About the Author



As a homeschooling parent, you know what your children like to read, what you want them to learn, and what you want them exposed to at different ages. Tolman Hall Homeschool Literature Unit Studies allow you, as the parent and teacher, to customize your children's literature studies without having to do all the background work yourself. When you use Tolman Hall, you get all the resources you need to teach an in-depth literature unit, but you still have flexibility. If you want, you can focus your unit study on geography, or you can center your unit around a field trip. Even as you focus on one aspect of the literary work, your students will still learn about literary devices, vocabulary, and writing.

Tolman Hall Homeschool Literature Unit Studies are also ideal to use if you're teaching more than one student at home. Since each unit study offers a variety of essay questions, projects, and vocabulary words, you can assign more difficult assignments to your older students than to your younger students, but everyone can still read and discuss the same literary work at the same time. This method of teaching the same literary work to the whole family enriches everyone's understanding of the story. You can spend your meal times discussing literature familiar to everyone. Such discussions create common ground and cohesiveness and reduce the feelings of isolation students feel when they don't have anyone to talk to about what they're learning.
