However, I am giving just 3 stars because whoever laid out this book made it more difficult to use than is necessary. The student pages with questions and writing prompts are in the back half of the book. The section with the answers is at the front. Even using the electronic edition (kindle app), this makes it awkward for the student to find the right pages. Reversing the sections with the student pages first would make this study guide easier to use.
The first part of the book is the teacher's section with all the answers, and later there is a student's section. For each chapter of Bauer's book, this guide contains 3 to 4 sections of questions for the student. Section I: Who, What, Where, asks the student for short definitions to specific items listed. This could be done verbally or as a written assignment for the student (my opinion). Answers are given for every question in the teacher guide section. Section II: Comprehension, asks the student to express in their own words answers to regarding the central concepts in two or three sentences. Again, I think it could be verbal or written if you choose. Section III: Critical Thinking, assigns the student to write a paragraph in response to specific questions given.
After page 338 is the Student Study Guide where just the questions given and sometimes a 4th section entitled Map Work is included. It entails drawing or tracing the outline of maps in Bauer's book and filling in what it tells you to fill in, then doing it again without looking at the book. I think It would have been nice if the teacher's guide and the student guide were split into two books so the student could have their own copy without the answers.
I just wanted to point out that I felt some of the sample answers in this guide are not from a Christian perspective - at least ours anyway. For example, the Study & Teaching Guide author clearly states that a worldwide flood did not happen and that the flood stories are myths in her sample of possible student answers to the question "What conclusion can we come to about the Great Flood?" Of course, you don't have to use the author's answers, so the guide would still be useful to anyone wanting to use the book in their homeschool. Obviously for a secular homeschool this would not be an issue. I enjoyed SWB's book very much and feel this study guide could be adapted for homeschooling.
