SAINT JOSEPH, MO 3-Day Practicum – 84525
The Art of Grammar
Prepare to be encouraged and equipped. Our morning speaker will show you practical tools for bringing breadth and depth to your family’s learning. Discover how the classical model takes education beyond a textbook for relational and transformational learning.
Afternoon facilitators will teach you how to instill a love of language, and using textbooks a tool, not a taskmaster. Get equipped for your journey as teacher, mentor, and guide. You’ll find inspiration, vision, encouragement, and the resources you’ll need.
Whether they are being cared for in our nursery, playing and chanting in our play camp, memorizing and drawing God’s world in our Geo Draw camp, or engaging new concepts in one of our older academic camps, your students are sure to enjoy the group learning environment.
