1 Laura M. Berquist Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum
ip 0898706602 / 9780898706604 Guide to Catholic Home Education
Home educator Laura Berquist presents a modern curriculum based on the time-tested philosophy of the classical Trivium—grammar, logic and rhetoric. She has given homeschoolers a valuable tool for putting together a "liberal arts" curriculum that feeds the soul, as well as the intellect. Her approach, covering grades K - 12, is detailed and practical, and it is adaptable by parents and teachers to any situation. This third revised edition includes a much expanded section for a high school curriculum, and an updated list of resources for all grades. "A treasure for Catholic parents. Laura Berquest offers an overview of the natural stages of intellectual development, and the way they conform to the divisions of the classical Trivium. This is not a program but a method, perfectly adaptable to the needs of every child." — Donna Steichen, Author, Ungodly Rage "This book bridges the gap between a desire for a classical education for our children and the reality of subject by subject, grade by grade curricula that is thorough. It has been an immense help to me." — Kimberly Hahn, Author, Catholic Education—Homeward Bound Length: 225 pages Edition: Paperback

Convinced that a critical part of education is to foster in our children a love of the beautiful and true, teacher and writer Laura Berquist presents this wide selection of poetry for every age level from grades one to twelve. Language development is significantly enriched by exposure to good poetry.

This book contains all the poems recommended in Berquist's best-selling Designing Your Classical Curriculum. The extensive selection includes poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Robert Browning, William Shakespeare, G.K. Chesterton, William Butler Yeats, Robert Frost, and many others. There are three indices to help locate specific poems. This book also includes dictation selections that are useful tools in the development of the child's writing ability, as well as study questions and answers for each poem. "In the avalanche of educational materials today, few resources can approach the value of this book. Laura Berquist offers us the tools to convey to our children the beauty and adventure of literature. Parents and teachers will find this a priceless resource." - Michael O'Brien Length: 493 pages Edition: Paperback
