Further Reading on Classical Education

Lutheran Education: from Wittenberg to the Future, Dr. Thomas Korcok, advocates the historic liberal arts as the best pedagogical model for the Evangelical Lutheran Church. Dr. Korcok traces the classical, Lutheran heritage to Martin Luther’s reforming influence on school, church, and home. He explores the application in Lutheran schools throughout the centuries and offers insight into implementation for today.

Dr. Veith and Andrew Kern’s Classical Education: The Movement Sweeping America provides a history of classical education and offers examples of various adaptations in practice today. Dr. Veith’s books always promise insightful analyses of past, present, and future. Consider the 2001 edition.

The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at HomeW.W. Norton, offers an outline for rigorous implementation of a classical education in the home school from preschool through high school. Susan Wise Bauer and her homeschooling mother Jessie Wise offer helpful insights and suggestions. Look for the 2009 (third) edition.

The Latin-Centered Curriculum by Andrew Campbell answers the question, “Why Teach Latin?” The author demonstrates that when you make Latin the centerpiece of your academic instruction, you will streamline your student’s classical education. Rather than “adding a subject,” you better integrate the learning. Find the 2008 edition, as his more recent edition may support more of an immersion approach rather than the traditional, classical grammar-first method.
