Book Image Case for Classical Christian Education, The
by Douglas Wilson

America's public schools are failing. Douglas Wilson lays much of the blame for this situation on the current idea that schools can educate in a moral vacuum. In this greatly expanded treatment of a topic he first dealt with in Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning, the author advocates a return to classical Christian education with its discipline, hard work, and recovery of the ancient division of learning geared to child development stages. Readers will see that education is not the world's savior--education itself needs to be saved.

Book Image Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum : A Guide to Catholic Home Education
Laura M. Berquist

Home educator Laura Berquist presents a modern curriculum based on the time-tested philosophy of the classical Trivium—grammar, logic and rhetoric. She has given homeschoolers a valuable tool for putting together a "liberal arts" curriculum that feeds the soul, as well as the intellect. Her approach, covering grades K - 12, is detailed and practical, and it is adaptable by parents and teachers to any situation.


Book Image Teaching the Trivium: Christian Homeschooling in a Classical Style
by Harvey Bluedorn (Author), Laurie Bluedorn (Author)

How can you give your children the tools they need to teach themselves? Long ago students were first taught how to learn. Today, students are taught an encyclopedia of subjects trivia but they are not taught the basic skills of learning: to discover, to reason, and to apply. They are not taught the trivium.

Can you homeschool in a classical style without compromising your Christian principles? Classical Education must be sifted through the critical screen of the Scriptures to be transformed into a Biblical model.

Can you homeschool in a classical style without buckling under the burden? There is only so much time in the day. For every subject, and for every age, we have a workable plan which leaves you free to breathe. You can continue to use other approaches to homeschooling within the framework of classical education.

Is homeschooling about renewing family vision? The family is at the heart of God s plan for restoring Christian culture. Homeschooling is not alternative education. Homeschooling was here first. We want to restore Biblical order to education.


Book Image Thomas Jefferson Education, A: Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the Twenty-first Century
by Oliver Van DeMille

Teachers, students, parents, educators, legislators, leaders and everyone who cares about America's future must read this compelling book.


Book Image Trivium Mastery: The Intersection of Three Roads: How to Give Your Child an Authentic Classical Home Education
by Diane Lockman

Enjoy the simplicity of an authentic classical Christian home education by teaching three simple skill sets to mastery:

Language, Critical Thinking, and Communication

Exposition of errors, though, is not enough. Home school parents need practical instructions for turning the idea of a classical Christian home education into reality. Diane shows you exactly how to teach these three skills through 12 real-life case studies with children ranging in age from 5 to 17 years old. Using her "must-know" checklists, Diane develops customized strategic semester plans for each child, a to-do list for the parents, and a to-do list for the children. Use these personal "makeovers" as a guide to develop your own strategic plans.


Book Image Trivium, The: The Liberal Arts of Logic, Grammar, and Rhetoric
by Miriam, Sister Joseph, Marguerite McGlinn

Opening the door for beginners who seek a thorough grounding in the first arts of human understanding, this book explains the nature of logic, grammar, and rhetoric-the three of the seven liberal arts-and how they relate to one another. In Renaissance universities, the trivium (literally, the crossing of three part way) formed the essence of the liberal arts curriculum. Examined are topics such as the nature and function of language, distinguishing general grammar from special grammar, the study of logic and its relationship to grammar and rhetoric, and applying the concepts of logic, grammar, and rhetoric to literary works.


Book Image Well-Educated Mind, The: A Guide to the Classical Education You Never Had
by Susan Wise Bauer

Surrounded by more books than ever, readers today are frequently daunted by the classics they have left unread. The Well-Educated Mind, debunking our own inferiority complexes, is a wonderful resource for anyone wishing to explore and develop the mind's capacity to read and comprehend the "greatest hits" in fiction, autobiography, history, poetry, and drama.

Far from tossing readers into the swarming sea of classics and demanding that they swim, this book offers brief, entertaining histories of five literary genres, accompanied by detailed instructions on how to read each type. The annotated lists at the close of each chapter—ranging from Cervantes to A. S. Byatt, Herodotus to Paul Gilroy—preview recommended reading and encourage readers to make vital connections between ancient traditions and contemporary writing.

Based on the same classical method as Bauer's terrifically successful The Well-Trained Mind, The Well-Educated Mind provides not only a thorough grounding in the classics but also a widely applicable foundation for self-education.

Book Image Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home, The
by Jessie Wise, Susan Wise Bauer

Teach your child at home or supplement his or her classroom learning --this book provides you with the techniques, curriculum, and resources necessary to ensure that your child's education is the best it can be. As a parent, you worry about your child's education. With thirty students per classroom, even the most dedicated teachers often can't give each student the individual attention so urgently needed, and neither teachers nor parents can control the social environment of many schools.

This book will instruct you, step by step, on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education from preschool through high school; one that will train him or her to read, to think, to understand, to be well-rounded and curious about learning. Through a language-intensive process that organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the child's mind, your child will receive the complete education that today's overcrowded schools are often unable to provide. You do have control over what and how your child learns; The Well-Trained Mind will give you the tools you'll need to teach him or her with confidence and success.
