Flip the Script – Great Books (Video*)

by Staff

Last week Mrs. Rosario wrote about reading in grammar school which leads directly to an introduction to “The Great Books” in upper school.

Aren’t the Great Books boring?                                 Well, they are an acquired taste.

Aren’t they irrelevant and outdated?                        No! They are timeless and nourishing.

Dead white male?                                                         You’ve totally missed the point!

It’s time to Flip the Script! We hope you enjoy this brief, playful video introduction about the importance of The Great Books.
