Man, sometimes being a homeschool mama can be hard, can’t it?

Enroll today and learn how to teach literary analysis in your homeschool for free!

Analyzing literature is one of those topics that sometimes make us absolutely cringe.

I get it.  It can seem confusing and overwhelming to the point of making you just want to ignore it.

We forget that analysis starts with discussion and asking the right questions and that nowhere on the SAT or any other college entrance exam do kids get asked to define the parts of analysis.  They just have to be able to do it.

If that doesn’t make you sigh in relief, then I don’t know what. Takes a little of the pressure off, no?

So I asked you

When I asked you whether or not you teach lit analysis in your homeschool, a whopping 80% said you don’t.  Of those who don’t teach it, the main reason was that you don’t understand it yourself.

Another reason was that it sucks the joy out of Story. My friend, that does not have to be the case.

In fact, analysis can enrich the story so much that it makes it even more joyful.

And it doesn’t have to be hard, which was another common fear. You just have to understand it.

So I got you.  You know I’m cool like that.

Because it can be fun.

No, really.  Fun.

And easy.  And not boring.

And I answered you
