Overview of the Dialectic Stage

This article by Christine Miller is really a compilation and condensation of the thought and discussions, taking place over a year’s time, of the on-line Classical Education Support Loop for homeschooling mothers. If you are still a bit fuzzy about the particulars of the Dialectic stage of the trivium, this is the place to begin.


Subjects in the Dialectic Stage

The subject of Logic is the heart of the dialectic stage curriculum. Besides the article on Logic, there are also detailed articles about other subjects that could be included in the dialectic stage of a Classical Christian Education: Art, Bible, Government, History, Language (meaning classical languages, Latin and Greek,) Literature, Math, Music, Oratory, Science, and Writing. This is where the rubber meets the road, where Classical Educational theory is taken out of its ivory tower and put into practice at the dining room tables of homeschooling families day in and day out. The methods and ideas discussed in these articles are merely the personal opinion, based on research and experience, of the authors. Readers are encouraged to take from these ideas where they can, and discard those that are incompatible with their principle and practice.
