High School Honors Book Studies
The main goal of the Honors Book Studies are to help the student learn to analyze, appreciate, and gain inspiration from good and beautiful literature.
Honors Book Studies are designed to be used in addition to the High School Language Arts courses for those students who work at a faster pace and can use more challenging work. The reading books for the Honors Book Studies are more challenging than the required reading books for the High School Language Arts courses.
The Good and the Beautiful Honors Book Studies are student-directed consumable booklets that accompany select books from The Good and the Beautiful Library. Each Honors Book Study is designed to help students explore the book’s themes and messages, appreciate the literary value of the book, and learn new vocabulary and writing skills that correlate with the book.
Students can complete as few or as many of the Honors Book Studies as desired. Honors Book Studies can be completed in any order.
