Welcome to The Classical Homeschool Podcast. At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom.
On this episode, Jennifer and Ashley continue to expand on how the Christian Classical Tradition elevates our homeschools from the purely utilitarian to the pursuit of wisdom and integration. As a homeschool mother it can be confusing to live out our roles as a mother and a teacher. Are those two roles separate? How are they connected? From whom does our authority come? How do we build trust and piety in our homeschools?
Jennifer and Ashley work to stress that teacher, even the homeschool mom, is a rhetorician. Meaning that as mothers, we are the introductions to the Truth for our children. Jennifer gives a fabulous example of how to engage with your students and children by asking Ashley some impromptu questions about Anna Karenina. Hopefully, this episode will bless you with some answers or inspirations to cultivate the attitude of scholarly stewardship in your life. Enjoy the show!
