The First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind series begins with two complete grammar texts (previously one volume), each of which covers a single year. Dictation, narration, picture study, and other classical techniques are used to develop the student's language ability. Each step-by-step lesson leads parents through the simple oral and written projects that build reading, writing, spelling, storytelling, and comprehension skills. Parents can choose to continue the series with two additional levels (Level 3 & 4) both of which include a separate teacher's edition and student workbook (unlike Levels 1 & 2). These latter levels are a complete writing & grammar curriculum, and use four different strands of teaching to impart grammar, punctuation, usage and writing skills, while students learn through memorization, copywork, dictation, narration and grammatical concepts.

Have you lost the art of reading for pleasure? Are there books you know you should read but haven't because they seem too daunting? In The Well-Educated Mind, Susan Wise Bauer provides a welcome and encouraging antidote to the distractions of our age, electronic and otherwise. In her previous book, The Well-Trained Mind, the author provided a road map of classical education for parents wishing to home-school their children, and that book is now the premier resource for home-schoolers. In this new book, Bauer takes the same elements and techniques and adapts them to the use of adult readers who want both enjoyment and self-improvement from the time they spend reading.
The Well-Educated Mind offers brief, entertaining histories of five literary genre - fiction, autobiography, history, drama, and poetry - accompanied by detailed instructions on how to read each type. The annotated lists at the end of each chapter - ranging from Cervantes to A.S. Byatt, Herodotus to Laurel Thatcher Ulrich - preview recommended reading and encourage readers to make vital connections between ancient traditions and contemporary writing.
The Well-Educated Mind reassures those readers who worry that they read too slowly or with below-average comprehension. If you can understand a daily newspaper, there's no reason you can't read and enjoy Shakespeare's Sonnets or Jane Eyre. But no one should attempt to read the "Great Books" without a guide and a plan. Susan Wise Bauer will show you how to allocate time to your reading on a regular basis; how to master a difficult argument; how to make personal and literary judgments about what you read; how to appreciate the resonant links among texts within a genre - what does Anna Karenina owe to Madame Bovary? - and also between genres. Followed carefully, the advice in The Well-Educated Mind will restore and expand the pleasure of the written word. 432 indexed pages, hardcover with dust jacket.

Susan Wise Bauer's The Story of Science: From the Writings of Aristotle to the Big Bang Theory is organized into parts: the beginning of science, the beginning of the scientific method, and the three major fields: the earth, life, and the cosmos. Focusing on science writing rather than the biographies of scientists through the centuries, this riveting foray into the great works of science is a fantastic way to trace the development of science and the way science has been presented and received. Each chapter recommends one or more classic books and provides an account of the discovery, a sketch of the writer, and an explanation of the main issues and concepts. 320 pages, hardcover.
