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.

For information contact Connie Carven, Teacher Specialist, Greek Studies Program.
