Memoria Press Literature Guide Set Review
My older daughter wanted to read Anne of Green Gables recently. Since I love Memoria Press, I was thrilled to be able to use the Seventh Grade Literature Guide Set which includes the Anne of Green Gables Literature Guide. These literature guides range from first to tenth grades. They give your student the tools to study literature, which is essential for a quality classical homeschool education.

How Do the Study Guides Work?
For this review, I was provided the Seventh Grade Literature Guide Set which contained the following student and teacher guides:
- Anne of Green Gables
- The Hobbit
- Trojan War
- Bronze Bow
These guides take your student to the next level of reading and comprehending the story. They train your child to love the good and hate the bad characters they encounter in the literature read, and the guides show the staying power of good literature. Memoria Press’ classical homeschool approach to literature gives your child the opportunity to delve deep into good literature by some of the best timeless authors.
How We Are Using the Guides
As I have mentioned in the past, we homeschool year round. This summer, we spent a lot of time reading books and discussing them. However, I want to transition back into a program where my children read older literature and are challenged to comprehend the themes more than just simple discussion.
Since these guides focus on vocabulary, spelling, comprehension, and composition skills, I know my child will gain more knowledge than just simple comprehension of the story. Each lesson includes a word study to help students build vocabulary.
My daughter hates regular spelling classes. I find doing vocabulary based classes helps her with that in a way she loves. This helps in giving her a well-rounded education. Plus it helps her become a more active reader.
We started with Anne Of Green Gables, which was one of my favorites as a kid. Since the set came with four guides, we plan to forge ahead next with The Hobbit. I love how the guides are comprised. The student guides are fairly straight forward, and the teacher guides help me in teaching her what she should get out of each book. Everything is organized in a non-frustrating way.
