***First Year Teacher Edition***
In this, the second of a two part series, we cover the Trivium Skills:
Reading For Understanding
Coming To Terms
Finding The Argument
Playing clips from Mortimer Adler’s dvd version of How To Read A Book, as well as a short excerpt from Rev. Edmund Opitz’ talk, The Liberating Arts, I outline for the audience a few essential skills that are required in order to obtain the most from a Trivium-based education. As the Trivium deals with the substance and structure of thought and language, it can be said to be a universal education, relevant to all human beings regardless of time and place.
This is a way to increase your intelligence.
Part 1 covers the introductory information on the Trivium Subjects and Method, while Part 2 covers the Trivium Skills.
