    One thought on “Classical Me, Classical Thee: Squander Not Thine Education”

    1. An excellent brief apologetic written for students of CCE by a product of CCE. Answers many objections and let's them get the broader picture of why they are sitting there doing what they are doing and admonishes them how they ought to be approaching the work.

    2. In Classical Me, Classical Thee, Rebekah Merkle has written a winsome explanation and defense of classical Christian education for students currently enrolled in a classical Christian school. Of course, the book is wonderful for educators and parents as well, but Merkle knows her audience well and does not depart from a focused conversation with that audience. And this ought to surprise no one as Merkle is both a classical Christian educator and a product of classical Christian education herself [...]

    3. This a great book for current classical Christian students. Equally valuable as a teaching tool for parents with students at the Logic/Rhetoric School level. Classical Christian school administrators should consider this book to supplement their parent education programs. Well written Rebekah! Thank you.

    4. Last year I read Rebekah Merkle’s Eve in Exile, and found it to be a delightful and enlightening read. So, when I started looking at books for the year’s #vtreadingchallenge, I noticed that one of the first categories was “a book for teens and young adults.” Because of my previous experience with Merkle, her book Classical Me Classical Thee rose to the top of my list for this category.In this book, Merkle is directly addressing students in classical Christian schools, and she is attempti [...]

    5. This was an amazing and inspiring book. This was really what I needed to encourage me during school, and it helps that the author has been through the same types of things. I highly recommend this book!

    6. This is an excellent book written for CCE students, demonstrating the vast difference between the education they are receiving vs. that of a modern public education. Having been a student guinea pig in some of the first CCE classes in the USA, there are few people who could write a book such as this. I'm so glad that she had the opportunity to take this on! I look forward to sharing this with my girls when they are older.

    7. SO good. Didn't expect to get much out of this since I've already finished my classical Christian education, but I was wrong! Give this one a read. (It is written for students, so if you're not a teenager anymore, you'll just have to deal.)

    8. I am not in the target audience for this book. I am one of the parents who is trying to "give" a classical Christian education to my kids. But my oldest is in Bekah's bullseye, as are all the other secondary students at our school. This is a fun (and short) and persuasive book that makes the water look tasty to many horses (even if they don't know how thirsty they are).

    9. This book is a pretty good idea: now that we are getting into the second or even third generation of classical education, have someone from the first generation write to the current generation trying to get them on board with the project. In execution, it turns out pretty OK: there is definitely a lot here that might help get current students on board. Alas, as Kierkegaard warned, life, which can only be lived forwards, can only be understood backwards, and so I fear a lot gets lost in translati [...]

    10. This book is not so much an argument for classical Christian education as it is an encouragement to high schoolers in the CCE trenches that all the hard work will be worth it. Don't be embarrassed that you're different - you're learning superpowers! On the level of encouragement, it could be helpful. On the other hand, the representation of other, non-CCE schools is not good. Classical Christian education does not have a monopoly on knowledge, despite what this book's tone implies. The tone coul [...]

    11. Recently, I was told by a friend that I would be disliked by someone he knew, because among other things, I am a Christian and I home school my kids. Ahh, I've been there many times.Rebekah Merkle's book is not about being a Christian or about homeschooling. It is about the value of a classical (and yes, a Christian) education. But, I found myself, nodding my head and scribbling notes in the margins, because there was a comforting parallelism between this book and my life. So many of the argumen [...]

    12. I enjoyed this little book. The writing is engaging and breezy. For me the topic is essentially preaching to the choir, but I do enjoy hearing the arguments for why we do what we do. Gave the book three stars because I spent actual real money on this and thought $12 was a bit much for what seems like a glorified pamphlet.

    13. Merkle quite blatantly suggested that the aim of Classical Christian education (through the efforts of teachers and parents) is to turn children "into leaders", which I thought was unnecessary to argue for the merits of classical education. And yet I expected Merkle to be more 'boastful' in other places, like in Chapter Five (finding meaning in Literature)—and encourage that it's the Christians who are most able to rightly interpret classic and complicated works of art and literature; but she [...]

    14. This is written to high schoolers, but I found it to be an engaging read despite not being the target audience. A great reminder of the gift I was given in receiving a classical education at the The college level.

    15. Fantastic! Parents, read this, even if your kiddos are in elementary! Give it to your 7-12 grader. Excellent reminder/summary of WHY we are in classical education!

    16. Accessible. Thought-provoking. Fantastic metaphors. Funny. Great read for students, parents, administrators, and teachers.
