Like the first volume of English for the Thoughtful Child, this second volume concentrates on the development of composition skills. It contains picture lessons, oral and written narration exercises, memory work, and copy work. In addition to these lessons, which help build narrative and descriptive skills, this book includes nature lessons, which help build expository writing skills. Those families who keep nature notebooks may find these lessons work well with their own nature studies. Much of this book comes from Scott and Southworth's 1913 title, Lessons in English. The original preface describes it this way: "Too many teachers think of a textbook as a kind of machine gun, built to fire so many loads a minute with deadly precision. This is a vicious error. In this book, teachers will find a great variety of material which they can use in accordance with their best judgment. Exercises are given for copying, for dictation, for rewriting, for description, for letter writing, for recording the results of observation and experience, for the use of words and their synonyms, and for practice in the use of correct forms. Ample provision is made for the correlation of nature work with language, and the elements of grammar are inductively presented." "The end of all instruction in English is growth in power of expression and appreciation. Drill which contributes to this end is good. Drill which, falling short of this end, merely fills the child's mind with rules and symbols, is a grievous waste of time." These lessons exemplify the Charlotte Mason method of education. The book is a continuation of the gentle, thoughtful instruction in writing begun in English for the Thoughtful Child, Vol. 1.

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.
