Casting Classical Education as a God-given inheritance you can lay claim to for your children, Diane B. Lockman detours from the standard Christian Classical Education approach. Rejecting Dorothy Sayers' essay and resulting division of children's development into the grammar/rhetoric/logic stages, she advocates doing away with the 12-year model. Instead, she recommends teaching the three simple classical skills: Language, Thought, and Speech. With detailed ideas and instructions on how to teach these three skills, you'll see how 12 real-life studies worked with children 5-13 years old. Strategic semester plants, to-do lists for parents and children, lists of concepts to learn, and other practical advice is included. 297 pages, softcover.
