elegantlion Posted August 4, 2012 Share Posted August 4, 2012 If you wanted to build, create, maintain a home educational library what categories or specific books would think are a must have? Say you wanted to include all the major subjects in each stage grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric level in actual books, not anything electronic. For argument's sake pretend you're going to a deserted island with no electricity, so nothing digital. These are my current categories: grammar writing spelling vocabulary literature world history American history Art - instruction and history science - chem, physics, bio, and earth Math - arithmetic, fractions, decimals, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra II, precalc and statistics Great Books - in literature, history, science, math, and philosophy Languages - Latin, Greek, Japanese, Russian, French, Italian (these are the ones I own- would add German) Reference - Encyclopedias specific to subject, like the DK History book. Roget's thesaurus, dictionary, grammar handbooks, What would you add? Presume you have pencil and paper in good supply. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
