Bring the Classics to Life!

Old Western Culture is a double credit integrated humanities curriculum that covers the great books of western civilization. The heart of the course is Wesley Callihan, a master of the classics and gifted story-teller who integrates history, theology, philosophy, art, poetry, and so much through a study of the great books.

The name of the course, Old Western Culture, was a term coined by C.S. Lewis to describe the body of knowledge that was once the common possession of all educated men and women. For centuries, a Great Books education lay at the heart of what it meant to be educated. It was the education of the Church Fathers, of the Medieval Church, of the Reformers, and of all the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Grammar of Poetry teaches the mechanics of poetry by using the classical approach of imitation. While many poetry courses jump straight into analysis and appreciation without ever covering the foundation of how poetic language works, Grammar of Poetry is designed to provide a robust understanding of the building blocks of poetry, covering such principles as meter, rhyme, simile, metaphor, personification, synecdoche, onomatopoeia, and so much more!

Designed for 6-9th graders, but it can also be used by high schoolers or adults seeking to achieve a better knowledge of how poetry works.

**NEW**  Picta Dicta is an interactive web app that will revolutionize the way you and your students learn Latin vocabulary! It is designed by Timothy Griffith, fellow of Classical Languages at New Saint Andrews College, and represents years of study and thought into the pedagogy of how we teach foreign languages.

There are currently two Picta Dicta courses available, Natural World and Vocabulary Builder.
  • Picta-Dicta: Natural World is especially well-suited for elementary-age students, and focuses on a specific and important set of vocabulary—the natural world. Students learn the English and Latin for over 400 nouns from the natural world to establish an unparalleled foundation for later study in Latin, English literature, foreign languages, history, and the sciences.
  • Picta-Dicta: Vocabulary Builder is geared towards Jr. High, high school, and college students, and focuses on general reading vocabulary including verbs, adjectives, prepositions, and nouns for over 1,000 Latin words and concepts. It is designed for students seeking proficiency in reading Latin. It uses Multi-dimensional learning that provides students with a deeper understanding of words: pictures, sounds, context, definitions, translations, lexical information, and more.

We really like this curriculum because it's a nice combination of working together, and with a video. I was disappointed by the Christian bent and biblical references because that was not disclosed up front. My child likes this format and has learned a lot.
T. Randall,
This program is great. My twelve-year-old has worked on it independently, steadily learning challenging material without becoming overwhelmed. She was delighted to write poems in traditional forms and even posted one on an Internet social website.
Laurel V., Co-op Member
Thanks so much for putting together a wonderful curriculum. My girls and I have truly enjoyed it and have a betting understanding and respect for poetry. We are no longer just "reading" poetry.
Christine A, Co-op Member
We are so blessed to find this resource. My HS attends a private catholic hybrid school in GA, and we are using it as a supplement for the classics study of the greek culture. The administrators are also looking at incorporating it after several parents shared their positive effects on their students. Cant wait for the Romans Series!
Kris K., Co-op Member
We have used: Old Western Culture: Year 1: The Greeks, Grammar of Poetry, and will be using Fitting Words this year with the Blu-ray. The Greeks literature series was phenomenal, although we were not able to get through the entire thing with my ninth grader within one year. No problem, we will loop back occasionally and add a book. My child absolutely loves Ancient Greek literature now. DVDs or streaming are worth every penny.

As for Grammar of Poetry, my child learned poetry so easily and with such enthusiasm. I had other poetry ...(more)
Rebecca J, Co-op Member
I really like the idea of a classical education for my children. I was considering Omnibus by VP but was very intimidated by teaching that myself and their online classes were so expensive. When I found this DVD series I felt like this was exactly what I was looking for! My ninth grader and I sit and watch Wesley Callihan talk to us from his study chair. He really makes the Greek Classics accessible to us. I also love that he comes to the classics from a Christian world view. This series fits the bill for a classical education!
R. Andrews, Co-op Member
My 7th grade daughter is 6 weeks into this program and loving it! The teaching is clear and the exercises are set up in an approachable and enjoyable format. We are both glad we added it to our curriculum this year.
