Classical Me, Classical Thee: Squander Not Thine Education by Rebekah Merkle
Grades aren’t the point, so drill to win. Rebekah Merkle knows which high school classes you like and which you roll your eyes at, which books you enjoy and which you kinda skim. That’s because she went through this whole thing called classical education, too. Classical Me, Classical Thee is light-hearted and — most importantly for you busy students — very short. It has a simple goal: to explain why you students are doing what you do in class. (Spoiler: it’s not because you’ll use your knowledge of the Iliad Book 5 yearly until you die.) What you do in class is a drill — and nobody drills for the sake of the drill. You do drills so you can win the game. The real tragedy, though, would be if you didn’t know you were doing drills…or didn’t know there was a game at all.
