The Moon Over Crete
Intended for preadolescents, this novel can serve as an antidote to the well-documented sexism girls encounter as they struggle with questions of self-esteem. It tells the story of 11-year-old Lily, harassed by a boy at school, but with a distinct advantage in that her flute teacher is a time traveler. In the novel, Lily travels back 3,500 years to ancient Crete where she discovers that men and women were equal, and where she feels at home in the culture right away. The novel relates Lily's adventures in Crete and how she goes about getting an audience with the queen, incorporating the art, archaeology, and unisex customs of ancient Crete to create a believable fantasy adventure. The study guide is designed to be used by teachers and/or parents to help children better understand the themes of the novel. Each of the six lessons is divided into three parts. The "Questions" section makes sure the children have read the chapters and understand the storyline. The "Discussion Items" section gives suggestions for topics to talk about with the class--not focusing on right or wrong answers, but on getting children to listen to each other's ideas and react to them. The "Activities" section suggest assignments that students can do on their own--mostly writing activities, but also including drawing, interviewing, and library research activities. The guide aims to help children develop a love of reading, as well as a curiosity and thoughtfulness about the world around them. (NKA)
