As a student reading classics had a profound effect on my creativity, imagination and writing skills. When I started teaching from the first year of college, I introduced classics to my students. I implemented the same techniques and methods of teaching with my students and saw the difference in them. I taught English Literature and English Language besides History to the students of the 9th and 10th grade at a prestigious ICSE school in Mumbai, and followed the same methods of teaching. I have a B.A. degree in History and Sociology and a B. Ed. Degree in Education, my special subjects being English and History. I wish to share my knowledge, techniques and methods of teaching with Parents, Teachers and students. With the aid of this book, I want to propagate the importance of classics to everyone, every student, parent and teacher. Through this book I shall introduce to you the various classics that have influenced me, the different skills one can develop by reading good literature.
