C.S. Lewis’ delightful Chronicles of Narnia is not just for kids! Homeschooling high schoolers should revisit The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in order to study the theological and philosophical concepts he imbedded in the stories.
Teens will join Lucy, Edmund, and Eustace and the crew of The Dawn Treader in learning about dealing with challenge, friendship, and affection. 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 Voyage of the Dawn Treader 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
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!
