Product Description:

Middle School students should be encouraged to approach the world with curiosity. Leigh Bortins (and the organization she founded, Classical Conversations) teaches parents how to ask curiosity-sparking questions. With a goal of parent-student discussion and strengthening the mentoring relationship between them, Bortins goes carefully subject-by-subject outlining its dialectical (official classical name for this learning stage) approach. Along the way she makes a strong case for classical education. Helpful appendices provide lists of possible questions as well as resources. 223 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

Category Description for Classical Acts & Facts Cards:

The Acts and Facts cards are 5”x 8” laminated light cardstock with rounded corners. The front of each card has a full-color depiction, while the back features written information. Each card, regardless of topic, has some iconic features. These include a small world map that shows the location and a timeline that illustrates the time period of the card’s feature. Each card also has notations showing the link to the Foundations Guide. Cards are in cycle-related sets for Artists/Composers, History, and Science.

Classical Conversations™ is an international organization with local communities and memberships, weaving a classical educational methodology with a Christian worldview. Their well-organized PK-12 scope and sequence is divided into three Cycles with three basic age/grade focus levels (Foundations, Essentials, and Challenge) each covering the same historical/geographical periods in any given year. While not their main instructional materials (Guides), we carry these reference, review, and reinforcement products that can be used by those in Classical Conversations™ as well as anyone who wants a useful tool in a particular subject.
