Descrizione prodotto


In the past, correct spelling, the multiplication tables, the names of the state capitals and the American presidents were basics that all children were taught in school. Today, many children graduate without this essential knowledge. Most curricula today follow a haphazard sampling of topics with a focus on  political correctness instead of teaching students how to study. Leigh Bortins, a leading figure in the homeschooling community, is having none of it. She believes that there are core areas of knowledge that are essential to master. Without knowing the multiplication tables, children can’t advance to algebra. Without mastery of grammar, students will have difficulty expressing themselves. Without these essential building blocks of knowledge, students may remember information but they will never possess a broad and deep understanding of how the world works. In this book, Bortins gives parents the tools and methodology to implement a rigorous, thorough, and broad curriculum based on the classical model, including:

• Rote memorization to cement knowledge

• Systematic learning of geography, historical facts, and timelines

• Reading the great books and seminal historical documents
   instead of adaptations and abridged editions

• Rigorous training in math and the natural sciences

5.0 su 5 stelle Great Information 11 febbraio 2014
Di Carrie H - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I have read this book a couple of times over the last year or so and will most likely read it again this summer, before we start homeschool in August. Ms. Bortins style is easy to read and filled with a "you can do this" attitude that I liked. I had been homeschooling for a while before I picked up this book, but I learned so much. Mostly about just calming down and making a good, detailed plan (and following through with it, of course). I loosely follow the Well Trained Mind and found that this book works well in tandem with the information gathered from WTM. WTM gave me a schedule to follow, but The Core gave me the tools to make it work.

5.0 su 5 stelle Worth buying, reading and re-reading!! 1 ottobre 2014

What, another "instruction" book about classical education? Probably a snoozer, right? Wrong!!! This book is worth its weight in gold. It is a guide to helping set up your curriculum using a Classical education (more in line with Classical Conversations). It is detailed enough that I could implement the ideas, but not overwhelming that would make me just shelve it. It is written in a manner that doesn't feel like a "to do" book, but like sitting down with Leigh with a cup of coffee and having a conversation with her where she goes over what she does at home.

5.0 su 5 stelle This book has so much information and I like the format 22 agosto 2015

This book has so much information and I like the format. Another thing I like is that is encouraging to parents who are not able to teach their children at home. Though I would love to do so, I can't at this time. I still feel like I am getting a lot of helpful information to supplement what I feel they are missing in public school.

5.0 su 5 stelle Clear Picture of Classical Education 19 maggio 2014
Di Raquel Arutian - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Leigh Bortins is a such a clear communicator in her writing about classical education. I like how she gives a background of this philosophy and then proceeds to show you what that might look like applied. This book brought everything I had been learning and teaching in my home together with a clear picture of what to tweak so that we can truly have a "stick in the sand" Christian education. I appreciate her wisdom on simplifying home education from too much curriculum, yet being purposeful in what we do use. Thank you Leigh!

4.0 su 5 stelle An easy to implement guide to classical education 22 agosto 2010

I'd like to give a little background that I hope will aid in my book review. I am embarking on my 7th year of homeschooling. I have tried to classically educate my children since the beginning. After reading Susan Wise Bauer's "The Well-Trained Mind" I was excited, but thoroughly overwhelmed at how to implement all of her wonderful ideas. I struggled for 4 years on my own, and always felt as though I never accomplished all that "TWTM" laid out. At the end of each year I felt I had failed because we did not complete all that we "should have".

Then I was introduced to Classical Conversations. What a breath of fresh air! My children thrived. Our homeschool accomplished more, my children learned more, they enjoyed it more, and it required less effort on my part. THIS was what I had been struggling for four years to achieve.

This summer I read The Core. I believe this book can help many families who want to see their children truly educated, whether in the home, or in a brick and mortar school. For new homeschoolers, or those new to the idea of classical education, she explains classical education well and utilizes a common sense approach. The book is laid out by subject matter and shows how to encourage your children to truly learn. She also provides ideas that families who aren't homeschooling can use in their children's education.

As a veteran homeschooler, I was encouraged. This book reminded me to focus on the best things and not get distracted with good things. As a mom of multiple chidren, she encouraged me how to truly do a "one room schoolhouse", thereby simplifying my life. She has also graciously given us a glimpse into her own homeschool by laying out what has worked within her family. I appreciate that and am confident that I can implement something similar in our family.
