This curriculum uses a strong biblical worldview to teach students about literary masterpieces from around the world.

Each chapter has five lessons with daily concept-building exercises, warm-up questions, and guided readings The final lesson of the week includes the weekly exam, as well as essays developed through the course of that week’s study, chosen by the educator and student to personalize the coursework for the individual learner.
