Trivium is an interactive course exploring the classic elements of education: Logic, Latin, and Rhetoric. Students will master essential roots, prefixes, and suffixes from Greek and Latin that make up the vast majority of English words. At its core Trivium is about critical thinking. 6thgraders focus on a CSI crime scene to learn observation skills and logical inferences. 7thgraders work toward a Mock Trial Competition to learn to examine statements for logical consistency and learn to speak in formal setting. The 8thgrade course will work towards a series of debates in which students will need to formulate sound arguments supported by data and they will also be able to identify classic fallacies in arguments.
