    I am really enjoying using this unit with my son. I would love to email the author and find out more about what caused you to design these and whether there will be more book studies available. Really appreciate your approach.

    • Dear Lisa,
      Thank you so much for your encouragement! I’m glad you’re finding them helpful. I taught a high school literature course for our home school co-op a couple years ago. I spring boarded off of CenterforLit.com’s worldview supplement and created a curriculum that challenged my students to strenghen their biblical worldview by digging into and analyzing literature that sometimes presented a very different explanation of why the world is the way it is. I had a lot of fun teaching it! I’ll do my best to get back to downloading the rest of my course material this summer for the other novels I’ve listed on the site.
      You’ve helped motivate me!
      Dawn
