Would Classical Conversations Be a Good Fit for Your Family?

Would classical conversations be a good fit for your homeschooling family?

I did a review of Classical Conversations on my blog and explained how I use it at home. It remains one of my most popular posts.

Because many people love Classical Conversations as much as I do, I thought I would invite two friends who have been involved in CC to share with the Homeschool Sanity Show listeners what they love about it and some tips for making it work for families.

I asked the ladies to:

  • Explain what Classical Conversations is
  • Describe at a typical day in a CC community program
  • Tell us why they got involved in CC
  • How they make CC work with Sonlight and Story of the World
  • What the advantages are to participating in CC
  • Share what it’s like being a CC tutor
  • Give us a parent’s role in CC
  • Explain how notebooking can enhance CC
  • Tell us their plans for using CC in the future

Be sure to follow my Classical Conversations board on Pinterest for more great ideas.

I apologize for the feedback that is noticeable in a few sections of the podcast. Thanks in advance for your understanding. The content is well worth the listen!
