I participated in this last year, and highly recommend it! The Great Books for Parents Challenge is a good way to keep on track with your self-education—a.k.a. teacher training! Roman Roads has a fabulous reward for completing the Challenge by the end of 2016:
If you complete the challenge by December 31st, 2016, you will qualify for a free unit from the Old Western Culture curriculum, which includes the video set ($56 value), the workbook ($12), and the accompanying Reader ($22 value).
Visit Roman Roads Old Western Culture for all the details. They are also currently offering The Historians and The Aeneid courses at a 20% discount to Challenge participants.
Our family knows and loves Mr. Callihan, aka The Vicar, aka The Benevolent Dictator. Every one of our kiddos has studied or are studying the four-year Great Books course at Schola Tutorials. I also spent two years studying with Wes in his Great Books for Parents course–one of the best investments of time and money I have made in my ongoing pursuit of self-education. Old Western Culture from Roman Roads is making this outstanding course more accessible and available for current and future generations of students and parents.
