Trivium Pursuit

Benjamin Franklin Method

I am having a hard time finding essays that are well written for my students to “practice” the Benjamin Franklin method of reading, outlining, and rewriting from outline [page 399 of Teaching the Trivium]. Any suggestions that are easy to do today? Thanks so much. Juli

There are several books of essays in the Harvard Classics set. Also, McGuffey’s Sixth Eclectic Reader has several short and fairly easy-to-read essays. Probably any of the old readers will contain essays.
