Parent Practicum 2013!

Communities all over the nation will host 3-day Parent Practicums this summer!  

Every summer, CC offers themed Practicums.  This years theme will be "The Art of Mathematics - Returning to Roots & Reason."

Parents attend to deepen their understanding and application of the classical tools of learning.   In the afternoons, while parents continue to learn more about the CC program and receive practical help in their homeschooling journey, contracted tutors to go their classes  get specialized training to prepare them for the coming year.  Children are also welcome to attend Practicum.  For a very reasonable fee, they may attend children's camps with trained camp leaders.  There is no cost for adults attending Practicum.  The spouses of the homeschooling parents are also invited to attend.

The following video gives an overview of Classical Conversation's Practicums this year.

Our Local Practicum will be in July, in Tuscola. 

Location:  United Methodist Church, 901 North Prairie Ave., Tuscola, IL 61953
Dates:  July 15,16, 17
Time: 9am - 4pm

Parents:  attend for free
Ann Birchenough will be our main speaker.   She will be talking about classical education all three days - what it is, what it looks like at different ages, how to do it at home. 

Ann will also be talking about math - why many people are afraid of math, math as an obstacle to homeschooling through high school, how to get over your fear of math.

There will be lots of encouragement - you can teach your child, you can teach math!  CC is about equipping parents to teach their kids.  Come to get that "shot in the arm" and get energized about the coming year!
