The first week of school was a success!
We practiced routines, memorized names, and began digging into our weekly lessons.
As students begin to learn new sets of vocabulary, practice key word outlines, and recall the parts of speech this week, they will also become acquainted with the great classic literature that makes up our foundation at Benjamin Franklin High School.
For those of you supporting students at home, or students looking to dig deeper, I would like to share this eloquent presentation on the value of a classic education by Jeff Brenzel, philosopher and Dean of Undergraduate Admissions at Yale.
If you only have 3 minutes, watch times 9:10-11:03 minutes.
