The Core by Leigh A. Bortins

I am a firm believer that there are core areas of knowledge that everyone should master. In every area of life - work, home, church, relationships - a base of knowledge/grammar is essential. There is a classical model for education that has proved successful for centuries, yet modern education has forsaken the basic three tenants of successive learning as a child advances from elementary, middle to high-school and beyond. The way a child develops aligns with the classical model: beginning with a foundation of grammar, next rhetoric and finally dialectic. This method of education gives the strongest foundation for children, but the principles also apply to adults. The mindset of growth - learning how to learn, being a lifelong learner and challenging yourself to apply what’s being learned are invaluable to everyone.

The implications in this book far surpass the classroom, homeschoolers, education and children… I’d love to hear @mikeschmitz and @joebuhlig read and unpack this book!
