The Ship of Classics: The Ark, the Titanic, or the Good Ship Lollipop?
Wolverton, Robert E.
Various problems confronting teachers of the classics are explored through frequent reference to the metaphor of the classics viewed as a sailing ship in a sea of troubled waters. Several of the difficulties confronting classics teachers are seen to be related to an anti-intellectual mood prevailing in academe, scheduling problems, shifting school population, and a lack of articulation in classics programs between secondary schools and colleges. Methods for alleviating the difficulties caused by such issues are proposed. (RL)
