The Lost Tools of Learning is a flagship address presenting the tools that were given to students in the Middle Ages via the trivium, the study of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. For perhaps the first time, these trivium subjects were applied by Sayers to students' developmental stages. She also advocates the integration of subjects, and explains that training students to learn on their own is the chief goal of education.
This essay, which has influenced subsequent classical educators, is now available as an audio recording with the feel of being in the hall hearing Ms. Sayers herself. Read by native Briton Victoria Twigg, and introduced by Dr. Christopher Perrin.

Brief Speech Concerned with Education's devolution
A wonderfully worded speech by playwright Dorothy Sayers She was brave to reveal the lost education structure that once defined free-thinking education system seen in early American education system. She speaks out against the Prussian model, meant to turn out obedient, uncritical stock of soldiers for a militaristic and imperialistic culture. She Dives into the core Trivium method and makes mention of the natural expansions into the Quadrivium. If you're not informed about this core issue in educating critically thinking individuals, then this is a great start down such a path.
