A guide on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education at home—from preschool through high school.Veteran home educator Susan Wise Bauer outlines the classical pattern of education called the trivium, which organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the child's mind and comprises three stages: the elementary school "grammar stage," the middle school "logic stage," and the high school "rhetoric stage." Using this theory as your model, you'll be able to instruct your child—whether full-time or as a supplement to classroom education—regardless of your own aptitude in any subjects. Thousands of parents and teachers have already used the detailed book lists and methods described in The Well-Trained Mind to create a truly superior education for the children in their care. This new revised edition contains an updated chapter on applying to colleges and links to a new set of online resources. You do have control over what and how your child learns. The Well-Trained Mind will give you the tools you'll need to teach your child with confidence and success.
