“What is Classical Education?” with Martin Cothran

What is classical education and how does its definition differ from other, more modern definitions of education? How do Dorothy Sayer’s “stages” of learning fit in to the broader historical definition of what classical means? What part does Susan Wise Bauer’s emphasis on history play? How does classical education teach wisdom and virtue? What do we mean by terms like “great books” and the “liberal arts”? What role do they play in classical education? Many classical educators have a hard time negotiating this seeming morass of terms and definitions, and many times have a hard time explaining to parents and others what exactly classical education is. Martin Cothran, CLSA director and editor of the Classical Teacher magazine addresses these questions and others and will give you a way to answer the question “What is classical education” simply and clearly. Your questions will be answered during the webinar.

“Why Latin?” with Paul Schaeffer

Latin used to be ubiquitous in the educational world but dropped out of fashion in the mid-20th century. In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in this classical language. It is the key to teaching precise grammar skills, accurate vocabulary, and critical thinking at a young age. Listen to Paul explain the link between Latin and educational achievement.

“A Brief Overview Of Curriculum & the Trivium” with Martin Cothran

How does a concern with the Great Books and the liberal arts work out in a school curriculum? What does classical education look like in the primary grades, the elementary grades, middle and high school? Are the subjects studied in the classical curriculum different from those in traditional schools? Are the certain methodologies that characterize classical education? What should a teacher do differently in the different stages of learning? CLSA director Martin Cothran, who has over 20 years of teaching experience, discusses the ways in which classical education works itself out in the classroom. Question and answers will be taken.
