This year’s Homeschooling Mothers’ Bookclub selection is The Question by Leigh Bortins. We were a part of a Classical Conversations community during the 2012-2013 school year, and we’re seriously considering rejoining our community this upcoming school year. Even if we don’t join, though, I think The Question will be a good book for me to read. Lulu has many of the signs of being in the dialectic phase, so I need to bone up on just what that means for us academically. I think anyone who’s interested in children’s intellectual development or who homeschools classically will get something out of this book.
I don’t want to rush through this one, mostly because my reading and thinking time is fairly limited these days. I will post a linky every other Wednesday, which I know is a long time between posts. You’re free and welcome to post more often. Some weeks I might post an individual post on each chapter, while other weeks I might share all my thoughts in one post. This is how I’ll divide up my posting:
May 28, 2014 (TODAY!)–Your “I’m in!” post
June 11, 2014–Linky for Part I, chapters 1-3
June 25, 2014–Linky for Part II, chapters 4-5
July 9, 2014–Linky for Part II, chapters 6-7
July 23, 2014–Linky for Part II, chapters 8-9
August 6, 2014–Linky for Part II, chapters 10-11
August 20, 2014–Linky for Epilogue and final thoughts
This gives you plenty of time to obtain a copy of the book (which is available through CC) if you want to read along. Any questions?
