learn how to evaluate its value; and then make up your mind about it So the goal of classical education is to graduate a student who knows how to locate important knowledge analyze it for truth and falsehood and then express an intelligent opinion about it That’s a student who’s ready to head off for college Knowing that you’re aiming to shape those particular qualities in your graduating senior helps you to make intelligent decisions about what (out of the huge teeming mass of available resources) you’ll buy use and focus on That’s a big part of what we offer parents But at the same time we give practical down-to-earth day-by-day details It’s wonderful to have lofty goals for your student but what grammar book which math program what science text do you use How much time do you spend How much work do you expect your second fifth eleventh-grade student to do How do you teach phonics award grades tackle ancient history fill out a transcript We give specific details on how to do all of those things You don’t have to follow our lead in these details; you can choose to do things your own way But we’ve provided concrete hands-on guidance in case you feel adrift All the recommendations are updated of course Books and curricula go out of print (particularly elementary ones—they seem to get outdated very quickly) and new ones are published so we’re always looking for resources that are both good and easily available We’ve updated the recommendations in each edition of The Well-Trained Mind but this fourth edition also has four major changes from earlier editions First the fourth edition pays attention to how recommendations might differ for children with processing and learning difficulties It seems that these children make up a much higher percentage of home educated students than in previous years As home education has become more visible and additional resources have become available many more parents are reacting to very individual needs by choosing to remove struggling children from the classroom entirely So we wanted to give more guidance on evaluation adapting the classical curriculum and alternative recommendations—some of which are in the book but more are online at our new website welltrainedmindcom Which leads me to the second major change… We’ve shifted quite a bit of our information online We started with the quickly outdated appendices (lists of publishers and suppliers home school groups and so on) but we’re also now including alternative recommendations online In the book itself we list our top picks for all the different subject areas But there are many more books programs and resources that are compatible with the goals of classical education So on our website we’re listing great resources that we found too complicated expensive specialized or quirky to recommend in the book but which have enthusiastic support among many veteran home schoolers Plus we’re offering guides to online enrichment activities apps and other web-based learning tools Third—we’ve completely revamped our maths and sciences chapters Classical education has often been criticized as stronger in the humanities than in the maths and sciences Working with highly qualified experts and experienced teachers we have overhauled our approach to provide a much more rigorous and coherent maths and sciences education And finally…in response to our readers we’ve reorganized chapters into two parts—first how to teach a subject (methods goals expectations etc); and second what resources to use (recommended texts and curricula) This makes the book even more flexible since parents can use the principles of teaching even if they choose to use other specific texts or programs than the ones we suggest The first strategy: Realize that a standardized test has almost no relationship to real education Standardized tests are the ultimate expression of the artificiality of our education system—and that system has little to do with the goal of classical education which is to guide a young mind (and personality) towards mature thoughtful self-knowledge and self-expression (a goal that requires a great deal of knowledge about the outside world) Standardized tests don’t necessarily measure the child’s knowledge or skill; they may not coincide with what you’ve been working on; and they require specific test-taking skills that your child will have to practice when he could be doing something else with real learning value But…for home educators standardized tests are a great equalizer Because grading standards vary so much from school to school standardized test scores have become the ultimate proof that you’re doing a good job educating your child Students with a good grounding in the foundational skills of reading writing and mathematics generally test well So that’s your first task: concentrate on those core language arts and mathematics skills Second practice test-taking Even if your state doesn’t require yearly testing take the tests anyway (We have a list of the different tests and how to take them—you can administer some yourself—in The Well-Trained Mind) Tests are a reality of educational and professional life (you even have to take a test to get a driver’s license) and constant practice will eventually dull test anxiety Plus you can use the test results to target weak areas that need more study as well as to praise the child when scores show that he has made progress If the child consistently tests poorly in a particular skill you might want to consult a professional evaluator to see whether the child has a learning problem or simply needs more time in that area Third (an important corrective) don’t put too much weight on the results Even at its best standardized testing is merely a tool for evaluating instruction It should be used to plan the next step in the educational process not to “evaluate” the student’s intelligence Never make an important educational decision on the basis of one test And finally: If we’re talking SATs or ACTs study directly to the tests No matter how much actual education has been going on that may not translate into test results Getting an approved study guide and sample tests and spending three to five hours per week working on particular test-taking skills is the most productive and effective way to raise scores Could the student be doing something more worthwhile—like reading or writing or baking bread or contemplating the philosophy of Marcus Aurelius Absolutely But part of adulthood is learning which hoops to jump through (because they’ll get you closer to what you really want) and which to disregard Standardized tests are one of those hoops worth jumping through Just remember that they’re hoops DON’T PANIC Okay that was a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy joke but it’s also true At the Well-Trained Mind Press where we publish resources for home educators we are constantly reminded by the parents who call us for advice and assistance that educating your children is an incredibly fraught business It’s fraught because parenting is fraught If you’re a good parent you rarely feel that you’re doing an adequate job You’re painfully aware of all of your inadequacies and shortcomings That’s because parenting is one of the most difficult and vital tasks on earth Of course you don’t feel that you’re doing it well (If you think you’re doing it well you probably have very young children Wait until they’re?
