momof3angels Posted July 21, 2012 Share Posted July 21, 2012 I have decided to try the Well-Trained Mind approach to my son's education after several years of buying packaged curriculum and having my son fly through them in half a year. I love the ideas and plans laid out in the book but am struggling because I don't know which supplements to use for each history topic. I have not had any training in classical education and was not well-educated at all, especially in ancient history. My problem is that although she mentions using "original works" to enhance history study, I don't know when to include the original works. I don't even know which original works to include for that matter. Can anyone help please? My son is VERY advanced in his reading and loves history but the is definitely still in the "Logic" stage as far as evaluation of material. The "Rhetoric" stage material is something he can handle reading but I'm not sure that he can evaluate the meaning behind the reading. Does that make sense????
