      The 4th edition of this Classical favorite updates all product information (eliminating products which are no longer available and substituting new favorites for previous recommendations). The general organization and structure of the book is the same, although a new introduction/overview section on homeschooling high school has been added.

    If you're looking for some real guidance in product/curriculum selection for providing your child with a "classical" education, here it is -- down to the titles of the books and where to find them! These ladies have very clear recommendations for each subject area, both for elementary through eighth grade and high school levels, and they're anxious to share them with you. Written by a mother and her daughter (a second-generation homeschooler), the book provides what many are looking for - concrete, specific recommendations for materials to help in providing an academically rigorous, comprehensive education. Using the trivium as their pattern for education, the book is divided into sections by stage: the Grammar stage (grades K through 4), the Logic stage (grades 5 through 8), and the Rhetoric stage (high school). They wrote this book after coming to the conclusion that "if you want your child to have an excellent education, you need to take charge of it yourself. You don't have to reform your entire school system. All you have to do is teach your own child." And they, very capably, supply you with the when, what, and how of it all from there.

    Jessie Wise taught her daughter, Susan, at home, using the classical method. And Susan, a literature professor at the college of William and Mary in Virginia, uses it with her own three sons. Their experience and knowledge of materials has enabled them to provide us with both a clear explanation of the theory behind a classical education and the means to implement it. Each part of the book begins with a very good description of that stage, how it differs from the others, and what your priorities should be. Then, subject by subject, and grade by grade, they provide much advice about what to teach, schedules for teaching, and many, many curriculum (text and non-text) recommendations. Later sections of the book address socialization, character, time management, grading and record keeping, standardized testing, athletics, dealing with your local school system, getting help (when needed), going to college, working, obtaining materials, and starting in the middle. Appendices list home-education organizations and other resources. Parents who want to provide this type of education will find much support in this volume. Revised in 2009.

    The Core Instructor Text is the scripted teacher's book for the entire four years. All rules and examples as well as teaching notes explaining the ambiguities and difficulties of each grammatical construct are built into student-teacher dialogues. There are question/answer dialogues for 130 lessons. Including reviews, the expectation is lessons on 4 days a week for 36 weeks. It helps to have an understanding of classical methodology to appreciate what is here. Essentially, each of the lessons contains a single theme that will be repeated in each of the program's four years. The idea is that at first concepts will be imperfectly grasped but through repetition and through four years of exercises, mastery of both concept and applications will be perfected. The instruction is done through teacher-student dialogues. That means a significant time investment will need to be made by the teacher (I'm guessing 15-20 minutes per lesson) for each of the four years. While this may seem a bit daunting, remember that everything is scripted (i.e. provided for you) with little to no teacher prep and that you will also gain familiarity with the dialogues as you progress through the years.  PB. 387 pgs.

    Comprehensive Handbook of Rules is indeed both comprehensive and a rule book. It contains all the principles that govern the English language as well as examples of each. Included are parts of speech, sentences, parts of sentences, dialogue and quotations, capitalization (summary of rules), punctuations, documentation (Turabian method), and sample conjugations. To give you an idea of the scope, nouns are covered thus: types, capitalization rules, gender, plural formation, noun imposters, and nouns that serve as other parts of speech. Each is clearly illustrated by examples that come from great literature (often classic but sometimes contemporary). In the verb section, there is a helpful five-page verb summary chart that provides active and passive formation with examples for four verb tenses (indicative, modal, imperative, and subjunctive). An index is provided (thankfully). Although a key component of the Grammar for the WTM series, it could easily be used as a reference by anyone wanting a solid, definitive English grammar resource.
