Podcast: The Well-Trained Mind
In this podcast, Homeschool.com interviews author Susan Wise Bauer about her book, “The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education.” Susan was homeschooled herself and as a parent, homeschools her own children with her husband. She has been especially interested in learning and sharing about classical education because of her own homeschooling motivation for her children. She wanted them to know that learning is not confined to 12 grades of school, rather, that it is a lifelong journey. With classical education, there is great emphasis placed on learning how to learn, utilizing critical thinking skills, and becoming an intrinsically-motivated self-directed learner.
This podcast was recorded live from a phone conference as part of Homeschool.com’s “Homeschooling How-To Marathon.”
