Regional CiRCE training to be held June 20
LPA to host CiRCE classical ed workshop
As mentioned at this winter's parent meeting, one of LPA's top aims in the coming year is to increase meaningful training opportunities. After all, encouraging young people to be life-long learners begins with faculty, parents, and other influential people themselves modeling what it looks like to be life-long learners. And that means learning and re-learning.
A day that can change how parents and teachers view the purpose of education
LPA is hosting the Circe Institute's one-day, Charlotte-area regional workshop for classical education.
Nationally recognized teacher, author, and speaker on classical Christian education, Andrew Kern, will present an all-day training, Wednesday, June 20.
Participants are expected from the six county area, composed of parents and teachers from other classical schools, home schools, Classical Conversations, and other programs.
The theme is "Cultivating Wisdom and Virtue" through the classical learning approach, and those who wonder what virtue has to do with education, it's a day not to miss.
Mr. Kern, co-author of the book, Classical Education: The Movement Sweeping America, will guide contemplation of four key ideas related to classical education:
- The Christian classical difference
- Word made flesh: the master mode of teaching
- Assessment that blesses
- Teaching from a state of rest
The week following the event at LPA, Mr. Kern will be a presenter at the Society of Classical Learning in Charleson, and while the SCL convention is well worth attending, it does cost $345 plus travel expenses. The chance to learn from him at the regional workshop, is only $25, and since it's hosted at Lake Pointe, it's easy to find.
