        My apologies! I would have loved to have you there. If it helps, although I stayed in Houston the conference was in Brenham.

        We will try to give more notice here for such things in the future. I do keep an Events page at cherylswope.com, so you can pop in over there.

          I probably wouldn’t have been able to get to Brenham. But I do hope to see you in person someday!

            What is the Simply Classical training that is happening on the pre-conference day? Is this anything more than what will be covered at regular Sodalitas?

              Cheryl,
              Templeton Honors in June? Please fill me in. This is a program we are giving serious consideration to for my teen. We will be connecting with some of their folks this next week in PA at thenSt. Emmelia Confernce, especially since there is the St. Basil Center for Orthodox Thought and Culture.

                Good morning Susan (sfhargett),

                For the pre-conference day, Cheryl will be giving two sessions, a morning one tentatively titled "Struggling Learners in the Homeschool and Tutorial Setting" and an afternoon one tentatively titled "Struggling Learners in the Classroom and School." Cheryl may chime in with more details; she was at a conference this past weekend, so it may be a bit before she can return to the forum.

                HTH!

                  Thank you, Michael.

                  I'm now home and, refreshed from March conventions in Texas, South Carolina, and Missouri, I am happy to be back!

                  Susan (sfhargett):
                  No matter what the title becomes for pre-conference, we will try to include all new material for those pre-conference sessions. This year at Sodalitas the SC special-needs sessions will be content-based, just like the regular sessions. When the regular track explores studying math, so will the SC track but for special needs. When the regular track discusses Latin, so will we but for children with special needs. This will leave plenty of room for extra information, tips, and Q&A for each of the pre-conference half days.

                  Susan (SPearson):
                  I have been contacted by both Dr. Amy Richards and by the Dean of Templeton Honors College, where a Master of Arts in Teaching in Classical Education is now available as a 30-hour program. Such classical pedagogy programs at universities across the country are exciting enough for me to see, but this is especially encouraging because new course, Classical Education and Special Needs, is offered. Scheduled as guest instructor of this course on June 25, I will then give a public lecture on campus that evening. I will know more after visiting but already appreciate the program's vision and mission.

                      Thanks Cheryl. So it sounds like the pre-conference will be additional information. Awesome!

                        Cheryl,

                        A delayed response to your response. Yes, this new Master's in Classical Education Teaching that Templeton Honors is offering is really quite amazing. I just arrived home Sunday after being at the Antiochian Village with a bunch of other Orthodox homeschoolers. Andrew Kern is always there and, this year, Templeton had a booth in the vendor hall (which is small at a conference this size.) In the past, schools like Grove City were represented there. This time, Templeton. Dr. Cyril Jenkins (History Professor) was there working with the teens and had admissions people and current Templeton students there to interact and answer questions. Plus, 2 feet away was Andrew Kern (who immediately asked me, just as he does every time I talk to him, if I have read your book! LOL!) He is encouraged by Dr. Brian Williams as the new Dean at Templeton. It's definitely on our 'list' for Blake. We'll see. But so are a few other places. We're locked into college degrees for this kid who wants nothing more than to be a classical educator.
