Teach your child at home or supplement his or her classroom learning-this book provides you with the techniques, curriculum, & resources necessary to ensure that your child's education is the best it can be. As a parent, you worry about your child's education. With thirty students per classroom, even the most dedicated teachers often can't give each student the individual attention so urgently needed, & neither teachers nor parents can control the social environment of many schools. Is your child getting lost in the system, becoming bored, losing his or her natural eagerness to learn? Maybe it's time to take charge of your child's education-by doing it yourself. This book 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 & curious about learning. Through a language-intensive process that organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the child's mind, your child will receive the complete education that today's overcrowded schools are often unable to provide. You do have control over what & how your child learns; The Well-Trailed Mind will give you the tools you'll need to teach him or her with confidence & success.

- Publisher An engaging, accessible guide to educating yourself in the classical tradition. SURROUNDED BY MORE BOOKS than ever, readers today are frequently daunted by the classics they have left unread. The Well-Educated Mind, debunking our own inferiority complexes, is a wonderful resource for anyone wishingto explore and develop the mind's capacity to read and comprehend the "greatest hits" in fiction, autobiography, history, poetry, and drama. Far from tossing readers into the swarming sea of classics and demanding that they swim, this book offers brief, entertaining histories of five literary genres, accompanied by detailed instructions on how to read each type. The annotated lists at the close of each chapter--ranging from Cervantes to A. S. Byatt, Herodotus to Paul Gilroy--preview recommended reading and encourage readers to make vital connections between ancient traditions and contemporary writing. Based on the same classical method as Bauer's terrifically successful The Well-Trained Mind, The Well-Educated Mind provides not only a thorough grounding in the classics but also a widely applicable foundation for self-education.
