Grammar

The “Poll Parrot” Stage
Kindergarten through Early Adolescence

“...learning by heart is easy and, on the whole, pleasurable; whereas reasoning is difficult and…little relished”
-Dorothy Sayers
 
 
 
 

Logic

The “Pert” Stage
Early Adolescence
 
 
“characterized by contradicting, answering back, liking to ‘catch people out’ (especially one's elders); and by the propounding of conundrums. Its nuisance-value is extremely high.”
-Dorothy Sayers
 

Rhetoric

"The Poetic Age" Stage
Late Adolescence
 
 
“The imagination...will reawaken, and prompt them to suspect the limitations of logic and reason. The doors of the storehouse of knowledge should now be thrown open for them to browse about as they will.”
-Dorothy Sayers
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
