the classical christian education model
Children from kindergarten (4 and 5 year olds) to 5th grade are adept at memorizing large amounts of information. The Grammar stage makes great use of this natural ability to give children a firm foundation of facts in math, phonograms, natural history, geography, science, etc.
As a child matures from 6th through 8th grade, he/she becomes naturally adept at argument. Logic enables them to assimilate the facts they learned in the Grammar Stage into a more thorough and cohesive understanding of their subjects and to arrange their thoughts in a rational and meaningful way.
Students have now honed their Socratic skills of asking questions and questioning answers, enabling them to engage the dominant ideas of past and present cultures, allowing them to impact their generation with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom found in the Gospel of Christ.
