Sponsored by Classical Conversations, morning sessions will deal with how to implement a classical, Christian education at home. Topics will include Latin, history, and many other subjects, along with discussions and teaching practice. Afternoon facilitators will show how to instill a love of Latin, making textbooks a tool, not a taskmaster! Get equipped for your journey as teacher, mentor, and guide.
