Trace, Draw, Copy—Becoming a Math Person the Naturals Way!

Earlier this spring, a small group of CC tutors gathered with Leigh Bortins, CC’s founder and developer of The Math Map, and Kirsty Gilpin, the lead mathematician for this K-12 math curriculum currently under development. For several days, this group made personal connections, shared table fellowship, laughed, worked, and engaged in math conversations with one another. Their struggles, enjoyment, and study highlighted four ideas, and CC is responding with an invitation.

Happy Father’s Day, Men!

Happy Father’s Day, men! Today is the day you get to kick back and relax, maybe enjoy a steak with family and watch some golf. Whatever your favorite pastime may be, I hope you’re to rest, recreate, and celebrate. I realize reading an email from the CEO of Classical Conversations probably wasn’t high on your list of things to do this weekend, so let me get right to the point.

Explorers Digital Camp 2021: Save 10%!

Last year, we released our first Explorers Digital Camp, a series of engaging online videos and fun activities families could enjoy together while sheltering in place from the pandemic.

Happy Mother’s Day from CC!

To all the homeschool moms out there, we at Classical Conversations wish you a Happy Mother’s Day! We hope it’s filled with much-deserved rest and, of course, with loved-ones and family.

You have spent the past year teaching your children to recognize truth, beauty, and goodness. You have encouraged them to love learning and follow their interests. And you have set for them an example for what it means to know Him and to make Him known.

Finding Meaningful Work as a CC Director

Fresh out of college, brimming with life purpose and dogged by student loans, I took a job. My student loans, although modest by any standard, were a responsibility I carried seriously. Their weight meant I was hungry for a paycheck. Meaningful work was the last thing on my mind—I just needed a job. With the full support of my college’s career services department, I started pounding the pavement, sending out resumes, optimistically expecting a “good” job would materialize.

Community, Belonging, and Ministry with CC

A potential and difficult challenge any homeschool mom may face is isolation. I am tempted to personify that term—Isolation, written like a name or proper noun. Make it a character as in John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress, like Obstinate, Prudence, Faithful, or Talkative. Their name messages their impact, character, and role with a clear signal if the companion helps or harms Christian on his journey to the Celestial City. Isolation isn’t necessarily that forthcoming.

My Experience Directing: Overwhelmed Homeschool Parent to Licensed CC Director

I was not the new kid on the block. A seasoned homeschool mother and teacher, I had heard of Classical Conversations and had been intrigued. Having already purchased my own private library worth of books and classical curriculum, I was drawn to CC’s comprehensive experience and resources. But I tucked all that in my back pocket because there were no Classical Conversations programs near me.

Defending Host Churches Against Anonymous Letters

 

Several years ago, about 2500 churches that support and host Classical Conversations communities received anonymous letters demanding they disband their CC communities or else fear losing their non-profit status. In an article for The Federalist—an online magazine reporting on politics, religion, and culture—writer Jenni White argues against the claims of the anonymous letters, defending the thousands of churches who graciously support their local communities by providing homeschool families with a place to meet and educate their children. Below is a brief excerpt from the article:
