Progeny Press Study Guides (TOS Review)

Photobucket

Progeny Press sells over 100 literature study guides for Kindergarten through high school levels. The guides concentrate on comprehension, literary analysis, critical thinking, and Christian application. I used (and loved) several of them with my older children in the past. Until now, I hadn’t used one with Emily.

The guides are available in print, cd, or pdf form. I’ve had many curriculum materials in pdf form before and the printing is always a bit of an expense and hassle. I was thrilled to see that I didn’t have to print this guide. All of  Progeny Press’s pdf or cd versions are interactive! Emily was able to type or mark her answers directly on the computer. This made it fun and easy for her as well simpler for me!

I thought that the Bronze Bow study guide (grades 6-8) was very well done. Emily enjoyed the work and I felt that the activities both reinforced basic skills and added to her understanding of the novel.  A few outside research assignments were included as well. We will continue to use Progeny Press guides in the future.

The email and cd versions of the Bronze Bow guide sell for $16.99. Print edition is $18.99.

5/5 stars

As a member of the TOS Crew, I received a free study from Progeny Press in order to write this review. All opinions are my own.
