by
Marcus Foster June 6, 2016


Presented at:
SCL Conference 2016

ABSTRACT:

After a summary of last year’s seminar on the Great Conversation Series at Covenant Classical School (Ft.Worth, Texas), this seminar will further develop the GCS Seminars (for parents and teachers) as a tool for organically fostering cross disciplinary integration, cross grade level collaboration, and cross parent pollination with curriculum and pedagogy. The practical side of planning, hosting, and capitalizing on such events will receive special attention. The seminar will conclude with Q & A, especially aimed at exploring other schools’ attempts at similar endeavors.
