The Conversation Book Review

This article is in collaboration with Classical Conversations.

If you have been looking into homeschooling for any length of time, you have probably heard of Classical education. But what IS classical education? How do you actually do it?


Leigh A. Bortins, the founder of Classical Conversations, has just added a new book to her how-to trilogy of classical education — The Conversation: Challenging Your Student with a Classical Education.

If you have a high school student, will have one sooner than you want to think about (!), or just don’t understand what starting with littles will end up looking like at the end, The Conversation will clear it all up. Not only does Ms. Bortins encourage you on your journey through the intimidating high school years, but she defines the Rhetoric stage of learning AND tells you how to do it, subject by subject.

Rhetoric is the use of knowledge and understanding to perceive wisdom, pursue virtue, and proclaim truth.

Change the lives of your children and everyone they come into contact with by arming them with truth and understanding and the ability to share that truth with others. The Conversation will tell you how to do it.
