Classical Conversations Week 6

To Know GOD and Make HIM Known


"I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old."

Psalm 77:11 (KJV)

Foundations to Challenge

History helps students understand God's providential plan and make sense of the political systems, religious beliefs, and societal institutions that we see around us. Many of the foundational ideas of our culture come from the Romans. In Foundations this week, you will finish your overview of the Roman Empire. In Challenge II, students translate passages from Caesar's Gallic Wars. They begin the year with a comparison of three leaders: Julius Caesar, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Christ. Students meet up with Caesar again in Challenge III Shakespeare.

As students grow up in the Challenge program, they get the unique perspective of integrating their Latin, literature, and history. You can read a student's perspective on high school Latin in Anna Harvey's article "Why Study Latin: A Student's View".

Wondering how all these Foundation facts play into Challenge? Check out this video of an interview with a Challenge IV student who started Foundations when she was 9.

Please remember, the nursery is nut-free.

Please send nut-free snacks with your child if they are in the nursery. Mrs. Burns will not be able to give your child their snack if it contains nuts.
