Description

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.

Rebekah Merkle, Author

Merkle, Rebekah: - Rebekah Merkle has dabbled in a number of occupations ranging from running her own clothing label to designing fabrics to becoming a full-time high school humanities teacher (which is fitting, because she was a student guinea pig in some of the very first classical Christian classes in the USA). Rebekah is also the author of the book Eve in Exile, an incisive critique of modern feminism, but by far her proudest accomplishment is her crew of five outrageous, hilarious, high-speed teenage children, and her favorite role is that of wife to her similarly outrageous, hilarious, and high-speed husband Ben Merkle.
