At the 2015 CiRCE Conference, A Contemplation of Harmony, Andrew Kern and I led a breakout session called "Transcending Method: The Art of Classical Teaching". What did we mean?

Over the last few years, I've read several books that seem to be beckoning me to home. Almost any of Wendell Berry's books, especially the one I've read most recently, Jayber Crow, will stir your thoughts to home and community. In June, I attended the CiRCE Summer Institute's inaugural retreat, where we read and discussed Homer's The Odyssey.

I teach a group of homeschooled 12th graders. This is my second year teaching them, having followed them from 11th to 12th grade. I introduced them to The Lost Tools of Writing Level 1 at the beginning of the 11th grade and we’ve continued the lessons into this second year.
