Chronicles of Narnia Literature Study Guide #1: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for High Schoolers
C.S. Lewis' delightful Chronicles of Narnia is not just for kids! Homeschooling high schoolers should revisit The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in order to study the theological and philosophical concepts he imbedded in the stories.
Teens will join Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter in learning about Aslan and his workings in their lives. 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 The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Study Guide, 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
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
The Silver Chair

What are homeschool parents saying about The Chronicles of Narnia Study Guides?
"I am using your literature series with my sixth grade daughter as we read "The Chronicles of Narnia”. We have completed “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and “Prince Caspian” to date. She is a strong reader and enjoys the challenge of answering the questions of this series. I like that some questions can be answered briefly while others require a more detailed response. This series has led to many nice discussions as well as additional writing assignments! Keep up the good work!" - Chris K.
"This fall my daughter utilized the Chronicles of Narnia for the first semester as well as the World History and Philosophy. Both courses provided questions that went beyond "give me the details of the story" and required her to think. She needed to provide supporting material for her answers. In addition, these courses have improved her writing and knowledge of the bible." - Jeanette S.
