    All the good ideas are here, but there in an embrionic or initial stage, compared to what they have become in Classical Conversations. Recommend only if you don't have any more recent reading material!

    This is very helpful for what it is - a short introduction to classical education and explanation of Classical Conversations (the homeschooling version).

The book begins by comparing various models of education, eventually highlighting the vast differences between modern public schooling and the classical model. Essentially, the modern model is focused solely on the student himself, its purpose being to prepare him for college (career/money/happiness). This model neglects many things that used to be at the core of western education - * study of philosophy and pursuit of wisdom, ability to evaluate ideas and their consequences * acknowledgement of and engagement with transcendent/spiritual reality * character development * anything that doesn't seem useful to those writing curriculum this year * anything that can't be evaluated by tests * the learner himself, apart from his career track Proponents of classical education believe that being an educated person requires familiarity with classic books, thinkers, artists, and scientists. The classically trained person will also be able to hear and evaluate ideas and current events in light of history and philosophy. She will be well-read, broadly knowledgeable, and able to exercise discernment. She will be a world citizen versed in history, geography, philosophy and debate. Most importantly, classical education values the formation of virtuous human beings (in contrast to a focus on successful workers). The absence of this kind of education is palpable in our culture, particularly as people air opinions about politics and morality. Public schooling's ever-strengthening commitment to political correctness is in direct opposition to mature engagement with ideas and their consequences. I don't believe the classical model is the end-all be-all for education, but it does make sense to me as a good option.

    This is an excellent book and could even be considered as a "primer" for the topic of "Classical Christian Education." The author(s) of this book seek to establish the importance of this type of education and root it in the Christian worldview. The reading is easy and very practical. It provides some steps that every family can take as well as examples of the structure of some families educating their children in this way.

    This book has the potential to radically change one's perspective of learning and how to teach. I deeply appreciated the introduction, which emohasized that God must be the origin of all true learning, and all true learning must point back to God. This is something I am passionate about! Another point made early on that I deeply appreciated was that all bodies of knowledge are connected. If they all originate and point back to the same source, this makes sense! It seems a deep disservice to stud This book has the potential to radically change one's perspective of learning and how to teach.

Another point made early on that I deeply appreciated was that all bodies of knowledge are connected. If they all originate and point back to the same source, this makes sense! It seems a deep disservice to students to compartmentalize leaening, instead of emphasizing how things are connected. This book proposes the Trivium method of schooling to acxomplish quality education. It was fascinating to learn about this Medieval learning strategy. I would recommend this book, especially to anyone involved in education - educators and parents like.

    A succinct guide to the precepts of Classical Education, why classical education works, and how to implement it in the home. Classical education is based on the Trivium, stages of learning, that lead to knowledge. The stages of learning result in an education that not only provides knowledge, but also provides children with the ability to use knowledge and to communicate that knowledge. Using a Christian approach to classical education allows children to be educated while pointing all knowledge A succinct guide to the precepts of Classical Education, why classical education works, and how to implement it in the home. Classical education is based on the Trivium, stages of learning, that lead to knowledge. The stages of learning result in an education that not only provides knowledge, but also provides children with the ability to use knowledge and to communicate that knowledge. Using a Christian approach to classical education allows children to be educated while pointing all knowledge and the ability to gain knowledge to God. Glorifying God while learning about the world is the point of the Classical Christian Education. This small manual gives an overview of how to implement this type of education effectively in the home. An non-intimidating guide.

    This book is an excellent and concise overview of the Classical Christian educational model. It contrasts this approach with our modern day educational model and describes both the primary components of the Trivium as well as the rationale behind them that closely matches the abilities and interests of children as they grow and develop. The book is written using an easy-to-understand and compelling style.

The book is written using an easy-to-understand and compelling style. The easy way to describe the three parts of the Trivium (Grammar, Dialetic, & Rhetoric) is by the progression from knowledge to understanding to wisdom. The Classical Christian model is designed to help students to learn how to learn any subject and for them to see the interconnections between the subjects that are far less mutually exclusive than how they are typically perceived.

    a succinct little book that outlines the why, the how, and the what of classical Christian education. Street a year of CC, I feel like this would have been a great primer to read when we were still debating the merits of homeschool, and what that might look like for our family. This year I was asked to read it as part of my preparation to be a tutor trainer at practicum, and I'm so glad I did. just wish I had read it sooner! docking one star because toward the end it mostly felt like an ad for C a succinct little book that outlines the why, the how, and the what of classical Christian education.

    A great introduction to Classical Christian Education, particularly homeschooling, and particularly Classical Conversations. It's a simple layout, includes charts, and provides lists of additional resources. For those just starting out on their own research of the classical model, this is a great place to start.

    Very fast, quick read to get an overview of how it might work for your family. A great jumping-off point to get your feet in the water fast without feeling like you need to read every book on it out there. There are other books with more detail to follow-up with! "The Core," "Teaching the Trivium," etc... Very fast, quick read to get an overview of how it might work for your family.
