Hope this is the correct place for this question. My friend--an English major/teacher--is interested in developing a Catholic Literature High School curriculum (utilizing some great Catholic authors as well as literature that embodies Catholic principles). My question: What is already out there and where can I send her to find it (no sense re-inventing the wheel)?

Thank you, having no one of HS age I did not know how to respond.

You should also look at the guides that CHC puts out. They focus only on Catholic authors.

Loyola Press is reprinting Catholic classics and they have really good discussion questions in the back.

But, no, I know of no comprehensive (stand alone) high school lit program for Catholics. I have some opinions about it and would love to correspond with your friend about it, if she wants input . I'm sure Sally T would have great input as well. You might consider posting this in the high school years forum and see what people there say.

ETA - OH! I guess the literature stuff that Kolbe and Seton produce would be considered a comprehensive program!!
