Teaching the Trivium
I have just finished reading Teaching the Trivium a couple of weeks ago. We had a wonderful weekend at a lodge and it was wonderful just to rest and enjoy the end of summer. I absolutely LOVE this book. It is extremely well written and is full of wisdom and inspiration. The chapters fulfilled every desire and it was if it finally "clicked". I have been praying on a different way to homeschool and I love the CM method. Teaching the Trivium has given me ways to incorporate CM and Christian Classical together. Although we are definitely more of a CM homeschool, I will use the suggestions and tools in this book to compliment our techniques and style. I had planned on passing this book to a friend that was admiring it while I was reading it. However, I think this is a lifer. I think I will always use it as a reference. I am going to bless my friend with her very own copy for her shelf. Definitely worth the cost.
