Comments Trivium 21c: Preparing Young People for the Future with Lessons From the Past

  • Michael Layden

    I found this a highly useful book. Martin Robinson is a teacher himself and has excelled in his field. As is common with all great teachers he is driven to try and understand what works and what doesn't more than most. The birth of his daughter has greatly focused his interest in the role of education and it's practical application. This deep interest has led him on a highly productive quest. He has returned to the basic Trivium of grammar, logic and rhetoric. His journey brings him from Aristol [...]

    Martin Robinson's Trivium 21c is the story of his quest to discover the foundations of classical education and whether it's tenets can be used in our present day school system. Through a variety of interviews with noted educators and his own study, we get a glimpse of his discoveries.His book is focused on the trivium - grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric. While he does mention the quadrivium as well, this work focuses specifically on the trivium, and it's proponents and dissenters. He discusses ea [...]


  • The Literate Chimp

    great introduction to the Trivium. I will need to go back and re-read to get a good grip on some of the ideas, but the book provided a fascinating framework and inspired me to read more about rhetoric. Now need to look at applying the insight to my own practice.


  • Mark

    I enjoyed this, it was useful in my current research into the trivium for my own teaching practice. The book is thorough although I would have liked it to have touched on some of the conspiracies linked to the trivium. In all, very good.


  • Zeba Clarke

    Very worthwhile exploration of what schools should be doing, whether there is a canon, how to create a balanced approach to education and how students should emerge from full time education. Highly recommended - very balanced, thoughtful and engaging.


  • Christopher Beckett

    I would recommend this book to anyone interested in education, philosophy, classicism and teaching. Every page is entertaining, informative and thought-provoking, and has helped shaped my own pedagogy.


  • Al

    Really interesting attempt to bridge the traditionalist-progressive divide in education by going back to not just underlying values but also a look at how education has changed. Written in a very discursive way , it could have perhaps benefitted from some editing. However an immensely valuable book and one I think I will need to read again.


  • Matt

    Robinson's central idea of 'progressive traditionalism' in education is excellent, but his exposition of that idea desperately needs focus, follow-through, and editing.
