Great Books discussions are led by readers, not by professionals. Leaders volunteer to read the work, come up with interpretive questions (not yes/no questions), and keep the discussion on track. Leaders are not authorities on the topic being discussed, they are people who enjoy a good discussion and are doing their part to facilitate them. Everyone can be a Great Books leader and we encourage you to take a few simple steps to become one. Here is a list of the tools available to help you lead a Great Books discussion, be it your first or your 50th. And thank you!
- Group Starter Kit and Handbook
- Shared Inquiry PDF
- Suggested reading lists
- Possible questions for selected readings
- MeetUp tutorial – working on this, but it should be done soon
