Is your child getting lost in the system, becoming bored, losing his or her natural eagerness to learn? If so, it may be time to take charge of your child’s education—by doing it yourself. The Well-Trained Mind will instruct you, step by step, on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education from preschool through high school—one that will train him or her to read, to think, to understand, to be well-rounded and curious about learning. Veteran home educators Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise outline the classical pattern of education called the trivium, which organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the child’s mind and comprises three stages: the elementary school “grammar stage,” when the building blocks of information are absorbed through memorization and rules; the middle school “logic stage,” in which the student begins to think more analytically; and the high-school “rhetoric stage,” where the student learns to write and speak with force and originality. Using this theory as your model, you’ll be able to instruct your child—whether full-time or as a supplement to classroom education—in all levels of reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music, regardless of your own aptitude in those subjects. Thousands of parents and teachers have already used the detailed book lists and methods described in The Well-Trained Mind to create a truly superior education for the children in their care. This extensively revised fourth edition contains completely updated curricula and book lists, links to an entirely new set of online resources, new material on teaching children with learning challenges, cutting-edge math and sciences recommendations, answers to common questions about home education, and advice on practical matters such as standardized testing, working with your local school board, designing a high-school program, preparing transcripts, and applying to colleges. You do have control over what and how your child learns. The Well-Trained Mind will give you the tools you’ll need to teach your child with confidence and success.

Sonokrom, ein Dorf im Hinterland Ghanas, hat sich seit Jahrhunderten kaum verändert. Hier spricht man noch die Sprache des Waldes, trinkt aphrodisierenden Palmwein und wandelt mit den Geistern der Vorfahren. Doch eine verstörende Entdeckung und das gleichzeitige Verschwinden eines Dorfbewohners stören die ländliche Ruhe. Wäre nicht die Geliebte des Ministers in den Fall verwickelt, wäre er schon längst ad acta gelegt worden. Der Gerichtsmediziner Kayo, der nicht unbedingt an Übersinnliches glaubt, wird mit der Aufklärung beauftragt. Als die Situation immer unfassbarer wird, müssen Kayo und seine Ermittler einsehen, dass westliche Logik und politische Bürokratie ihre Grenzen haben.
