    A Great Conversation

    A Great Conversation

    Who doesn’t love a great conversation?  Today, I have a special guest who joins me in a casual conversation around classical education. You’ve likely heard of this homeschool mama before, Bonnie Landry from MAKE JOY NORMAL. 

    She is a veteran homeschooler, a speaker, an author, and an encouraging voice in the sometimes misty woods of homeschooling.
    This past weekend, I had the privilege of being highlighted on Bonnie's podcast.  This isn’t the first time we jumped into great conversation.  Our first conversation took place in Houston, Texas at a conference we both were speaking at. Who knew that these two Canadian gals had to venture our of our home country to cross paths.

    Enjoy tidbits from our conversation. For the full episode, check out Episode 17 here at Classical Matters.

    Don't forget to check our Bonnie's podcast MAKE JOY NORMAL.  It is a vital encouragement for the homeschool mama's heart.

    From Logic to Dialectic

    From Logic to Dialectic

     If you are anything like me, and have never taken a logic class, how are we suppose to start to use the art of logic in our homeschools? 
    Today, we’re talking about how conversation cultivates this somewhat mysterious art of logic. We’ll start to explore just why logic it is needed and what it looks like.  We will look at thinking and reasoning, dialogue and community, and how this art is more than just using skills, systems and processes to direct the intellect.

    Grammar as Naming & Knowing

    Grammar as Naming & Knowing

    Today, as we continue to explore the art of grammar, we will look at simplifying things by using the words "naming and knowing" . These 2 words will help busy moms approach the often overwhelming task of grammar.  It is like a hook to hang our hats on, to remind us of the true nature and purpose of the art.

    Slaying the Beast of Grammar

    Slaying the Beast of Grammar

    In this episode, we will start to slay the beast of grammar. Even though our hearts cringe at the word, we’ll begin our journey of a deep dive into seeing how grammar is the beginning of language and forms thinking. 
    We will explore how it goes beyond labelling and toward imparting meaning, identity,  and participation with; how it imprints upon our memory, giving rise to remembrance; and how by comparing, our own thinking draws us to a more full understand ourselves.
