Product Description

As parents, it is easy for us to look back and see the shortcomings of our own education. Since many of us were taught in public schools, we often have a pretty good idea of what we don't want our children to learn. But what exactly should we give them instead?

The authors of Repairing the Ruins, a group of experienced teachers and schools administrators, faced this same question when they first embarked on the journey of education. They found a tried and true answer in classical Christian education. Here they explain what makes classical Christian education different from modern methods and why it offers a distinctly Christian alternative. Building upon this foundation, the authors provide parents with the "Whys and Hows" of the Trivium, tips on planning curriculum, wisdom in designing education to serve the heart as well as the mind, and advice on starting up schools.

For all who have ever wondered where to begin with their children's education, Repairing the Ruins comes alongside with words of comfort and direction.

Publisher's Description

Classical and Christian education is moving into high gear. This collection of essays from teachers and administrators extends the discussion beyond the basics. It not only delves deeper into foundational issues, it also focuses on practice, providing concrete instruction for dayschool and homeschool teachers, administrators, parents, and students. It offers no advice on how to fix any actual repairs your school building might need. Divided into three major sections, the book first sets the framework of Christian worldview thinking. The second section develops the more practical side of the classical model, focusing on specific disciplines. The final section explains how to make this model work in this century. Contributors include Marlin Detweiler, Tom Garfield, Douglas Jones, Jim Nance, Chris Schlect, Tom Spencer, and Douglas Wilson.
