While classical schools are often distinguished by their curriculum or school culture, one important piece of the classical education equation is the distinctive pedagogy employed in the classroom. This lecture will help parents understand how their children are being taught at school and will offer some suggestions for employing similar pedagogical techniques in their daily conversations at home.

No RSVP is required to attend.
