I'm a "study guide, unit study" kind of homeschooling mom. I love it when someone else has found all the links and critical vocabulary words within a book or subject to be studied. I do however almost always "tweak" other's study guides; Nancy Brown's "GKChesterton's The Blue Cross Study Guide" (published by Hillside Education), I don't have to tweak much. Brown has given her reader everything they need for a study of the short story "The Blue Cross" - even the story - in this 90-page study guide.

The study guide includes biographical information about Chesterton. Brown is somewhat of a Chesterton scholar, so her write-up is extensive. She includes references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church to ensure the student understands the Church's teachings on reason.

Brown includes a suggested schedule which takes about 10 days to complete - you of course could make the study of this exceptional short story either longer or shorter. There are essay topics and short-answer questions to help the student delve into the meaning of the story. There are vocabulary words, literary terms , understanding through contextual reading, and other activities to enliven the reader's experience of this first of the Father Brown stories. An answer key is included at the end of the study guide.

I highly recommend this study guide as a great intro to GKC's writings.

Nancy Brown has done us a great service, by providing a useful introduction to one of G.K. Chesterton's classic detective stories. Created for students, it is fully annotated and includes great questions for study and discussion, a vocabulary list, and writing prompts. I found it useful for my (adult) Chesterton discussion group, too. The spiral binding is a nice feature. Appropriate for ages 12 and up.
