About Where the Brook and River Meet-

Where the Brook and River Meet
By Margie Gray

 From the practical to the poetic, Where the Brook and River Meet takes students on a journey through the Victorian Era and the world of Anne of Green Gables.

Through varied, thought-provoking activities that stimulate interest and inquiry, they will explore the events and thinking of the time. Combining elements of the classical education of Anne’s day—dictation, recitation, memorization, essay writing—with the interdisciplinary approach of today—use of primary documents, field trips, hands-on projects—this study will challenge students to reflect on the historical issues of the Victorian day as well as the personal challenges of growing up.

While following the lively, imaginative Anne into young womanhood, students will be led to look at their own journey into maturity. From discussions of self-acceptance, appearance, friendship, and romance, they will move beyond to reflect on character-building questions. What does it take to be a good friends? What should be the topic of our conversations? What are the effects of unforgivingness? For, at the heart of this study is the author’s desire to see young women grow into the grace of womanhood and the fruitfulness of the Lord.

Author Margie Gray uses the wisdom in Montgomery’s book as a springboard to teaching beyond knowledge:

“Before beginning Where the Brook and River Meet , I asked myself ‘What I want to teach my children?’ The answers came as I started writing—I want to prepare my daughters for singleness or married life; to teach them how to be godly wives and mothers; to help them learn marketable skills; and, above all, I want to nurture them in the knowledge of the Lord. That is what Marilla wanted for Anne and what she set about doing in Anne of Green Gables.’”

Every aspect of Where the Brook and River Meet is designed to enhance learning. Detailed lesson plans, subject headings, activity icons, informational appendices, and more guide the student and instructor through the variety of learning experiences. The scholarly tasks of reading, research, and writing are well balanced with many hands-on exercised like flower pounding, print making, and drawing. Dialogue-based reading comprehension questions and other discussion-type activities build communication between parent and child.

This interdisciplinary curriculum is designed primarily for high school students. It is a full academic year program which covers a number of subject areas: literature, history, writing, grammar, fine arts, social studies, Bible, religion, occupational education, and health. Students will be exposed to many aspects of these subjects including: the opera and visual arts of the period; literature from many eras; poetry appreciation; a woman’s role in society; information on the nature, prevention, and care of diseases; the attitude of service to the sick and injured as well as the less fortunate. In keeping with the spirit of the Victorian age, a one-year course in Latin is suggested. Separate mathematic and laboratory science programs should be added to round of the curriculum.

Recently revised and updated, Where the Brook and River Meet is now over 500 pages and an even more effective program for your home school.

You and your students will be challenged by the clear call to higher standards this study sets forth.

Required Resources-

BT- Anne GG The Annotated Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery $45.00

Edited by Wendy E. Barry, Margaret Anne Doody, and Mary E. Doody Jones

 ILLUSTRATED HARDCOVER

The Annotated Anne of Green Gables
Edited by Wendy E. Barry,
Margaret Anne Doody, and Mary E. Doody Jones

Excerpted from the jacket cover of The Annotated Anne of Green Gables:

"Now, in this first fully annotated edition of Anne of Green Gables, readers will appreciate more clearly than ever before the scope and depth of this extraordinary novel.

The editors provide a richly illustrated, completely revised text, along with hundreds of notes describing the real-life characters and settings Anne encounters, the autobiographical connections between Anne and Maude Montgomery, and the book's astonishing range of literary, Biblical, and mythological references.

Additional essays offer fascinating background information on such topics as the geography and settlement of Prince Edward Island; the education, orphanages; music; and literature of Anne's time; and the horticulture, homemade artifacts, and food preparation that are so prevalent in the story.

This edition also contains a chronology of Montgomery's life, an extensive bibliography, songs, and poems that appear in the text, and a selection of original reviews of the books. This wealth of material enables readers to grasp the marvelous multi-layeredness of the novel and to understand more fully its place in both its own time and in ours."
 

This is a beautiful and exceptionally useful resource. It should be noted, however, that the authors demonstrate a definite feminist bias in their commentaries and do not present a Christian world view. Discussion between the instructor and student regarding content is encouraged. This book will be used frequently as a reference during the study of Where the Brook and River Meet.

 

CC- Anthology Anne’s Anthology: Following the Footnote Trail $29.99

Compiled by Margie Gray. Nearly 700 pages of poetry referenced in Montgomery’s works

Illustrated by Patty Ann Martirosian

Anne's Anthology is a compilation of many of the pieces — primarily poetry — Lucy Montgomery mentioned in Anne of Green Gables . They were pieces Anne loved and ones with which the girls in Lucy Montgomery's audience were very familiar. However, many have been lost in obscurity and the allusions are no longer understood. Now these hard-to-find works are collected for your reference and enjoyment in the almost 700 pages of Anne’s Anthology.

Most of the poems are given in full-text with notes. Portions of longer works are also included. Like a patchwork quilt made from scraps of loved clothing, Anne's Anthology exposes its readers to best-loved poems from a previous era.

This book will be used as a reference during the study of Where the Brook and River Meet.

“Don’t you just love poetry that gives you a crinkly feeling
up and down your back?”
—Anne, Anne of Green Gables, Chapter V

Where the Brook and River Meet is intended for junior high and high school students. The mean age for students using WBRM is 15.5 years old. Although a ten-year-old can understand the plot of Anne of Green Gables they are not ready for the critical thinking this study offers.

Can you substitute the suggested history?

I suppose you can substitute anything, but the history does match Anne of Green Gables. Personally, I like most of the history, and doing the recommended history activities helps me to enjoy the story more. Also, reading the story helps me to enjoy the history more! I love the way unit studies incorporate each subject.
