The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (Fourth Edition)

A revised and updated edition of the perennial bestseller that sparked a home school movement.

Since its original publication, this now-classic guide to taking charge of your child’s education has been the number-one resource for parents and students who home-school―or want to supplement a classroom education. Veteran home educators Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer organize learning around the maturing capacity of a child’s mind and define the three stages of learning: the elementary school “grammar stage,” the middle school “logic stage,” and the high school “rhetoric stage.” Using the book’s detailed recommendations, any parent can instruct a student in reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music―from kindergarten through high school.

This newly revised edition contains expanded curricula recommendations, gives access to a new supplemental website with additional resources, answers questions about home education, and provides advice on vital practical matters such as working with your local school board, preparing a high school transcript, and applying to colleges.
