Eight Essential Pedogical Principles of Classical Education

In this seminar I will highlight eight important pedaogical principles that come down to us from the classical tradition, with a goal of showing how a deep understanding of principles will naturally lead to effective practices. The eight principles highlighted will be: festinal lente (make haste slowly), multum non multa (much not many), repetitio mater memoriae (repetition is the mother of memory), cultivation of wonder and affection, virtue education, songs, jingles and chants, embodied learning, contemplation and socratic discussion.
