Educating Ourselves as we Educate Our Children

0 0

Educating our children involves educating ourselves. And that means gaining confidence in our own intellectual abilities—rather than relying solely on “experts.” 

Come discover a plan for self-education in the classical tradition, including scheduling for busy adults; setting up a reading plan that involves understanding, analyzing, and discussing literature; and mastering the skills needed for reading classic fiction and nonfiction. 

Look, we know it feels like you don’t have time to read (except for catching up on Facebook statuses on your phone, in the bathroom, while tiny fingers scrabble under the door for your attention), and that you’d rather make conversational references to Orwell, Tolstoy, or Austen than to “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami” (not that there’s anything wrong with that show, and wasn’t it hilarious when Khloe got addicted to Cuban coffee?, and don’t make more than one conversational reference to Tolstoy per day, if you want to retain ANY friends)…anyway, “The Well-Educated Mind” is a friendly guide through literature, poetry, biography, and history, with tips on how to get the most out of a book. It’s like being introduced to the Great Conversation by someone who’s totally normal and has both “Madame Bovary” and “People Magazine” on her bookshelf.

And the audio lecture is way cheaper than the book, so why not give it a try?
