One of the times I heard you speak, you mentioned a certain publisher of literature books (classics) by a particular author that you had your boys read to prepare for the SAT. They were unique in the fact that on the back of each page words were defined.I cannot find that information in my file of notes from you. Do you recall those books, and would you mind sending me the name? Thank you for your time,
You have been quoted as saying, "Homeschool families tend to focus on the classics and colleges like to see that kids have read current, popular books." However, I cannot find that quote anywhere. Is this your opinion? I would like to know because I feel that homeschoolers would indeed benefit from reading some books currently (within the last 20 years or so) published, especially those with a Christian message.
Could you please let me know.
In her article College Bound Reading List, Lee talks gives examples of a wide variety of classic and contemporary literature that would look good to colleges.
