If anyone could ever be described as the ideal teacher, that person would have to be Jesus Christ. Looking to Him as an ideal type of teacher, what can we learn? 

Christ the Word, Christ the Logos, exemplifies three key characteristics for teachers to learn from today. First, teaching must always be logocentric: There is some truth (or, in the case of Christ Himself, the Truth) that is being taught. Teaching assumes, believes, demands that truth is real, that it can be known, and that it can be communicated. Teaching like Christ, then, begins with a logos, a truth that is to be taught. 

From there, He demonstrates two ways to teach that truth: Mimetic and Socratic. 

Classical education is the cultivation of wisdom and virtue. Therefore, you teach classically by expending all of your energy figuring out and implementing what it means to cultivate wisdom and virtue. But what does that mean? What does it look like to teach classically? How does classical pedagogy differ from conventional pedagogy?

Join Matt Bianco as he introduces the two modes of classical instruction: Mimetic and Socratic Teaching.
