This 45-page booklet is an ideal introduction to classical education that traces the history of classical education and describes its modern renaissance. The booklet also highlights the distinctive elements of the movement, including its emphasis on teaching grammar, logic, and rhetoric (the trivium); the role and benefit of classical language study; and the extraordinary achievements of students who are receiving a classical education. This engaging and conversational booklet includes anecdotes, diagrams, and charts, and is especially recommended to parents just beginning their examination of classical education.
This is an excellent guide for parents, students, and educators as you try to understand what to expect in a classical school. Follow Zoë as she travels from kindergarten to twelfth grade, studying grammar, Latin, logic, and rhetoric. Zoë describes the embodiment of a classical education in assignments, relationships, and classrooms. Much more than charts, diagrams, and simple descriptions, this narrative will help bring the classical school experience to life. Teachers and administrators will also benefit from hearing the voice of a student who has completed this pilgrimage.
This staple book for educators and those interested in education introduces readers to a paradigm for understanding classical education that transcends the familiar three-stage pattern of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Instead, this book describes the liberal arts as a central part of a larger and more robust paradigm of classical education that should consist of piety, gymnastic, music, liberal arts, philosophy, and theology. The book also recovers the means by which classical educators developed more than just intellectual virtue (by means of the seven liberal arts) but holistically cultivated the mind, body, will, and affections. This is a must-read for educators who want to take a second big step toward recovering the tradition of classical education.
