Great Books. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Great Books" is a program that aims to improve the reading, writing, and critical thinking skills of students in kindergarten through high school. The program is implemented as a core or complementary curriculum and is based on the Shared Inquiry[TM] method of learning. The purpose of "Great Books" is to engage students in higher-order thinking and collaborative problem solving. It involves teachers focusing discussion on the interpretation of a text and students participating as partners in these discussions. No studies of "Great Books" that fall within the scope of the Adolescent Literacy review protocol meet What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence standards. The lack of studies meeting WWC evidence standards means that, at this time, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of "Great Books" on adolescent learners. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
