    Summer Adult Learning for CC!

    Hi Everyone,
    Something we started experimenting with last year is offering a 6 week adult "course" for some of the stages of Classical Composition.
    During the 6 weeks adult learners have the opportunity to experience several lessons as their children and students experience them, with presentation and practice in the lesson during class, submissions, and feedback. It's a really wonderful opportunity to get familiar with the rhythm of writing for each stage, and the parents and adult learners had a great time digging into the meat of fable and narrative, which was the target for last year. It was also a great re-enforcement of the concepts presented in the Sodalitas and HLSA summer conferences.

    The question this year is what stages to cover this summer, and Mr. Schaeffer asked me to reach out on the forum to ask for some feedback.
    If we do another 6 week course (at the same time as the other MPOA Summer offerings) I would cover one of 4 options:
    1) Fable and Narrative (3 weeks of each)
    2) Chreia/Maxim
    3) Ref/Con
    4) Common Topic

    Last Summer the courses met twice a week for an hour last year, but I am also flexible about that. All my courses online for typical students are 90 minutes once a week, which I would also be open to, for the sake of having fewer days committed to class time during the busy summer week activities.

    So, I have a request:
    If you are interested in an adult learning course this summer please post with your stage/stages preference (in order of preference) and whether you would appreciate a twice a week 60 min class, or once a week for 90 mins.

    If there is overwhelming response, we may be able to offer more than one of these options this summer!

    Looking forward to another wonderful summer with my fellow lovers of classical education!

    I would love this class! (just starting, so the Fable/Narrative). However, summer is odd and might be tricky. The day time is spend running kids here and there (looking forward to that this summer!)๐Ÿ˜Ž. I could probably do an evening, and I found the 2x a week better for these intense classes. (I took the FFL last summer)

      I'm not sure I could sign up but if I did, I would need Ref/Con. That being said, it definitely wouldn't hurt to revisit earlier levels. I think once a week would be easier for me to schedule in โ€” and allow more flexibility for working on assignments.

        I'm interested in Ref/Con and would probably prefer to meet once per week. It's always a little tricky for me since I'm on mountain time, but if the time of day worked out, I would love the opportunity!

              Ditto! I would also be happy with a class that spent time going over all of the levels.

                Hi VAmom !
                If you are looking for an overview of the stages, I would definitely recommend the "teacher" trainings at the conference that follows Sodalitas! Most of the CC stages teaching instruction will not happen at Sodalitas this year, I am given to understand, but will happen during the pre-conference and conference days, so Wednesday and Thursday.
                There is also the recording made last year when we were mostly virtual. Sodalitas 2019 Recordings

                  I am interested in Fable/Narrative, prefer mornings, 2x per week if it means we can get the course faster.

                    Unfortunately I donโ€™t believe I will be able to attend in person but look forward to attending virtually. Thank you for the reminder of the Sodalitas videos. By this time in the school year, I have forgotten what a wealth of knowledge they are.
