A Hierarchy of Instruction for Forming The Affections

Stephanie Knudsen June 9, 2013

Presented at:
SCL Conference 2013


As classical educators, we want to do more than produce articulate and informed graduates prepared to join the workforce. We also want to form the affections of our students which may seem to be a less objective task. How can we ensure purposeful and coordinated planning to support this second and more important goal? In this seminar, we will explore a systematic approach for doing so.
