How to Homeschool During Coronavirus | Interview with

Classical Conversations CEO Robert Bortins recently sat down with journalist Dan Andros of to discuss what it’s like to be thrown into homeschooling during the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. This ten minute interview should give parents some help to make their day a little bit easier. Here are a few tips to make the most of this unique situation we’re all facing together.

  • Don’t just try to create school at home. Engage your student in a love of learning.
  • Go outside, observe, draw. Read books together.
  • Don’t be afraid to review things that your children already know.
  • Children crave structure. Create a basic regimen and structure of the day.
  • Involve your student in home-life: making meals, doing laundry, life skills, etc.
  • Engage in a conversation with your student. Discuss how this (pandemic) is a unique life changing time in history.
  • Ask your local homeschooler for help! You don’t have to go in this alone.

Classical Conversations Values Its Parents

When my mom started Classical Conversations 23 years ago, it was because many homeschool parents didn’t feel comfortable educating their children through high school. My mom didn’t start Classical Conversations to homeschool those children for their parents, but to provide those parents with the necessary support to homeschool their kids through high school. Unlike other education companies that focus on children, Classical Conversations is focused on their parents. If parents are well equipped and supported by a community, they can homeschool through high school successfully.

Even on rough days where you’re barely able to get everyone out the door looking halfway presentable, remember, God has chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and the heirs of His kingdom. That’s right, God doesn’t look for those folks who have their lives all together…

Spirit Week Devotional: Running the Race

Sin, doubts, unhealthy spiritual habits, guilt, and other things can consistently take our focus away from God and become a great hindrance. Let us draw near to the Lord in prayer and carefully consider what weights we may be dragging with us in this race.

Spirit Week Devotional: Ambassadors for Christ

Whatever you are an ambassador for, you want to support it and be a good representation of its values. Those of us who are Christians are also ambassadors of Christ to the world. It’s our job to be good representatives of who God is and what He stands for…
