Classical Education: A Flood That Becomes a Filling

Recommended Posts

Scholé Groups Parents, have you read the latest at Classical Insights? So much encouragement for those in the midst of a busy homeschooling life who have come late to the world of classical education and scholé. 

Karen Harris writes:


It started out innocently enough: I read a book about classical education. But soon, what had begun with merely discovering a term for a style of education became a flood that threatened to drown me in an unknown world: contemplation; the Good, the True, and the Beautiful; multum non multi (this isn’t even English?); the trivium; unity and discord; art study (is there a test?); Socratic discussion; harmony; magic (is that Christian?); wisdom and virtue; read-aloud; the liberal arts. How on earth is a mother of nine children supposed to implement a new world of learning when she does not even understand its most fundamental pedagogy? Read the rest at the Classical Insights Blog

What are your thoughts? How is the flood becoming a filling in your life? Or are you still in the flood stage? If so, what encouragement and advice can you glean from Karen's wise words?
