Progeny Press Literature Guides

Progeny Press: Study Guides for Literature from a Christian Perspective

These are the things about the Progeny Press Study Guides for Literature that I really like a lot:
    The Bronze Bow--Study GuideThe Screwtape Letters--Study Guide
  • They have great high school titles.
  • They are interactive!  Students can type right into the PDF file on their laptops AND teachers (moms like me) can make grading notes and comments there too!  How cool is that?
  • They include background information about the book and the author.  
  • The units are "doable."  They suggest that the student reads the whole book first and then over the course of several weeks (8-10 usually) they complete the activities in the book.
The two guides I got to review were The Bronze Bow and The Screwtape Letters.  Both books have been on my to-read list for the boys.  With the Progeny Press Study Guides, I can hand them the book to read during week 1 and then give them the PDF to complete.  Each day they work on an assignment until the study is over.  And we can discuss their assignments and work alongside one another.  Or they can complete the entire unit on their own!  That's another thing I love.  This is something the boys can do independantly.  As they are growing older I want to find more for them to do on their own.  I LOVE spending time with them and working alongside them, but when they're in college, I won't be attending classes with them.  You know what I mean?

Progeny Press has over 100 study guides.  You can start your search here.  And they are for all grades.  It's not just high school units.  If you're not finding what you're looking for, contact Progeny Press here.  

I'm hoping after we finish The Bronze Bow and The Screwtape Letters we can find two other guides to use from Progeny Press.  I think one per semester is a great rate for us.

Want to see what else the rest of the crew had to say about Progeny press?  Find links to their reviews here.

Disclaimer:  I received two literature guides from Progeny Press because I am part of the TOS Homeschool Crew.  My review reflects my honest opinion not affected by the fact that I did not have to pay for either guide.

  1. Stopping by from The Crew to make sure I was following! We loved the Progeny Press unit also ~ we read The Cay. I think The Bronze Bow is going to be one of the first ones we do next year...
