Home educator Laura Berquist presents a modern curriculum based on the time-tested philosophy of the classical Trivium-grammar, logic and rhetoric. She has given homeschoolers a valuable tool for putting together a "liberal arts" curriculum that feeds the soul, as well as the intellect. Her approach, covering grades K - 12, is detailed and practical, and it is adaptable by parents and teachers to any situation.
This third revised edition includes a much expanded section for a high school curriculum, and an updated list of resources for all grades.
"A treasure for Catholic parents. Laura Berquest offers an overview of the natural stages of intellectual development, and the way they conform to the divisions of the classical Trivium. This is not a program but a method, perfectly adaptable to the needs of every child."
- Donna Steichen, Author, Ungodly Rage
"This book bridges the gap between a desire for a classical education for our children and the reality of subject by subject, grade by grade curricula that is thorough. It has been an immense help to me."
- Kimberly Hahn, Author, Catholic Education-Homeward Bound
