CAMP HUMPHREYS, SO 3-Day Practicum – 89151
Unlocking Language: The Art of Grammar
Have you ever felt stumped by homeschooling?! Are you looking for a “key”—something that will make all your efforts work together for success? Join us this summer at a local 3-Day Practicum; Unlocking Language: The Art of Grammar offers keys to more than learning languages! You’ll find a community of local families, eager to explore the classical model of education and find tools that make learning all subjects with all their children satisfying. We’ll practice with easy-to-use techniques, learning how to open the lines of communication with our children that make acquiring knowledge and everyday conversations easier.
During our 3 days together, we’ll also investigate English grammar and Latin grammar, discovering how a mastery of English grammar becomes the bridge to successfully pursuing a foreign language. We will practice our learning skills with Latin, and learn some tips and best practices for Latin scholars.
