    Hi, we are slowly introducing the narration thing; I wasn’t sure if our rich literature Read-Alouds should be narrated. Is that purely for enjoyment or is narration expected after each chapter?

    It’s your choice whether or not you want your children to narrate literature. We (SCM) generally don’t have the students narrate literature or historical fiction. We want children to enjoy literature without the requirement of narration, which can sometimes take the joy out of reading. For historical fiction, we don’t want children to mix up what is fiction and what is historical fact, so we only require narration on non-fiction history books.

    In regards to literature, high school students can be required to narrate literature or have a book discussion. We currently have two literature discussion guides available for high school literature in our Great Book Discussions series: Ivanhoe and Jane Eyre.
