Curriculum is the backbone of the academic program. It is the defining character of our school’s identity. But, how can we be sure our curriculum is really “classical?” How can we know that we aren’t just teaching what every other school is teaching, with “classical” trappings? We need a curriculum development process that ensures that we are classical. In this seminar, Dr. Littlejohn helps participants identify essential objectives that can clearly inform our curriculum development and ensure that our program is truly classical.
