The Well-Trained Mind

The curriculum of the Angelicum Academy is based on principles of classical education. While there is a wealth of knowledge on the AA website concerning the scope of the program, I was interested in finding more information on what a classical homeschool looks like and how it functions. A brief search in Amazon's Kindle store brought me to The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (Third Edition).

Needless to say, I am devouring this book. It provides such a beautiful picture of classical education while being realistic and forthright about the amount of work it entails for the home educator. The Well-Trained Mind details schedules, techniques, and resources for all levels of home education, from infancy through adolescence. It is truly a complete resource for the homeschool.
