Teaching the Trivium
by: Harvey & Laurie Bluedorn

Our Price: $27.00 SOLD OUT


I read this book and it is EXCELLENT! One of my favorite aspects of this book is that it is packed with Scripture to support the classical philosophy & approach. The Bluedorns make a great case to homeschool your children, not bring public school to your home.

Below is a review by Christine Miller of Her review sums up my view of this terrific source:

Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.00 until you have this book. If you can only get one book on this page, make it this one. The Bluedorns have done an excellent job explaining the Biblical foundation of homeschooling, of Christian education, and how to apply the Trivium to a uniquely Biblical, Christian education at home. “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. Because we are Christians, we do not want to pursue non-Christian goals. Classical Education must be sifted through the critical screen of the Scriptures to be transformed into the Biblical model.” The Biblical model is thoroughly explained and applied throughout the book. Packed with Scripture, guides for teaching discovering (grammar), reasoning (dialectic), and applying (rhetoric), and many, many practical how-to’s and helps of all kinds, with an out of this world appendix of resources, this is the Well-Trained Mind for those that want their children to have a uniquely and thoroughly Christian education and grounding in a Biblical worldview (that’s all of us, right?). It is inspiring, encouraging, and hopeful -- the Bluedorns have lived this life with five children, the youngest of which is 17.
