Great Books Staffer Participates in Honors Lecture Series
Donald H. Whitfield, Great Books Vice President for Community and National programs, is delighted to be a guest lecturer at Middle Tennessee State University’s upcoming Spring 2016 Honors Lecture Series. The theme of this year’s series is the Value of Liberal Education. Don is speaking on Monday, March 14, and his topic is Great Books and the Liberal Arts. “I will discuss how the Great Books provide both the content and the skills that together comprise a liberal arts education,” said Whitfield. “The polemical aspect of the talk will be a suggestion of how the greatness of a book might be assessed.” Lectures are free and open to the public.

I am currently interested in how I might use your Great Books Roundtable for my students in grades 6-8. My student population consist of 40% of boys and girls reading below grade level. I am searching for strategies to combat this trend and groom them to becoming life long readers, how can you assist me in this pursuit?
Thanks for your interest in Great Books Roundtable! We’re confident GBR would be an ideal addition to your classroom & look forward to helping you implement successful strategies to improve your students’ reading levels. You’ll hear from one of our New York educational consultants soon–watch your in-box for an email that ends with @greatbooks.org!
