||Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning.
Douglas Wilson. - Good News Pub
This book brilliantly describes the mess in state education, addresses the Biblical basis of distinctly Christian learning and calls for a return to classical teaching methods.
||The Trivium : The Liberal Arts of Logic, Grammar, and Rhetoric
Sister Miriam Joseph - Paul Dry Books, Inc.
Opening the door for beginners who seek a thorough grounding in the first arts of human understanding, this book explains the nature of logic, grammar, and rhetoric-the three of the seven liberal arts-and how they relate to one another. In Renaissance universities, the trivium (literally, the crossing of three part way) formed the essence of the liberal arts curriculum. Examined are topics such as the nature and function of language, distinguishing general grammar from special grammar, the study of logic and its relationship to grammar and rhetoric, and applying the concepts of logic, grammar, and rhetoric to literary works.
||Repairing the Ruins
Douglas Wilson - Canon Press
A Classical and Christian Challenge to Modern Education. This collection of essays from teachers and administrators extends the discussion beyond the basics. It not only delves deeper into foundational issues, it focuses on practice, providing concrete instruction for dayschool and homeschool teachers, administrators, parents, and students. Divided into three major sections, the book first sets the framework of Christian worldview thinking. The second section develops the more practical side of the classical model, focusing on specific disciplines. The final section explains how to make this model work in this century.
