Lightning Lit question

I can't answer your question, but perhaps the following links will be helpful.


Lori D. was kind enough to post these:


Lightning Lit 7 and 8 (full year program, written to the student)

Uses whole works; covers a variety of poetry, short stories, biography, and different genres (fiction, humor, realistic, adventure). Only potential downside for you is that the teaching instruction focuses only on one literary element per unit; LL7 has 8 units; LL8 has 12 units. Good amount/variety of types of worksheets go with each unit to practice literary element learned and lead into very basic literary analysis. Teacher guide has a few deeper discussion questions, a little bit more background info, schedule, answers to the worksheets, and a few additional resources.

And Myra was kind enough to post this:


Here's the link for Hewitt's yahoo group - the ones that publish Lightning Literature. The moderator is the author and she's really great (and upfront) about answering questions pertaining to individual situations and their program.




Hope this helps
