Level 4 Literature and Writing Discovery Guides are recommended for high school students (grades 9–12) who have acquired the skills and proficiency necessary to read and to respond to a complex piece of literature.

In addition to tracing character development, students will research themes, symbols, and motifs, have weekly writing activities and culminate study with an original essay and creative project.

Each guide is designed to be completed in five weeks, which allows students to comfortably work through six units in a typical school year.

A lexicon is the collected vocabulary of a person. Over the course of 26 weeks, students will explore a cluster of words from the lexicon of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkein. Using these words in an original way, with inspiration from favorites such as The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Lord of the Rings, will help the budding wordsmith recognize the plasticity of language and delight in its beauty.

In Their Own Words

Lewis:

Don’t use words too big for the subject. Don’t say ‘infinitely’ when you mean ‘very’; otherwise you’ll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite.

Tolkien:

Usually I compose only with great difficulty and endless rewriting.
