Modifying Classical Education For A Dyslexic Child: Tips And Ideas
Classical education takes a child through three distinct stages. The grammar (or memorization) stage, the logic (or analysis) stage, and the rhetoric (or persuasion) stage. Essentially, children who are being classically educated work on Latin, chemistry, literature, and a range of other topics, and they work on each of them in different ways depending on if they are in the grammar, logic, or rhetoric stage. When young, classically educated students memorize facts; then, they learn to analyze those facts; and finally, they learn to present their views and findings through persuasive rhetoric and argumentation.
