     We strongly recommend that you read all literary works before assigning them
     to determine whether or not they are appropriate for your students. If you are
     teaching two or more students who are close in age, have them read Pride
     and Prejudice at the same time so that they may discuss the novel and work
     cooperatively. Also, consider collaborating with other homeschool families for
