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

Is your child getting lost in the system, becoming bored, losing his or her natural eagerness to learn? If so, it may be time to take charge of your child’s education—by doing it yourself. The Well-Trained Mind will instruct you, step by step, on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education from preschool through high school—one that will train him or her to read, to think, to understand, to be well-rounded and curious about learning. Veteran home educators Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise outline the classical pattern of education called the trivium, which organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the child’s mind and comprises three stages: the elementary school “grammar stage,” when the building blocks of information are absorbed through memorization and rules; the middle school “logic stage,” in which the student begins to think more analytically; and the high-school “rhetoric stage,” where the student learns to write and speak with force and originality. Using this theory as your model, you’ll be able to instruct your child—whether full-time or as a supplement to classroom education—in all levels of reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music, regardless of your own aptitude in those subjects. Thousands of parents and teachers have already used the detailed book lists and methods described in The Well-Trained Mind to create a truly superior education for the children in their care. This extensively revised fourth edition contains completely updated curricula and book lists, links to an entirely new set of online resources, new material on teaching children with learning challenges, cutting-edge math and sciences recommendations, answers to common questions about home education, and advice on practical matters such as standardized testing, working with your local school board, designing a high-school program, preparing transcripts, and applying to colleges. You do have control over what and how your child learns. The Well-Trained Mind will give you the tools you’ll need to teach your child with confidence and success.

F. Scott Fitzgerald: Der große Gatsby, Neuausgabe 2018 || Wir befinden uns an der Ostküste der USA, im Jahr 1922. Es ist die aufregende Zeit der "Roaring Twenties", als in New York Wolkenkratzer aus dem Boden wachsen und die Menschen lebenshungrig den Tanz auf dem Vulkan üben. Auf Long Island lebt man in mondäner Dekadenz, die harten Seiten des Lebens haben hier keinen Platz. Der junge Börsenmakler Nick Carraway bezieht auf der Halbinsel, die New York vorgelagert ist, ein kleines Haus, das er sich mit seinem schmalen Salär gerade noch leisten kann. In der Villa seines Nachbarn werden alle paar Tage monströse Partys mit Hunderten von Gästen gefeiert; der Gastgeber aber, ein gewisser Gatsby, bleibt im Hintergrund. Doch eines Tages steht Gatsby mit seinem riesigen Wagen vor Carraways Häuschen und bittet ihn wenig später um einen merkwürdigen Gefallen ... || Fitzgeralds Kultbuch wurde mehrmals verfilmt, u. a. 1974 mit Robert Redford und 2013 mit Leonardo DiCaprio als Gatsby.

Many learning standards and core curricula demand that students demonstrate what they know. Students cannot demonstrate if they sit passively in classrooms, listening to their teachers' lectures. These standards call for a different set of teaching practices, based on constructivist theory. Constructivism is based on a body of research that supports the position that understanding can't be poured from one person's head to another's like water and that each of us creates our own picture of the world through our own personal engagement with it. This book provides practical ways to apply constructivism in a teacher's day-to-day classroom life.

This book is not an assessment guide. It aims to help students build a systematic approach to tackling essay writing for the GCE O-level English Language paper. Written specifically for Singapore students preparing for the new 1128 Syllabus, the book incorporates a step-by-step method to teach students to write better paragraphs and essays. Students who wish to excel in the art of writing will find its contents particularly useful in helping them to polish their writing skills, leading them invariably to getting a higher score in the examination. In writing this book, I have used the experience gained from more than a decade of classroom teaching in government and private schools in Singapore. Over the years, I have tweaked my teaching methods in response to the changing times and the different cohorts of students under my charge. The improved teaching methods that I have adopted in this book, hopefully, will benefit students in search of time-saving methods they can tap to improve their writing skills. The skills taught here are also useful for other academic writing.
