Bauer and Wise present a guide to home schooling or supplemental schooling a classical curriculum across the K-12 span. Parts I-III break down the education into grammar stage (early primary), logic stage (primary to middle), and rhetoric stage (middle to high school). Each part discusses at the appropriate instructional level how to build basic to continuing competency in literacy and mathematical skills; approach the methodological and content areas of history, science, second languages, fine arts and music, and philosophical or spiritual reasoning; and use computer technologies and scheduling schemas to accomplish learning effectively. Part IV focuses on the practical concerns of educating at home, including socialization, time management, standardized assessment, "extracurricular" activities, and interfacing with the world of school districts and college applications who may be unfamiliar home schooling.
