    I am still a bit confused. In a couple sentences, could someone please explain the difference between the trivium and the classical trivium.

      Rather than asking people to do this for you, simply study the video on the front page of the website. You won’t learn if you want everyone else to do your homework. Please study ALL episodes. Don’t take up others’ time for laziness. Also, as it says on the front page, please start at the bottom, episode 49 and work forward. Skip nothing and you won’t be confused. Thanks.

    I’m so happy I found this. My entire life I’ve working hard to take good grades and be the best of my class, but I’ve never actually felt like I was learning anything. Specially in my country, I started to question what was going on with education when I saw people with less than the minimum of critical thought even being graduated. I started giving classes to some kids of friends of my family and realized how depressed and unmotivated they were and I just saw myself. That was when I decided that I’d change “highschool sucks” to deep studies and researches in education. I’m beginning to study the Trivium now and the more I read, the more I realize how much I need it. Thanks for all the essays, articles, books and links, they’re being really helpful to my search.
