Few things make homeschoolers as anxious as teaching high school. If you weren’t someone who could easily chat about literary themes and symbolism or you didn’t pay that much attention in lit class, teaching literature to your high schooler can be daunting. My guest today, Janice Campbell, is here to help!Listen to the podcast
My Guest on Teaching High School Literature: Janice Campell
Janice and her husband Donald homeschooled their four sons from preschool into early college using a lifestyle of learning approach influenced by Charlotte Mason and classical education. A lifelong reader and learner, Janice has been sharing her joy in homeschooling at conferences since the 1990s. She is the author of the Excellence in Literature curriculum for grades 8-12, Transcripts Made Easy, and other resources, and she writes for various homeschooling magazines, as well as online at EverydayEducation.com, Excellence-in-Literature.com, and DoingWhatMatters.com.
How to Teach High School Literature
Janice and I chat about the challenge of teaching classics, why teens should be encouraged to write in their books, and how to prepare younger students for in-depth literature study. I know you’ll appreciate her as I did.
