We have prepared eight (8) excellent Great
Books Study Guides, one for each semester of the Program.
These Study Guides contain related poetry selections as
well as summaries, context notes, Things to Think About
While Reading the Book, Study Questions, Questions on
Language and For and Reflection Questions. Each week
students on the college track are
expected to read the Study Guide selection for that week's Great Books reading and
submit written answers to selected study guide questions.
In addition to the weekly writing assignments
students on the college track submit two essays
of approximately 1800 words per semester. These will be
evaluated for content
as well as for English language arts, including grammar,
syntax, spelling, vocabulary and style.
At the conclusion of the semester, students
will be given an oral exam in the live-audio internet format
of the seminars. These usually last from 30-60 minutes and are
conducted by one or both of the moderators.
Students may request extra work in the form of
essays to attempt to raise any grade in the course, including
the final grade. However, any proposed extra work must be
approved in advance by a moderator. It is up to the moderator
to allow this or not in each case. Any extra work must be
approved, completed and submitted within ninety (90) days of
the last seminar of that class.
