Ready Readers: The Chronicles of Narnia

By: Megan Andrews


Each volume in the Ready Readers series provides complete discussion notes for a collection of classic stories, including questions from the Socratic List on all major structural and stylistic elements: conflict, plot, characters, setting, theme, context and literary devices. Each question is answered in full with references to the text. Ready Readers also provides completed story charts and a short author biography for each title.

Ready Readers is based on the Teaching the Classics approach to reading, which involves working with stories at or below a student’s reading level.  While the volumes in this series are appropriate to the reading level of a specific age group, they can be applied to grades at their reading level and up.


Product Description

C. S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia remains among the world’s most treasured books for readers young and old.  Now you can lead great discussions of these classics with ease.  Designed for use with the Teaching the Classics program, Ready Readers: The Chronicles of Narnia deals with each story separately, providing you with 7 ready-to-teach lessons in reading comprehension or literary analysis.

This 160-page book provides a full set of Socratic discussion questions for each story with comprehensive answers keyed to the text.  Questions cover Conflict, Plot, Setting, Characters, Theme, and Literary Devices.  In addition, a completed Story Chart graphically outlines the major structural and thematic elements of each story.

This book will help you lead your students on a guided tour of Narnia.  Along the way, you’ll give them a host of reading techniques they can use for the rest of their lives:


Ready Readers; The Chronicles of Narnia helps develop good reading comprehension in the very youngest students.  It encourages them to ponder well-designed questions about structure, style, context, and theme in every story they read.


Though the books discussed here were written for young readers, they provide excellent examples of the structural elements common to all stories.  They are therefore useful even in discussions with older students, who read at a higher level but may be new to the techniques of literary analysis.
