Is your child getting lost in the system, becoming bored, losing his or her natural eagerness to learn? If so, it may be time to take charge of your child’s education—by doing it yourself. The Well-Trained Mind will instruct you, step by step, on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education from preschool through high school—one that will train him or her to read, to think, to understand, to be well-rounded and curious about learning. Veteran home educators Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise outline the classical pattern of education called the trivium, which organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the child’s mind and comprises three stages: the elementary school “grammar stage,” when the building blocks of information are absorbed through memorization and rules; the middle school “logic stage,” in which the student begins to think more analytically; and the high-school “rhetoric stage,” where the student learns to write and speak with force and originality. Using this theory as your model, you’ll be able to instruct your child—whether full-time or as a supplement to classroom education—in all levels of reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music, regardless of your own aptitude in those subjects. Thousands of parents and teachers have already used the detailed book lists and methods described in The Well-Trained Mind to create a truly superior education for the children in their care. This extensively revised fourth edition contains completely updated curricula and book lists, links to an entirely new set of online resources, new material on teaching children with learning challenges, cutting-edge math and sciences recommendations, answers to common questions about home education, and advice on practical matters such as standardized testing, working with your local school board, designing a high-school program, preparing transcripts, and applying to colleges. You do have control over what and how your child learns. The Well-Trained Mind will give you the tools you’ll need to teach your child with confidence and success.

"Der Spion" (engl. "The Spy: A Tale of the Neutral Ground") ist ein 1821 veröffentlichter Roman des amerikanischen Schriftstellers James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851). James Fenimore Cooper (* 15. September 1789 in Burlington, New Jersey als James Cooper; † 14. September 1851 in Cooperstown, New York) war ein amerikanischer Schriftsteller der Romantik. Cooper ist in vielerlei Hinsicht eine Schlüsselfigur der amerikanischen Literatur. Neben Washington Irving war er der erste amerikanische Schriftsteller, der von seinen Büchern leben konnte. Er blieb bis weit in das 20. Jahrhundert hinein auch in Europa der wohl meistgelesene. Nach dem Vorbild Sir Walter Scotts schrieb er die ersten historischen Romane und die ersten Seefahrtsromane der amerikanischen Literatur. Sein umfangreiches Werk umfasst weiter zahlreiche historiografische Werke, Essays und Satiren über Amerika wie Europa. Besonders bekannt sind bis heute seine fünf "Lederstrumpf"-Romane, die die Erschließung des amerikanischen Westens durch weiße Scouts, Trapper und Siedler, aber auch die allmähliche Zurückdrängung und Vernichtung der indianischen Kultur thematisieren.

Extract One: Book 5, from line 362 (MP3 format, 8:17, 15 MB) Extract Two: Book 6, from line 268 (MP3 format, 4:41, 8.5 MB) "Arms and the man I sing." So begins one of the greatest works of literature in any language. Written more than two thousand years ago, The Aeneid tells the story of Aeneas' seven-year journey from the ruins of Troy to Italy, where he becomes the founding ancestor of Rome. Virgil's supreme achievement is not only to reveal Rome's imperial future, but to invest it with both passion and suffering for all those caught up in the fates of others. Frederick Ahl's new translation captures the excitement, poetic energy, and intellectual force of the original in a way that has never been done before. Ahl has used a version of Virgil's ancient hexameter, a swift-moving six-beat line varying between twelve and seventeen syllables, to reproduce the original poetry in a thrillingly accurate and engaging style. This is an Aeneid that the first-time reader can grasp and enjoy, and whose rendition of Virgil's subtleties of thought and language will enthrall those already familiar with the epic. Unlike most translators, Ahl has chosen to retain Virgil's word-play, the puns and anagrams and other instances of the poet's ebullient wit. "To shear away Virgil's luxuriance," Ahl writes, "is not to separate the painting from a (superfluous) gilded frame, but to lacerate the canvas. Like Shakespeare and the Greek tragedians, Virgil grasped that humor and earnestness are not mutually exclusive in art any more than they are in life. One should read the Aeneid not in solemn homage, but for enjoyment." Enhanced by Elaine Fantham's Introduction, Ahl's comprehensive notes, and an invaluable indexed glossary, this lively new translation brings readers closer to the original and the myriad enjoyments to be found there.
