An Introduction to C.S. Lewis' The Abolition of Man

How important are universal values? An engaging installment of a larger playlist includes a summary of C.S. Lewis' The Abolition of Man, one that explores this very question and allows for high schoolers to reflect on their own lives, education, and morals. The YouTube video breaks down complex information into easy-to understand-concepts. Complete with closed captioning, the video encourages pupils to advance at their own pace, allowing for differentiation for all learners.
