Progeny Press Review
Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
Progeny Press makes earning High School Literature credits easy with high school level study guides such as My Side of the Mountain Study Guide and Animal Farm Study Guide. The guide suggests that one study guide is worth 1/4 of high school credit. So if your high schooler does two different books you can use the guide for a half-semester credit.
I was excited to see Progeny Press has a study guide for My Side fo the Mountain. When I was a boy, My side of the Mountain was one of my favorite books. I was initially going to read the book out loud to my boys but after reviewing the My Side of the Mountain Study Guide I decided to assign reading it to my older boys for school. The guides I reviewed in my opinion seemed to be High school level of work. Even though the guides are for older kids there are still activities in the guides that you can use with younger children if you are reading the book out loud. For example, there are Prereading activities you can do with younger kids like suggested field trips related to the book. Like in the My Side of the Mountain Reading Guide one of the activities mentioned was to go on a fishing field trip which is always a hit with my boys.
The reading guides are in pdf format so I can use it over again. The pdf actually allows you to type answers in right in the pdf. You can have your student work on the computer and save it or you can just print it out and have them write out the answers. Each pdf has a Synopsis of the book and information about the author. The guides also have a section for additional resources for you. Each section of the book is covered in the reading guide with a vocabulary section and a set of questions about the chapters. Of course, the answers are provided in a separate pdf.
If you are looking for a study guide for your high schoolers literature then I would recommend you look at what Progeny Press has to offer.
