Reviving the Pedagogy of our Tradition

Much work has already been done to understand and clearly articulate a distinctly classical and Christian curriculum. Meanwhile many teachers are still left wondering what instructional methods and modes of learning actually ought to look like within the daily grind of their classrooms. In this session we will address nine essential elements of distinctly classical and Christian pedagogy, imploring teachers to: speak the truth (logos), tell great stories (mythos), love out loud (pathos), notice the wallpaper (ethos), discipline the senses (gymnastic), move toward wonder (poetic), teach with conviction (didactic), expect to be imitated (mimetic), and play the midwife (dialectic). Participants will also be provided with a corresponding one-page schematic describing not only the pedagogy but also the content and aims of classical Christian education.
