Trivium Mastery

Trivium Mastery, by Diane B. Lockman, is the book that rocked my classical mind! In her book, Lockman explains that the Greeks did not teach the 3 skills of the trivium: language, logic, and rhetoric, at different ages as Dorothy Sayers would have us believe. But these skills, or roads, are taught at the same time from birth and usually mastered within the tween years. These 3 skills are the foundation to higher learning. Once mastered, the student will be able to learn anything. How logical is that!

By God’s grace I will guide my children in the mastery of language, thought and speaking in order to give them a solid base from which to rise; to be able to learn anything and to do anything God calls them to do, for His glory.
