The Classical Roundup – December 22nd, 2017

The classical roundup is a group of worthwhile articles, videos, and podcasts that I have found helpful on our journey of exploring classical Christian education in the 21st century.

Preparing for Tomorrow, Today with the Trivium – Learn how the trivium prepares our students for the future ahead. Martin Detweiler and Dr. George Grant again give us a six-minute excellent video.


What is the Trivium? – Martin Detweiler explains what the trivium is. This two-minute video provides a basic overview in a precise manner.

“The Trivium is the foundation of a Classical Education and is comprised of three time-tested phases of learning. Phase 1 – the Grammar Stage teaches young children knowledge, Phase 2 – the Logic Stage teaches teens understanding, and Phase 3 – the Rhetoric Stage teaches young adults wisdom.”


The Invention of Advent – Great article by Dr. Christopher Perrin. “So it was Christ who invented Advent. Our Savior ventured forth, condescending to become man, that we might be redeemed. He calls us to come to him that we may find rest; he convenes us as people, his people; then he calls us to watch, wait, and be ready for when he comes again.”


Forma: Susan Wise Bauer on “Rethinking School” – A bit long, but this hour-long Podcast has Andrew Kern interviewing Susan Wise Bauer school. Worth a listen!
