There are resources available on the grammar stage of classical education, but much fewer books on the rhetoric stage. The Question focuses on the transition from the absorbing stage of childhood education to the need for an adult to ask questions in order to encourage students' thinking skills. This book is divided into two parts. Part I provides an overview of classical education that focuses on the dialectic; Part II describes the dialectic art within specific subjects. Covering the theoretical and practical bases of the latter stage of classical education, this book will enable you to hold dialectical conversations that function as an essential part of the learning process. Appendices provide model questions and resources. 223 pages, softcover.
