CC Parent Practicum 2016

Los Altos

Dear Parents

We are thrilled you and your family have chosen to join us next week for the Practicum in Los Altos. Our guest speaker is Kristi Dietz. As a homeschool graduate herself, Kristi has always been an advocate of home education. When she and her husband decided to pursue homeschooling their three children (now ages 10, 7, and 3), the classical model resonated with them as the most biblical model. Classical Conversations has allowed them to implement a classical education in the context of Christian community. Of their four years in Classical Conversations, Kristi has tutored two, and will begin this next year as Director of their San Francisco community.

We are excited to have her discuss this year's Practicum theme, "Navigating History, the Art of Argumentation." Each afternoon we will focus on the practical application of the classical model and homeschooling, with Q & A panels, and further discussion of Classical Conversations' mission, method and model. We hope you will leave feeling encouraged, inspired and equipped.
