Introduction to Classical Education
What classical education is, and why anyone would want to return to this style of teaching and learning.
On the Trivium
What exactly is the trivium, and how do you do it? Find out about the three laws of learning, the connection between learning and the trivium, and the three stages of the trivium -- grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric. Understand the difference between the stages of the trivium and the classical subjects, and if your interest has been piqued, then more information about the historic and modern applications of the trivium to the classical model of education can also be found here.
The Grammar Stage: Grades 1-6
Besides a more in-depth overview of the grammar stage, read articles by experienced homeschooling mothers and other experts regarding the practical application of classical education in each of the subjects in the grammar stage, excellent information on preparing younger children for a great books education by Wes Callihan of Schola Classical Tutorials, and access convenient links to grammar stage curriculum and scope and sequence.

Classical Christian Education Links
There are many resources on the Internet for information which further explains the concept of Christian and classical education, liberal education, the trivium, or the seven liberal arts, expounds on why a return to classical education is needed in our day, examines the history of education in Western Civilization, and documents the failure of modern educationalism. Also linked are pages which offer catalogs, curricula, and services for helping families educate classically, support for classical educators, such as e-mail lists, discussion boards, and newsletters, and aids for teaching the subjects according to the trivium. This is also the place to find the Classical Christian Education Support Loop, home of the 1000 Good Books List, Latin Curriculum Reviews, and more.
Favorite Links to All Over
Okay, so these links have little to do with classical education. Or do they? They are my personal favorites, from art to zoos, for serious study or goofing around: archaeology, art, and cultural links; books and literature links, including the best places on the Internet for finding and buying used books; Christianity and Biblical studies links, which includes my favorite link in the whole favorite links section: Answers in Genesis; home and family links; homeschooling and education links, including CCHs Why We Homeschool Site of the Month; liberty and constitutional republican (with a small r) government links; news and politics links (the 2000 election made me much more aware of what is going on in Washington); research and information links; and links just for fun.
