    needs updating
    February 17, 2015

    The trivium is explained very well along with ideas about how to teach the trivium at home. However, there are not enough resources for current classical teaching methods nor ideas for the modern era. The authors use many ideas and resources from the 1700's through the 1980s but little to none for the current area. If we are to give our children the tools needed for the world today, this book needs updating. The authors also give an explanation as to how public education has failed and laws that were current when the book was written. But public education has changed since then and many educational reforms have been put into place at both the national and state levels. However, the christian values and the implementation of the Bible are timeless.

    This book has become a valuable resource in understanding the proper mode of education. I am an adult filling in the gaps of my public school "education", it is disheartening to see the downward trend in quality of public school "education". I am convinced the only way to save the young minds of this country is to get them out of the public system and school them at home using this book as a guide.

    This book is chalk full of valuable information. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes Classical Homeschooling but is first and foremost concerned about their child's salvation. Excellent resource!

    As a former Valedictorian with a relatively positive public school experience people are often surprised to learn of my choice to homeschool, especially since my faith was not a factor when I made that decision. My reasons hinged on the fact that, though I got excellent grades, I knew and understood very little that I could apply practically. I was skilled at memorization and test-taking, making me a success. Harvey & Laurie Bluedorns Teaching the Trivium focuses on this very concern.How can you give your children the tools they need to teach themselves? Long ago students were first taught how to learn. Today, students are taught an encyclopedia of subjects trivia but they are not taught the basic skills of learning: to discover, to reason, and to apply. They are not taught the Trivium. ~BluedornTeaching the Trivium is 640 pages explaining the whys as well as the hows of educating your child Classically without compromising your Christian principles. Youll find schedules, courses of study, principles for teaching literature and much more. If you desire to raise Godly children who are able to teach themselves anything: to discover, to reason , to apply then this book is a must-read. Whether youre sold on Classical Education or not youll find much to consider and apply.

    What the Bluedorns have spent years researching and perfecting, we simply receive as a blessing from the Lord! Teaching the Trivium did not bring me complexity and stress but FREEDOM! Freedom to take ownership of teaching my children! Freedom and confidence because it is bathed in scripture! And we can always be confident in the Word of God. Like a cool glass of water on a hot summer day Teaching the Trivium gets to the reality and practicality of Christ-centered Classical Education. It will nourish your tired researching soul and fill you with joy as you are bathed in scripture and guided through the process of teaching your children.Teaching the Trivium is first and most importantly a Christ-centered approach to teaching our children at home. Second it reveals the importance of the classical approach of learning. Finally it encourages you through a laid back approach of teaching to: keep the critical subjects at the forefront. As if this is not enough for all of us who are buried under piles of dead end research, Teaching the Trivium also discerns what the appropriate age is to train our wonderful children. By the end of the first several chapters you will be able to delight in the adventure of homeschooling. I am reminded each time I pick up Teaching the Trivium how the Lord has for years brought pioneers like the Bluedorns ahead of us to pave the way and pass on their delight in training and instructing. Our life has been so blessed in this short while we have had access to the Bluedorns material. We have recommended it to every one we know, so we wanted to take this opportunity to recommend it to everyone else!
