Preparing for a Classical Education


I love the classical model of education.  I love the idea of teaching children how to learn so they can eventually learn for themselves in any situation.  I love the idea of teaching history chronologically and incorporating many subjects together instead of segmenting them.  I have wanted to teach my children classically since, well, before they were born =)  I am now blessed with two little ones (currently 3 and 2 years old), but their physical abilities, attention span, and mental capacity are not ready yet for true classical teaching, so what do we do?  We prepare them for a classical education...

I'm excited to be guest posting today over at Homegrown Learners.  To read the rest of this post, click here

  3. Hi Amy, I feel like your style of homeschooling is very close to mine. More importantly, I can tell you hold your children in high regard. You know they are capable of so much more than the current culture expects of them. Thanks for your insights on preparing children for a great education and linking up at Mom's Library!
