  1. Here is the link that works: http://insideclassicaled.com/1461-2/
  2. I am so very much enjoying reading Phillip Schaff's History of the Christian Church, that I am not sure I can stop. The trouble is the set is 8 volumes long. Still, I have found volume 3 remarkable--the volume on the Nicene age. He touches on aspects very relevant to classical educators. I hope to share a quotation or two on the forum this weekend.
  3. That workshop video is now included as Lesson 6 (Embodied / Liturgical Learning) in the Principles of Classical Pedagogy... Pax, CP
  4. Dianna, I love the old Jesuits and the Ratio Studiorum. A lot of perennial wisdom in that document... even such as advice as "do not allow two boys to go to the bathroom together."
  5. Rhonda, Check now--you should be able to access your Certificate under "My Courses." Pax, Christopher P
  6. Donald, Thanks for this feedback. I passed it on to Dr. Schenk. I think there is a chance he will pop in on the forum to say hello... Christopher P
  7. Greetings All-- We have added a new forum that features six Scholé Muses and is based on their presentations and training aimed at classical homeschoolers. You can view some 20 presentations by the Muses on ClassicalU here and at no charge. Each of the Muses are veteran classical homeschool educators and leaders of homeschooling co-ops. You can interact with their presentations and ideas (and with the Muses themselves) on our new Scholé Muses forum.
  8. All, In case you did not know it, the old site ClassicalEducator.com has been shut down and that domain name now points folks to ClassicalUForum. Many of you have come over from ClassicalEducator.com--and so welcome! While ClassicalEducator.com served a good purpose for several years, this forum provides some excellent and in several cases superior features for the conversation we hope to foster surrounding classical education. Thanks for being with us! Pax, Christopher P
  9. Greetings All-- We are seeking up to three forum curators who: Are college-educated, good writers, and who have been engaged in classical education for at least five years Would be able to write five posts weekly asking questions and prompting conversation across the forum Could focus on curating a few sub forums, while also ranging outward to prompt discussion in other areas We are able to pay curators $50 per month, paid at the end of each month by check. If this describes you and you are interested, please send a letter of interest with a basic resume to info@classicalsubjects.com addressed to Christopher Perrin. Many thanks! Christopher Perrin

  20. Can you share the name of a great Catholic educational thinker--maybe one that most are unfamiliar with? Teach us.
  21. What do you regard as the chief qualities of a great upper school teacher? Think of a great teacher you had in your past (if you are blessed to have had several). What qualities do you recall that teacher had?
  22. Do you think that every teacher in the "dialectic school" should be trained in... uh, well, dialectic? I think so--but how do we achieve this?
  23. In your opinion, what are the chief virtues that need to be cultivated and developed in the grades 4-6? Why?
  24. If you are homeschooling a high school student--do you plan on having him or her do a senior thesis? In what ways are you seeking to prepare your student for this project?
  25. Katherine, I think the short video that features four seasoned headmaster addressing discipline is well worth viewing if you have not seen it yet. You can view it here: Four Headmasters on Discipline
