Logic for a Ten-Year-Old

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Thank you for reviewing the logic books listed on your website. I notice they’re for middle/high school aged students, which makes sense, given the nature of formal logic. However, I’m hoping to start with younger students to build a foundation. Do you know of any good books on guiding an instructor on the scope and […]

Love flowing out in little gentlenesses

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

J.R. Miller, Daily Bible Readings in the Life of Christ, 1890 I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in My name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward! Mark 9:41 It seems indeed astonishing that God should keep note of such a little thing, as […]

Art With Matching Poetry — The Sea

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Sonnet On The Sea by John Keats (1795 – 1821) It keeps eternal whisperings around Desolate shores, and with its mighty swell Gluts twice ten thousand caverns, till the spell Of Hecate leaves them their old shadowy sound. Often ’tis in such gentle temper found That scarcely will the very smallest shell Be mov’d for […]

Homeschool Voices From the Past Excerpt from an interview with Raymond S.

Have you looked at your spiders today?

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Do you know what we would be doing today if my kids were young again? We’d be in the garden studying Black and Yellow Argiope. Towards the end of August, these particular spiders start to make large — very large — webs in our garden. There are probably 15 in the garden today. We could […]

An Interview with Martin Luther On Classical Education

Monday, September 17th, 2012

The Protestant denominations trace their origins back to Martin Luther, the Christian reformer. His reforms touched on many things, not the least of which was education. Here, cast into the form of an interview, and using his own characteristically forceful and animated words, we gather Luther’s views on the importance of classical education and his […]

Equivocation — A Logical Fallacy

Monday, September 17th, 2012

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master – that’s […]
