Reading Roadmaps Booklists

Plenty of parents have watched the Andrews' DVD seminars and understand the methods and purpose of the Socratic method for literature education, but aren't sure which books to start with. Reading Roadmaps presents extensive booklists for each grade-level, along with lesson plans, reading schedules, and writing assignments, and it transforms Teaching the Classics into an actual literature curriculum.

The annotated booklists in Reading Roadmaps are based on Missy Andrews' hand-picked selections for grades K-12. These are all classics, most of them well-known, and each title lends itself particularly well to the Socratic method. Besides providing teaching tips, this guide tells parents how to assess students' written work, assign grades, and ensure your students cover everything they need to know about Western literature.

We've teamed up with the Center for Literary Education to offer complete sets of the recommended titles in Reading Roadmaps at discounted prices and bundled by grade level. These are fantastic collections whether you're using Teaching the Classics or not, though the Andrews' program is certainly an excellent place to start your family's literary journey.

Reading Roadmaps is an important product. While Teaching the Classics and the Worldview Supplement are both good starting places, this guide shows you how to implement the information in the lectures and discussions, and how to reproduce those discussions in your own home. For beginners, the Reading Roadmaps guide is close to being an essential element.

That said, if you're confident you can teach the way Adam and Missy Andrews do without further guidance, consider at least using the titles in these booklists as your beginning point. You'll find books you like more, no doubt, but it's never a good idea to strike out in foreign territory alone, and the Andrews have done a lot of work to make sure you aren't without guidance. These book bundles are highly recommended.
