BiblioFiles #73: How Do You Measure a Literary Education? (Introducing CenterForLit Schools)


We know, we know…we’ve been awfully quiet around the world wide web this summer. But we’re ready to give you an explanation! By way of doing so, in this episode we discuss one of the great problems of education: how on earth can you quantify it? In a perfect world we would do away with grades altogether, but that has become impractical. Especially in the day school, literature teachers must find a way to communicate progress and demonstrate student proficiency to administrators and parents. How can they do so without sacrificing the true goal of a literary education: to teach students how to read with understanding and enter thoughtful conversation about an author’s ideas? Today we take time out of our regular programming to introduce CenterForLit Schools.
