2015 Parent Practicum

Classical Conversations

practcium: n. Supervised practical application of a previously studied theory

Do you want to learn how to come along side your child so they love learning for life? Do you wonder if you can homschool them through high school? Do you want to see if there is a community of like-minded families to come along you on this journey?

Join veteran homeschool moms to get answers to these questions and specifically learn about the practical application of the Classical model of education in your Christian homeschool.

We’re excited to announce that the 2015 Parent Practicum theme will be science, emphasizing the building nature of science explorations: they lead to understanding and AWE. We begin with the grammar stage of curiosity and wonder, through the dialectic, and end with the rhetoric stage of awe in the face of dawning understanding. Wonder to wonder!

Our speaker, Kristie Monteiro, will encourage and equip us for this journey of giving our children a classical, Christian education through acquiring knowledge in the Grammar stage, to understanding it during the Dialectic stage, to using it to bless our creator and others in the Rhetoric stage.

Afternoon sessions will demonstrate practical tools for teaching investigation and science, along with round table discussions and other topics.

Nursery care and camps for all ages are available!
