Teaching the Trivium: Christian Homeschooling in a Classical Style is not just about classical education -- it gives foundational reasons for why homeschooling should be your first choice.

Some of the distinctives of Teaching the Trivium include:

--an emphasis on reading aloud to your children
--studying logic from ages ten through high school, rather than using it as a one or two year supplement
--ancient literature from a Christian perspective -- is it really necessary to read Homer?
--choices in language study, with an emphasis on Biblical Greek
--why INFORMAL math or grammar before age ten may be a better choice
--how to give your children the tools they need to teach themselves
--how to homeschool in a classical style without buckling under the burden
--a workable plan for every subject and for every age which avoids homeschool burnout -- there is only so much time in the day
--how to continue using other approaches to homeschooling within the framework of classical education
--homeschooling is not alternative education -- homeschooling was here first

Sign up for the Homeschooling with the Trivium newsletter -- each newsletter contains freebies, book reviews, Homeschooling Q & A, read-aloud suggestions, tips on teaching Latin, Greek, and logic, and contests with book-giveaways.
