The participants on this list discuss the book "The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home" (TWTM or WTM) by Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer. Although we have a moderator, we do not have any "experts" -- we're all trying to figure out how to apply these principles in our own home, according to our own experiences.
This group is open to all homeschoolers who are interested in learning more about classical education methods. Therefore, although religion may be mentioned, it is not to become a point of contention. The focus of the discussion is to remain on-topic, with short friendly side comments allowed. We will discuss one main topic per week, along with whatever items members want to bring to the group (questions, successes, comments).
In order to protect the sense of community, comfort and semi-privacy of the participants, this list requires approval from the moderator before you may post. So, after you indicate your desire to join, you will receive an e-mail with a request for a short introduction telling the group about yourself and your schooling methods.
