The Classical Trivium is Grammar, Logic & Rhetoric. This reflects the natural progression of learning described in the Bible: Knowledge, Understanding & Wisdom. We show why you should and how you can teach your own child Latin, Greek and Logic.
The different approaches to homeschooling (Charlotte Mason, Unit Study, Moore Formula, Classical, Principle, etc.) all fit within the framework of the Trivium. Your child can skip "formal schooling" for grades K through 5 and yet do 6th grade academics at age 10. We offer a Suggested Course of Study for all ages and describe ten important things to do with your child before age ten.
About the Bluedorns:
Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn are the parents of five children: Nathaniel (25), Johannah (23), Hans (21), Ava (19), and Helena (17). They began homeschooling in Iowa in 1980, but moved to Illinois in 1982 to avoid Iowa regulation of homeschooling. Their family ministry, Trivium Pursuit, seeks to teach parents how to apply classical education to homeschooling. Harvey has studied Biblical Greek both formally and independently since 1972 and has developed easy-to-use self-teaching materials for homeschool students and adults who want to learn Greek. The Bluedorns reside in New Boston, Illinois.
Please Note: Homeschooling materials will be available at the seminar, including Latin, Greek & Logic curricula.
