Getting Started with Classical Education

Classical educators have a high view of humanity- humans are created in the image of GodGetting Started with Classical Education

While it might not seem like Classical Education has anything to do with Life Skills, I beg to differ. Great educational pedagogy has everything to do with learning and classical education brings great tools to the table to teach your kids anything and everything! Take a listen!

  • Classical educators have a high view of humanity- humans are created in the image of God
  • Classical Educators are Logocentric – the world makes sense
  • Classical educators take responsibility for the western tradition
  • Classical educators integrate subject matter
  • Classical Books and Art
  • Idea-focused teaching

 

THE SEVEN LIBERAL ARTS -the arts of thinking

Trivium The human ability to use verbal symbols (language)

Quadrivium – the basis of philosophy or theology The human ability to use symbolic language such as numbers, shapes and their relations (math)

  • Arithmetic
  • Geometry
  • Music
  • Astronomy

 

Focus on TOOLS of LEARNING (skills) just as much as WHAT YOU ARE LEARNING (content)

Memoriae mater studiorum  -Memory is the Mother of Learning
