How We Evaluate Curriculum
by Laurie Detweiler
It’s that time of year. It may be exciting to you or it may be a time of dread. Regardless, it’s that time of year—the time when you begin planning and selecting curriculum for next year. Our approach might make your job easier. It’s the grid we use to evaluate curriculum. It certainly makes our job easier here at Veritas Press.
We frequently hear how much you enjoy getting our catalog (our new edition comes out in May) and reviewing what we’ve included. Many are curious about the curriculum selection process. It’s fairly simple.
Is it just me, or do children these days believe Easter is about pastel-colored candies and abnormally large bunnies? I know commercialism swallows every holiday and pushes the real meaning to a corner, but Easter is THE holiday that must not be diluted to such meaningless materialism. After all, Easter is the reason we are Christians. It wasn’t a fluffy, white bunny that gave its life for us, which begs the question, where did this idea about Easter come from?
Middle-Earth: A Mystical Masterpiece

When a journalist of The Guardian asked J.R.R. Tolkien’s son what he thought his father would have made of his enormous popularity, Christopher Tolkien replied, “I think . . . that he might have been in turns delighted, charmed, amused, puzzled, disquieted, baffled, indignant, but, finally, comprehensively astounded” (Flood). John Ronald Reuel Tolkien never intended to write the twentieth century’s most popular novels.
