Teaching Thinking

Monday, December 5th, 2005

Dear Mr. Bluedorn, I have been drawn to the trivium for almost a year or more. I’ve been in an intense search for materials on how to teach people to think. I have been motivated in this search by observing that several of my children do not seem to think deeply despite the fact that […]

The Story of the Weeping Camel

Sunday, December 4th, 2005

I heard about “The Story of the Weeping Camel” on NPR radio. It won some awards as a documentary so I ordered it from Netflix. This movie is cute. The camels are cute and gross and the Mongolian people are strange and similar to us. The desert is very dry and dusty and I wish […]

Unfortunate Omission

Saturday, December 3rd, 2005

It has come to our attention that we neglected to add an important author to our book, Ancient History from Primary Sources: A Literary Timeline. Here is the information if you wish to add him: Aelvinus Presslianus FL. 50-60 B.C. Though only fragments of his writings remain, Presslianus was most recognized for his ability to […]

Delaying Formal Math

Friday, December 2nd, 2005

I found Teaching the Trivium this summer after four years of homeschooling. I was so greatly relieved by the math recommendation because I have totally failed in that area. I used Miqioun only slightly as well as other oral math. My oldest turned 10 in August, and I really did not know what I was […]

In my other blog at I posted some pictures of the kids practicing repelling and ascending on the cliffs at Starved Rock Park in Illinois. They were practicing there in preparation for a trip into a cave in Indiana. This particular cave has a 140 foot drop and is totally dark except for the light […]

Why Homeschool?
