razorbackmama Posted January 25, 2011 Share Posted January 25, 2011 How do you use these lectures? My oldest does best with an instructor actually TEACHING information to him, in addition to being able to read from a book. He has auditory issues, so just having a book read aloud doesn't help much - he needs someone to actually TEACH. So as I look through the Great Courses catalog, I began to envision some possibilities for his high school years. Would it be possible to use some of their history courses alongside a book of some sort (a straight lecture format wouldn't do any good for him either, since he has trouble picking out the main point from things he hears)? Is it possible to use a Great Courses course as a spine, and then add books around it? Would you say that their courses are equal to a credit? Half credit? Not even that? Has anyone done this sort of thing (so I don't have to reinvent the wheel:lol: )? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
