Special Book and Resource Collection
Available from The
Examined Life Program
The Greek Studies Capsule Library contains
books, charts, graphics, CDs, and audiotapes that will be
of interest to teachers and students. It also includes information
about the Greek Studies program and curriculum units developed
by Year 1 Greek Study Fellows for adaptation and use by teachers
K-12. The aim of the program and the curriculum materials
is to strengthen Greek studies in the schools. We would appreciate
it if you would keep careful track of the materials, and
replace anything that is lost or damaged.
