Awakening Wonder: A Classical Guide to Truth, Goodness and Beauty demonstrates how coaching students to value and work towards the transcendent values of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty is an important part of true education. By removing the study of these values from the classroom, modern schools stopped cultivating virtue and instead communicated a mechanistic vision of the world that saw students as products to be produced. The restoration of these values is at the heart of the renewal of the classical education system. In this book you'll discover the history and development of these values and how they redeem our senses and sanctify our imaginations. Teachers will also learn how to incorporate these values into their teaching to awaken awe and wonder in both themselves and their students. 128 pages, softcover.

This small book (45 pages) is an ideal introduction to classical education written by the headmaster of a classical academy in Pennsylvania.

The book is written in a colloquial, engaging style, with several anecdotes, diagrams and charts. This book is especially recommended to parents just beginning their examination of classical education.
