A Lesson in Grammar School Literature: Aristotle and Charlottes Web

Using Aristotle’s thoughts on friendship and E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web as an example, we will experience an actual lesson in which the great classical thinkers and Biblical principles can be taught at the grammar level and applied to children’s literature. We will further discuss exploring ideas of teaching grammar students to think about literature, and apply it to other disciplines of thought, concluding with the importance of teaching students to find God’s story within the story.
