Universities in the Middle Ages focused on three skills to develop the intellectual abilities of students - grammar, logic and rhetoric. In this well-researched and practical book author Martin Robinson shows how these three tenets are as relevant today as they were 800 years ago. Summed up as 'how things are represented, how things are known and how things are communicated', the Trivium - the foundation of medieval liberal arts education - is a powerful tool that teachers can employ to stretch all young people and develop a discipline for thinking and learning that will stand them in good stead in the 21st century, when skimming the surface seems to be the most that we can hope for. An important read for all teachers looking for deeper thinking in their students
