Great Ideas Level I Manual, Tree of Life School
Summary of Course: Our first level of the Great Ideas studies is a two credit course. Based on the idea that students ought to be given the opportunity to participate in the “Great Conversation” by reading Great Books,this course will allow much reading, plenty of reflection on ideas encountered, and instruction and practice in the art of written expression. The material is integrated so that students will be exposed to all the essential skills found in top notch secondary English and Worldview/Philosophy courses. If a student is a good reader, expresses himself well in written work, and is mature and inquisitive, this is a good choice for a Classical and Christian educational experience.
Level I deals with the foundational ideas of God and Man.
See web page for more details on Level I.
