I am so excited to announce that we are starting back up the Classical Mamas Read series, and that our new book will be Teaching the Trivium by Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn.
This is a book that has been on my 'must-read' list for a while now, and NOW is the time to finally dive in!
What is Teaching the Trivium About?
Teaching the Trivium seeks to answer the following questions:
- How can you give your children the tools they need to teach themselves?
- Can you homeschool in a classical style without compromising your Christian principles?
- Can you homeschool in a classical style without buckling under the burden?
- Is homeschooling about renewing family vision?
And from the preface:
In this book, we lay down a spiritual and philosophical foundation and a practical program for Christian Homeschooling in a classical style. We can't fill in all of the details to satisfy every situation. Instead, we give our principles and suggestions, and we guide to the sources. Our emphasis is communicating the picture and encouraging the practice.
How many of you have read this book?
How many of you would like to read along with me?
How many of you would like to win your very own copy of Teaching the Trivium?
The Bluedorns have graciously provided me with FIVE copies of Teaching the Trivium to give to YOU so that you can participate in this book club! Yeah!
