The School Sucks Podcast: Doing a Series on the Trivium

The folks at the School Sucks Podcast are doing a series on the Trivium. This week they put up an episode on Grammar and Logic, following both the Introduction and part one of Grammar and an interlude about religion and Sophistry. Plenty of citations, links and embedded documents are on the podcast episode pages, putting the Corbett Report to shame. Follow the links, turn off the football and pay attention to this instead.

Two embedded documents in particular got my attention, and that's the pair I'm embedding below:

Trivium and Quadrivium Cliff Notes by Gene Odening

Trivium Method of Critical Thinking and Creative Problem Solving

Take the time to read these either before or after listening to the series. (The last part, covering Rhetoric, is not up yet; when it is, I will edit this post to reflect the complete series.)
