Aludlam Posted February 7, 2011 Share Posted February 7, 2011 I don't even know what I want, so I really don't even know how to ask this question. I'm hoping that someone out there can point me in the right direction. Background: Oldest is in the 3rd grade and the last time I read anything "great" other than the Bible was in high school. Today: I'm really starting to lay a "concrete" literature/history plan for my dc. I've spent the day going through the WTM and other sources, looking at the list of recommended lit. books at various grades. I've come up with a basic skeleton outline of some of the books that I'm sure that I want them to read. I would like to start studying some of these books now myself (in order to be able discuss the books with dc at the appropriate time). Honestly there are books on my 5th grade list that I've never read. I'm looking for something to help me "learn" (explain??) the literature as I read it. Clear as mud, I know. I've looked at the samples of Omnibus, and really like the commentary. I really don't know what I'm looking for. I think it would be something other than Cliff notes. Some of the other things I've googled, seem to be list of essay type questions with no "given" information, that's not what I want either. I want something to take the place my high school A.P. teacher who would stand at the front of the class and explain in depth what we had read.... kwim?? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
