Product Description

Casting Classical Education as a God-given inheritance you can lay claim to for your children, Diane B. Lockman detours from the standard Christian Classical Education approach. Rejecting Dorothy Sayers' essay and resulting division of children's development into the grammar/rhetoric/logic stages, she advocates doing away with the 12-year model. Instead, she recommends teaching the three simple classical skills: Language, Thought, and Speech. With detailed ideas and instructions on how to teach these three skills, you'll see how 12 real-life studies worked with children 5-13 years old. Strategic semester plants, to-do lists for parents and children, lists of concepts to learn, and other practical advice is included. 297 pages, softcover.

    If you've been homeschooling for some years, you would know that there are several homeschooling philosophies. There's Charlotte Mason, unschooling, eclectic, unit studies, Montessori and then there's Classical Education. I have to admit that I did not really understand much about this particular kind of educational philosophy. In fact, I had the chance to review a complete classical curriculum in the past, but I hardly understood it! Despite having read pages and pages of its explanation, the how's and the why's, I can't say that I have understood it. Actually, it left me even more befuddled than before.

    Now, I have the opportunity to understand Classical Home Education once more through Trivium Mastery - The Intersection of Three Roads: How To Give Your Child An Authentic Classical Home Education by Diane B. Lockman. Let me first say that out of all the homeschool books that I have read so far, Trivium Mastery has clearly brought home to me what my children needed to learn and how to go about it.

    Ms. Diane Lockman, a CPA and a homeschool mom, first talks about the foundation of Classical Education, how it has evolved to follow the model of public school system of education, and how to reclaim in our homes the true classical education we can give to our children.

    The first part of the book talks about the intersection of the three roads to Classical Education. The three roads being Language, Thought and Speech. She says that these three roads must be taught to our children to the point of mastery. There are no grade levels in Classical Education, no particular years that you can say your child is educated. But mastery of these three roads by the student will fully equip him to keep on learning throughout his lifetime.

    The second half of the books shows five family case studies. Each family is unique and all wanted to transition to classical home education. Ms. Lockman shares here how the families were able to transition to classical home education.

    Surprisingly, we can do the same thing because the last part of the book has the same assessment tools that Ms. Lockman uses to evaluate the families. Not only that, Ms. Lockman's website, The Classical Scholar, has a free Parent Workshop that we can do ourselves. The workshop will allow you to evaluate your family's strengths and weaknesses and will show you where your child is weak academically and where the child is already strong.

    I've done the workshop myself and even though it took me some time to finish it, I'm really glad that I did it. After completing the workshop, it became clear to me what my children still needed to learn. Now that I have a better understanding of Classical Home Education, I am no longer intimidated by it and am assured that I can give my children the quality education that they need. If I can read only one book about homeschooling, this is it.

    Thanks to Ms. Lockman for agreeing to send me her book for free for review purposes. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated here are entirely mine.
