    1. This book is perfect for those who have kiddos in middle school. Are you annoyed by their questions and argumentation? What if you accepted that this is the appropriate behavior at this age as they try to figure out the world around them? What if you helped them (and yourself) learn how to ask good questions? What if you discussed literature, history, science, and current events with them? Wouldn't it be great to get to know them better?(Yes. My review is intentionally full of questions :))

    2. After reading "The Core" 3-4 times, I had high hopes for "The Question", Leigh Bortins' 2nd book in this series of 3. Unfortunately, I struggled to get through it. Partly because the language itself is difficult and then also because many times too many words were used to illustrate a simple point. Where "The Core" is a simple-to-use, easy to understand book for any homeschooler out there, "The Question" is geared specifically to Leigh's homeschool program "Classical Conversations". Although I'v [...]

    3. Great read! This was my second book by Leigh Bortins and geared more for middle school age and high schoolersSuper insightful on how to ask questions to promote thought and how to foster environments where open communication and freedom to think on their own is welcomed

    4. My favorite quote from the book:"I want to be sure that the time my family spends in academics aids rather than hinders my children's ability to resolve conflict, to seek peace, and to be content with tension. They need to know not only how to answer hard questions abut also how to live with circumstances beyond their control without trying to control others. It seems like the purpose of education has become, as C.S. Lewis identifies it in That Hideous Strength, the ability for some to control o [...]

    5. I found The Core to be a very informative book about classical education so I was looking forward to reading The Question, the follow-up geared towards parents of middle- and high-schoolers. Initially I enjoyed the book, but after awhile it became very repetitive. The purpose is to guide parents through five essential questions that will help students become critical/analytical thinkers. Bortins shows the reader how to apply these questions to every subject, from geography to math to literature. [...]

    6. This is the "sequel" to The Core, by the same author. This book is for parents and tutors of the Challenge level in Classical Conversations. I have to say I enjoyed The Core more, but The Question has a lot of good information in it too. The only thing that gets laborious is that for each subject Bortins discusses, she goes into the five common questions and how that subject can be dealt with using them. That gets old after a while. I will finish it as time allows, but at this point,I only pick [...]

    7. A good book on the classical model of homeschooling. Some of things taught and recommended are geared for kids older than mine and so I will definitely read this one again when our son is in middle school. The book gave me a deeper understanding and appreciation for the classical model of homeschooling.

    8. There are plenty of books that provide vision and inspiration to parents who are educating at home. However, many of these leave me thinking, "That's all very nice, but how about giving me something I can use?" This book provides inspiration as well as the 'how-to' element those other books do not provide.

    9. An excellent book on educating Middle School Aged children. Should be read AFTER the Core. Even though I would not recommend the organization Classical Conversations because of structure and ethical concerns, Leigh has the best, modern books on classical education.

    10. Wonderfully detailed book about homeschooling classically during the dialectic stage. Filled with information on how the integrate subjects in this stage & generally, how to cope with students who have SO many questions! Lots of encouragement & tons to glean.

    11. I read the first half and really enjoyed it. I plan on rereading/finishing the book in a few years when it will actually be applicable to my child.

    12. A good continuation of her thoughts from "The Core." This is written for the next stage of teaching in the middle school years and has many good ideas for moving on to the next level.
