What is Timeline of Classics?

What happens when you spend the majority of three decades in a classroom? You end up with priceless memories of students, a head filled with useful teaching methods, and countless bulging book cases.

I’d like to share a little of that resourcefulness with you!

The purpose of my website is to help classical educators and teaching parents learn to: enjoy literature, connect with history, and think deeply about the good and great books.

Books are meant to be enjoyed.

Wouldn’t you like to create lasting memories around books?

Book choices are endless.

Wouldn’t you like to spend more time reading and less time searching for the all-time great books?

 Classics are too hard to read and comprehend…or are they?

The history of the world is told through books.

Wouldn’t you like to learn/teach history using classic literature?

Even those of us without a formal literary education can read, enjoy, and teach the good and great books.

So, if you’re a book junkie like me, you’ve come to the right place!
