In this Platonic dialogue, readers are lead on a journey to examine what virtue is and whether or not it can be taught. Join us as we consider how to use the Socratic method to educate our children and the importance of teaching them "how" to think. We will reflect on how to awaken the conscience of our students through dialectic conversation as we explore timeless questions about choices, consequences, and character. Whether you have had opportunity to read the dialogue or not, and whether your children are toddlers or high school students, you are sure to benefit from the conversation.
Do the words "literary analysis" make you quiver with fear and trepidation? Are you vexed with nightmares from a previous literature class and hesitate to begin exploring the elements of stories with your students? Set your worries aside, and join Jennifer Courtney, the Director of Parent Education, and Jaime Kovanda, the Essentials Academic Advisor, to explore a NEW curriculum that teaches an approachable method for using the tools of literary analysis. No need to read War and Peace to accomplish this skill since Teaching the Classics uses children's short stories to present a step-by-step method for reading, analyzing, and discussing literature with students of all ages.
