Mary Harrington’s seminars
SEMINAR TITLE: Latin is Essential and How You can Teach it with no Prior Knowledge (Part I)
SEMINAR DESCRIPTION: Latin, the base of the English language, is the key to a good English vocabulary and to good grammar. It is possible to teach Latin in an interesting way and to learn as you go. In this seminar, we will use several books, including our own, to show foolproof methods for covering this very important basic subject for the teacher who has no prior knowledge of Latin.
SEMINAR TITLE: Teaching a Biblical Worldview by Studying Cicero
SEMINAR DESCRIPTION: Sic transit Roma. Sic transit America?
Your students will develop a proper understanding of ethics and the political structure of government as well as learning to trust in God’s Providence by reading A Pillar of Iron and by answering the thought-provoking 260 questions written for this book. Questions and answers are given to each interested teacher/parent.
SEMINAR TITLE: What is Christian Classical Education?
SEMINAR DESCRIPTION: Do you wonder exactly what is meant by “Christian Classical Education”? Learn how to incorporate this proven method of teaching students using the classical method which is much more than Data Input. In this workshop, the trivium will be explained, and you will give your students more tools to learn, and to think! Just a few changes in your curriculum will turn on the “light” for your students.
SEMINAR TITLE: How to Write a Story that’s not Boring and How to Write a Christian Autobiography.
SEMINAR DESCRIPTION: Are your stories lacking form? Do you know the secret of an interesting story? Learn the principles taught by John Reynolds Gardiner, author of Stone Fox, who has permitted us to use his materials taught at his seminars. You will also receive an outline for an autobiography for your students to write which helps them focus on their life goals. If you really want to enjoy this workshop, read Stone Fox before attending. It is available for purchase at www.amazon.com (well worth the money!) and also at your local library.
