Reading Lists

This is the third time today that I've been asked if a student can substitute a book suitable for Middle Schoolers instead of a 300 level college text. Though I complain, on another level, I sympathize; pictures and friendly to read fonts are all too often missing in such books. Much of the vocabulary, not just words such as 'declension' but also the difference between 'Democratic' with a capital D and 'democratic' with a lower case d, is comfortable ground for me, but probably a bit daunting for less experienced readers. I miss books with words and pictures.

Words Written: forty-five
Lessons Graded: nine
