Reaching Educational Outliers: Partnering with Parents to Classically Educate All Students Well
Sara Osborne, College of the Ozarks & The Classical Thistle
Prompted by questions and ideas from Susan Wise Bauer’s recent book Rethinking School and Cheryl Swope’s Simply Classical, this session will explore creative strategies for helping both struggling and academically gifted students in classical schools. How does our philosophy of education affect our view of these students? What strategies can we employ to pursue the same goals of classical education for all students? How can parents play an active role in this process? Please consider joining this important discussion as we consider how to promote the enjoyment and fruits of learning for all classically educated children.
