Greek Troublesome and Troubling: Teaching Greek with Textbooks by the Joint Association of Classical Teachers

Douglas Hill

Brown University

My students and I have encountered serious problems with these textbooks. I hope our experience will prepare educators who intend to use Reading Greek for the challenges they will face. Students are frustrated by the numerous errors, but more disturbing is Reading Greek’s approach to Athenian history. Often, careless phrasing normalizes the treatment of women as commodities.
