1 Day Parent Practicum in Coos Bay

What is a practicum?

practicum (‘prak-ti-k’m) The word practicum indicates that education should be practical. It points to the acquisition and mastery of knowledge in a manner that is useful and effective. It derives from the Latin practicus, a noun which means “one who practices or takes action.”

Morning and Afternoon session

Would you like to be more energized and organized in your homeschooling journey? Or perhaps you can encourage others in their homeschooling!

Our morning sessions will unpack the classical, Christian model and allow you to practice skills for learning alongside your children at home. Afternoon sessions will go in depth with particular subjects. In both sessions, parents will have opportunities to discuss new ideas and to practice their new-found skills.

Join us by going to register now!

In addition to providing a place to practice the teaching tools, our FREE one-day and three-day Parent Practicums equip our families across the nation each year with the encouragement and camaraderie they need to teach their children well. Each practicum is a place to connect, to question, to celebrate both failure and success, and to gain confidence in our ability to use the classical model to learn and to teach our children any subject.

In 2014, Classical Conversations hosted hundreds of FREE training events for over 15,000 adults who wanted to learn more about teaching grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric skills to their students.

Join us for 2015! These events are free for parents, but registration is required. For dates and locations of Parent Practicums in your area, go to and click on the Event Calendar.
