C.S. Lewis’ works are fantastic studies for high schoolers! With incredibly rich and deep literary themes examining the psychology of temptation, the Christian life, and so much more, Lewis’ works are the perfect backdrop for discussions with teens! This class will begin with a study of the Space Trilogy and Mere Christianity (vocabulary, chapter questions, and discussions of philosophical/theological ideas within the texts) and conclude with an in-depth examination of The Chronicles of Narnia (vocabulary, discussion questions, and theological discussions). Students completing this course will understand the background of C.S. Lewis, build inferential, summarization, and critical thinking skills, gain an understanding of philosophical concepts driving Western culture, as well as begin to understand the importance of taking responsibility for the maturation of their own faith. This class is a literary experience not to be missed!
