At RC History we have always been believers in teaching students how to think. To consider, ponder, wrestle with ideas and discuss our thoughts and ideas with others contributes greatly to developing truly educated human beings. That's one of the reasons why we LOVE this series.
The Questions for the Thinker Study Guides use the Socratic method of a question and answer format to guide the high school student through classical works of literature. After a brief introduction about the author and the work in the first half of the book, questions are provided to help the student understand the text. The second half of the book has the answers to the questions.
At the end of many of the chapters are Questions for Further Thought™ which help the student think beyond the text. Many of the questions are designed to help the student either apply the lessons learned or to think about how his beliefs contrast with those presented. There are also Vocabulary Words to Know to help expand the student's vocabulary.
These study guides are perfect companions to the great works of classical literature which are used in the upper levels of Connecting with History.
