Trivium Mastery : The Intersection of Three Roads: How to Give Your Child an Authentic Classical Home Education
You may not know it, but you've been robbed. Classical Christian education, your rightful inheritance, has been stolen from you by educational bureaucrats. Generations of well-meaning parents and innocent children never received their intended bequest. However, the "new" method that is being popularized in the homeschooling community looks more like the public school paradigm than the original classical model. In her research, Diane discovered that the primary premise upon which this "neoclassical" method is based has no evidentiary support other than one woman's personal experience. Speculation and hearsay fuel the rumor that has become an urban legend. Countless home school parents labor under this burdensome method when they could be enjoying 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. National leaders on two continents have been successfully trained by the classical method for over two thousand years. At this critical time in history, the common twelve-year educational paradigm cannot begin to prepare your children for the calling on their lives. Like Diane, you and your family can recover your inheritance. What are you waiting for?
