Have you ever wondered what the similarities and differences are between the various methods of classical homeschooling? Well, that is exactly what we discussed in our most recent Facebook Live Event. We took a closer look at Charlotte Mason, Dorothy Sayers/The Well-Trained Mind, and The Liberal Arts Tradition.
If you missed the event, catch the recording below and join the conversation. I have also included some links and notes below the video that were mentioned during the talk.

(This book is out of print, so it is harder to find. There are a couple on Amazon, but they are kind of pricey. Still worth it if you are really wanting to wrap your head around where Dorothy Sayers was coming from when she wrote her famous essay.)
The Well-Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer
The Liberal Arts Tradition by Clark & Jain
Consider This: Charlotte Mason & the Classical Tradition by Karen Glass
Norms & Nobility by David Hicks
Awakening Wonder: A Classical Guide to Truth, Goodness, and Beauty by Dr. Stephen Turley
Lastly, for those of you who wanted it, here is the prayer I read at the end. Called ‘A Prayer for Before Study’ and can be found in most Eastern Orthodox prayer books.
“Lord our God, the source of all wisdom and truth, send down upon us the Spirit of truth, the Spirit of wisdom, the Spirit of discernment. Enlighten the eyes of our souls with the light of Your knowledge, that we may learn from Your wisdom and grow in virtue, to the glory of Your name. Amen.”
