This Instructor's Manual is designed to serve as a companion to the novel, Secret of Lost Mountain, a gripping adventure story that will appeal to young readers, particularly in Catholic settings. The manul is intended to help high shool teachers and home schooling parents guide young readers to appreciate fiction from a literary perspective, both as a general matter and with respect to this particular novel. The study guide contains questions and expansive answers on the elements of plot (background, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution). Questions also lead the young reader to consider character transformation. Other topics include a novel's point of view, themes derived from the story's outcome, use of symbolism to advance the plot, and possible allegorical dimensions to the story. A final section challenges the avid reader to pursue advanced research on topics related to issues raised by the novel. The manual was written by an award-winning professor of writing and American literature. She also has a background as English department chair of a Catholic high school. The manual presents questions at three distinct levels of difficulty, to accommodate various student ages and ability levels.
