backstory) as they work through the study guides. (A recommended add-on for fun would be Advanced Guide to High School Writing: Myth-Fantasy Story, which will help your teen construct a story following the format the Lewis employed.)

These study guides are presented in order of publication:

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Prince Caspian

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

The Silver Chair

The Horse and His Boy

The Magician's Nephew

The Last Battle

These study guides are also available in one volume: The Chronicles of Narnia Study Guides: the Complete Set for High Schoolers

This study guide comes complete with explanation of the theological or philosophical ideas in the text, myth-fantasy writing tips, vocabulary, questions for each chapter, and answer key. Lots of great information but no OVERKILL that would take the joy out of experiencing the book.

No one outgrows The Chronicles of Narnia! High school is the perfect time to revisit them!

Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective

Why do you need a Psychology curriculum for high school?

Here are three reasons:

1) Social Science courses help create the well-rounded transcript colleges seek.
2) Most college majors require Psychology. It is good to have a Christian foundation in psychology particularly before experiencing it at college (perhaps secular) level.
3) It is wonderful to grasp an understanding of God’s wonderful creation of our mind and personality.

Vicki Tillman MA (a homeschooling mom and practicing licensed professional counselor), wrote this fun and comprehensive text from a Christian worldview so that students can appreciate God’s handiwork and also be prepared for college settings.

The topics in the fifteen chapters of this Psychology curriculum for high school cover:

-The Brain and How it Works
-Perception
-Genetics
-Learning
-History of Psychology (Ancient to Pre-modern Times )
-History of Psychology into Modern Times
-Communication
-Needs and Motivation
-Looking at Personality & Theory
-Sleep & Dreams
-Abnormal Psychology
-Psychological Testing
-Christian Counseling
-Careers in Psychology
-How to Help a Friend in Crisis

This attractive etext includes:

-new words and key concepts in sidebars
-comprehension questions for each chapter

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH Literature Study Guide

This study guide by Sabrina Justison will enhance your child's understanding and enjoyment of Newbery Medal winner Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O'Brien. It includes vocabulary, comprehension questions for each chapter, and Going Deeper questions for more mature students. The book and study guide are geared to 3rd through 8th grade and can be adjusted for different age groups.

For younger children, the comprehension questions for each chapter help them maintain focus on the plot line, keep characters straight in their minds, and anticipate possible twists and turns in the story.

For older students (6th-8th graders, perhaps), this book offers a great introduction to the concept of PERSPECTIVE.  Going Deeper questions help them note the varying literal perspectives in the story (visually speaking), the different points of view of different characters, and the developing and changing perspectives of individual characters as the story progresses.

Republic of Plato Study Guide

Written to accompany ancient Greek philosopher Plato’s app. 380 BC Socratic dialogue, this 13-page literature study guide by Sabrina Justison helps you get the most out of Republic of Plato Parts I & II.. Literature study guides from 7SistersHomeschool.com inspire students rather than tire them with busywork that kills the story.

A note from Sabrina Justison, author of this high school literature study guide for the Republic of Plato:

While you may use any translation of Plato's Republic, this study guide was created using Francis MacDonald Cornford's translation.  This Study Guide is only created for use with Parts I and II (there are FIVE parts total made up of multiple chapters). The reading is demanding for high school students, and therefore I elected to use only part of this otherwise overwhelming text.

 The sections covered are (in order):

“Some Current Views of Justice (as honesty in word and deed, as helping friends and harming enemies, as the interest of the stronger, and 'Is injustice more profitable than justice?')

and

“Justice in the State and in the Individual (the problem stated, the rudiments of social organization, the luxurious state, the guardian's temperament, primary education of the guardians, selection of rulers, the guardians' duties, the virtues in the state, the three parts of the soul, the virtues in the individual, the equality of women, abolition of the family for the guardians, usages of war)

In case the translation you use is labeled differently, I hope that including these section titles will help you to determine which sections of Republic to assign for reading as you use this study guide.

Instead of attempting to examine every element of a book on the first reading, our study guides choose two or three respected literary devices and use them as a focal point.

Though only 100 pages long, Brother Lawrence’s book is packed with character development concepts, including performing all tasks with a purposefully loving attitude, which are as essential today as they were three centuries ago.

Brother Lawrence encourages his readers to be constantly aware of God’s presence, not limiting conversation with Him to morning devotions, but maintaining it throughout each task of the day. What great concepts for Christian teens (and adults)!

World History and Philosophy

280 page downloadable e-book text in .pdf format

World History High School Curriculum

Why would a homeschooled high schooler want to study World History and Philosophy?

Because philosophers run the world (well, often a generation after they pass away).  Christian teens need to understand the philosophies that have driven world culture and politics since ancient times.  This prepares them to help create new philosophic ideas that can change the world!

World History and Philosophy:

  • is a homeschool World History high school curriculum.
  • is a homeschool high school World Philosophy course.
  • covers some important movements in church history, so that teens can note the impact of the faith on the world of philosophers.

World History and Philosophy is a 1 credit etext (downloadable pdf) written in a friendly, conversational style that helps homeschoolers discover the ways that philosophers have impacted their world since before the ancient Greeks - and the ways the world has impacted the philosophers. It adds a fresh history approach to a lively homeschool transcript!

Written by 7 Sister Vicki Tillman and her oldest son, Dr. Micah Tillman (philosophy instructor at Mt. Saint Mary's University and  McDaniel College), World History and Philosophy has been used as textbook for local homeschool classes for years.

This is a user-friendly, college-prep text. It has 30 short, no-busywork chapters with:

  • pictures and maps (so that it is not boring to read)
  • vocabulary and new concepts in sidebars to help facilitate learning
  • comprehension questions for each chapter that help students test their knowledge and begin to develop philosophic thinking skills
  • tests
  • answer keys
  • a final applying-what-you-learned paper with grading rubric
  • instructions on how to raise the level of this 1 credit college-preparatory course to advanced or honors levels (to add power to the high school transcript and richness of experience)

This fun and thought-provoking World History high school curriculum may be completed by a homeschooling high schooler with or without parental support.  It also works well with homeschool group classes.

Topics covered in World History and Philosophy that are favorites with various homeschoolers include:

Ancient Greece, Ancient Turkey, and the Natural Philosophers
The Miletans
Ancient Italy and its Philosophers
Early Greek Philosophy
Early Athens and the Sophists
Greece Versus Persia
Socrates
