If you were unable to attend our premiere event on Teaching Arts Classically last May, you missed some terrific presentations and good company. We had such a wonderful time, we’re going to do it again. This time we will meet on the campus of University of Dallas, our co-sponsor.
Saturday, October 7, at The University of Dallas
We’re delighted with the lineup of speakers. Dr. Matthew Post, Director of Classical Education at the University of Dallas, makes an encore appearance. Also joining us will be Dr. Gregory Roper, Associate Professor of English Literature at the University of Dallas. Dr. Roper specializes in Middle English literature, rhetoric and composition, literary theory, and pedagogy.
Our special guest will be Martin Cothran of Memoria Press. When we were first getting involved with the homeschool world and Classical Education, we discovered the dedicated people at Memoria Press and their fabulous materials, beautifully produced and meticulously organized. They have been an invaluable source of knowledge and inspiration for me ever since.
Among his accomplishments in the realm of Classical Education, Martin has been a key player in planting the classical flag in the homeschool world. He offers a clear assessment of the current state of education and a vision of what needs to be done.
Barbara Rogers of Coram Deo Academy will also make a presentation on A Cup of Beauty: the Art of Hospitality. Now there’s an inviting topic!
And, of course, yours truly will have a few things to say about Teaching Arts Classically and the pursuit of Beauty. There’s more to come and we will provide additional details soon. So stay tuned.
The symposium speaks to teachers, administrators, homeschool parents, and others interested in a classical approach to teaching the arts. What could be better than a day of sharing inspiration, fellowship, and practical advice?
Come join us! Lunch is provided and parking is free.
