Transcript: Classical Conversations Information Meeting Purpose: The purpose of Classical Conversations® is to lead the home-centered education movement by teaching parents and students the classical tools of learning so that they can discover God’s created order and beauty— and as a result— enable others to do the same. To Know God and to make Him known Vision: We enable parents everywhere to equip their children with a Christ-centered worldview and the classical “tools of learning” in order to impact the world for God’s glory. Lisa Brizuela Foundations/Essentials Director firstname.lastname@example.org About Me From Modern to Classical Classical education seeks to discover truth, goodness, and beauty by way of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. "He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power." -Hebrews 1:3 Types of Education Modern Education "Poor" Christian Education Good Christian Education Great Christian Education Classical Education Regardless of their learning style, children learn in three phases or stages (grammar, logic or dialectic, and rhetoric), known as the trivium. Age 4-12 Memorize facts to form pegs in the wall. Grammar Stage naturally want to know things. Naming Attending Memorizing Expressing Storytelling Answers the questions: who? what? where? when? Age 12-13 Challenges authority and facts. Utilize facts (pegs) to form arguments. Debate Reason Answers the questions: How? & Why? Logic Stage Ages 14-18 Poetic Age The unknown can be explored because the known is understood Use knowledge and understanding to discern the true, best or most valuable use of things Abstract and hypothetical can be explored Self Expression Connections made between the natural and the spiritual, apologetics “Hard” math and sciences are more easily mastered. Rhetoric Stage Grammar French Revolution Dialectic Example of the Trivium Reasons the Third Estate revolted, how were they being treated, why did they feel empowered, what was going on at that time? Rhetoric Are we seeing anything like that in today’s world? What can be learned from this? How can we keep this from happening again?
