20 Nov 2013

The first day of school has come and gone, and your routine is well underway. Fall can be a time of waning excitement, and perhaps disappointment and discouragement have started to set in. You had a good start, but are realizing that you are only halfway to Christmas break, and there are many long days ahead before you reach the end of your school year. Thinking about it, you may feel like your head is barely staying above water. This can be an overwhelming time for teachers and for students. It’s time for some coping strategies!

Classical education is distinguished from other models of education in at least three ways. First, classical education recognizes and embraces three stages of learning and seeks to teach in accordance with those stages. Second, it values history, especially the great conversations of the past, and places a priority on helping students benefit from and engage with those great ideas. Third, classical education values education for its own sake and seeks to develop students who are well-rounded with a wide breadth of knowledge across many disciplines.
