Description of Guide To The Great Books by Wes Callihan
Designed for both the homeschool and Christian school classroom, Veritas Press materials provide the structure and information necessary for a successful, classical Christian education. With learning emphasis placed on grammar, logic and rhetoric, students lay their academic foundation first through extensive memorization, and then through the study of logic and eloquent expression. When these concepts are fully grasped, the student is then equipped to analyze and master every other subject.
The Guide to the Great Books is a teacher’s resource containing brief background information, summaries, and main themes of various classic books. Descriptions of popular titles and explanations of design and intent of literature genres are included, as well as a study guide for The Iliad. Additional guides are sold separately and contain study questions, worksheets, and writing exercises of both a factual and philosophical nature to challenge the student’s comprehension and understanding of the material. Guides are 3-hole punched for easy insertion into the Guide to the Great Books’ 3-ring binder. Additional guides are only available to those who have purchased this core binder.
