A practical, easy read showing the classical method in action with suggestions for home education as well as possible applications for classroom teachers who work in classical or non-classical schools.

Excellent read for those who wish to educate "classically." Bortins explains the advantages of a classical education. She provides ideas and outlines for methods of classical education in reading, writing, math, geography, history, science and fine arts. Highly recommended.
