Holes follows the life of Stanley Yelnats. Accused and convicted of a crime he did not commit, he goes to Camp Green Lake, a misnamed juvenile detention camp on a dried up, barren Texas lakebed. Every day each boy must dig a five-foot hole in the dry lake bed to "build character"; but it soon becomes clear that the warden is looking for something. Progeny Press Study Guides provide teachers, parents, and students with literary analysis based upon the foundation of the Bible. Examining well-written literature in relation to biblical standards, students will develop and refine how they deal with man's philosophies while learning about the craft of writing. Progeny Press Study Guides deal with literature as works of art and philosophy as they explain and use literary terms; deal with plot construction; dig into character studies; and bring attention to themes and ideas the author has crafted. Easy-to-use lessons include vocabulary, comprehension, analysis and critical thinking exercises, questions on related Biblical principles, activities, and a complete answer key. Middle & High School guides take approximately from 8 to 10 weeks to complete. 80 pages, paperback. Grades 5-8.
