Its the Depression and dust covers and fills everything. Billie Jo finds joy and solace in her piano playing, but even that fails when unthinkable tragedy strikes her family. Out of the Dust is written as a poetic journal and vividly brings the Dust Bowl years to life.Looking for more than activity sheets or a who-did-what series of questions? Want to dig into the essence of the novel? This study guide provides easy-to-use, reproducible lessons on literary terms, comprehension and analysis, critical thinking, related scriptural principles, vocabulary, and activities, plus a complete answer key. Examines issues from a Christian perspective. Excellent for private schools and home study. Also an excellent reference for public school teachers, but biblical references may have to be removed.
