    Literature Guides


    Can someone tell me if the high school literature guides assign essay writing? Are any prompts given? About how many essays are assigned in each guide? Are there other types of writing within the guides?


    I don’t have my guides with me to verify but from what I recall from Lit 9 guides is that there are 3-4 essay topics that can be chosen from for each book. I can’t recall if there is an essay opportunity at each section of the book (instead of taking a quiz, I think) or just once per book. (I just had my guys write one essay per book so I can’t remember if that was the way it was set up or just the way I did it.)

      Thank you- that helps with my planning.


        I also don't have the books in front of me, but I think there is an essay assigned for every Rhetoric section in each guide. In a guide for a novel, that would be after several chapters. In a Shakespeare guide, it would be after each Act. And Hollie is also correct that you can choose an essay or take a test. So you could do a couple of essays and take a couple of tests If you wanted. Or don't take any tests and concentrate on writing skills. Lots of open-ended options there.
