Great Homeschool Convention – Greenville
Join us March 20-22 at the Great Homeschool Convention in Greenville, South Carolina.
The Classical Consortium will have its own area. You can browse the Classical Curricula of CiRCE Institute, Classical Academic Press, Professor Carol, and Memoria Press. We will again have a “reading nook” – a quiet area with comfortable seating where you can read, relax, or enjoy conversation. Nobody will try to sell you anything while you’re there.
Our consortium members are also giving lots of presentations during the conference to help inform and inspire you. And all of us are teaming up for what some would call a panel discussion.
We’d call this session on classical education a “panel discussion,” but that would sound too boring, and the conversation among these four speakers is anything but boring! Carol Reynolds, Chris Perrin, Andrew Kern, and Martin Cothran discuss what classical education is and how it is done. In the process they agree, disagree, comment, criticize, tell funny stories, dispense advice, and (in the case of Andrew Kern) think stuff up right on the spot. Watch Chris Perrin use what little energy is left in the room after Professor Carol talks to ask a deep question of Andrew Kern–the answer to which Martin Cothran simply scratches his head at. And, most importantly, you can ask questions and get four different answers, each one (in the opinion of the person giving the answer) better than all the others! And all of it has something important to do with great books, music, language arts, and the humanities. You will go away amused and informed.
