“They were able to come up with questions that involved a lot of in-depth thought!”

—Ashley Rupp, First-Grade Teacher
Blaine Elementary School, Chicago

Ashley Rupp, a first-grade teacher at Blaine Elementary School in Chicago, piloted our new K–1 program and was thrilled to see how Junior Great Books enhanced and supported the reading, thinking, and discussion skills of her students.

Watch this video of Ashley and her students discussing “Those Shoes” by Maribeth Boelts. You will be amazed to witness the deep comprehension and careful consideration these first-graders give to come up with great questions.
