Junior Great Books

Ignite students’ curiosity and develop critical thinking skills through rich literature.

The Junior Great Books program combines high-quality literature, student-centred discussion, and activities that support reading comprehension, critical thinking, speaking and listening, and writing.

Junior Great Books provides outstanding classroom materials with both digital and print options. The program helps students get the most out of reading and interacting with their teachers and classmates. Its central focus, Shared Inquiry™, is a method of learning that gives teachers the approach they need to help their students succeed.

Register for a taster today and create a vibrant classroom environment in which students develop the habits of effective learners, have their curiosity ignited and quickly develop critical thinking skills while appreciating rich literature.

Independent Schools Victoria offers the Junior Great Books Program through the Great Books Foundation in the United States. The program has successfully trained teachers to work with students of all abilities and at all levels, providing new ways to build on their strengths.
