Homeschool Basics: Christian Homeschooling in a Classical Style – Free for 3 Days

This 43-page ebook is an excerpt from the book Teaching the Trivium: Christian Homeschooling in a Classical Style by Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn. The ebook lays out a suggested course of study and guidelines for teaching children below age ten.

You can purchase the ebook on Amazon for $1.99, but from September 12-14 you can download the ebook for free, plus receive another Trivium Pursuit ebook.

Teaching the Trivium: Christian Homeschooling in a Classical Style is not just about classical education — it gives a workable plan for every subject and for every age which avoids homeschool burnout.

Some of the distinctives of Teaching the Trivium include:

  • an emphasis on reading aloud to your children
  • studying logic from ages ten through high school, rather than using it as a one or two year supplement
  • ancient literature from a Christian perspective
  • why informal math or grammar before age ten may be a better choice
  • how to give your children the tools they need to teach themselves
  • how to continue using other approaches to homeschooling within the framework of classical education

Sign up for the Homeschooling with the Trivium newsletter — each newsletter contains freebies, book reviews, Homeschooling Q & A, read-aloud suggestions, tips on teaching Latin, Greek, and logic, and contests with book-giveaways. 

Here is the special offer:

On September 12-14 (these three days only) the ebook will be free. In addition, if you download the ebook sometime during the three day period and write an Amazon review, we’ll send you one of the ebooks from the Trivium Pursuit catalog (in PDF format).

You can choose one ebook from the following:

  • Vocabulary Bridges from English to Latin & Greek by Harvey Bluedorn
  • A Review of English Grammar for Students of Biblical Greek and Other Ancient Languages by Harvey Bluedorn
  • Cómo Enseñar el Trivium — Educación Cristiana en Casa en un Estilo Clásico by Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn
