Christian Homeschooling in a Classical Style
By Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn

How can you give your children the tools they need to teach themselves? Long ago students were first taught how to learn. Today, students are taught an encyclopedia of subjects and trivia  but they are not taught the basic skills of learning: to discover, to reason, and to apply. They are not taught the Trivium.

There is only so much time in the day. For every subject, and for every age, the Bluedorns have a workable plan which leaves you free to breathe. You can continue to use other approaches to home schooling within the framework of Classical Education.

  1. The Transformation of Classical Education: A Biblical Vision for Homeschooling
  2. Who Should Control Education: Parents, or the State?
  3. Should Christians Prefer a Classroom School?
  4. What is the Trivium?

  6. Teaching Logic
  7. Teaching Rhetoric
