Scholé Sisters: Camaraderie for the Classical Homeschooling Mama

Our heart is for the mama who seeks to learn and grow while she’s helping her children learn and grow. Our show is a casual conversation about topics that matter to those of us in the trenches of classical homeschooling who yearn for something more than just checking boxes and getting it all done. In each episode, we cover our Scholé Everyday (places to go for inspiration and growth), and foster a topical discussion relying on principles we find in books by people like David Hicks, James Taylor, and Charlotte Mason.

We’ve been promising you a bonus episode for a while and today is the day! The only thing is, Abby made us do a Scholé Everyday, and then we talked too long, so we did the logical thing in this situation: we decided to make it a “real” episode. What does this mean for the season? Well, it’ll just be longer. There will be nine episodes instead of our usual eight, making this a sort of bonus after all.

Today, we're discussing an article on education written by Steven Rummelsburg that originally appeared in The Imaginative Conservative called The Problem of Language and Our Schools. If you’d like to read the article before listening, just click here. This is a rousing conversation on an excellent topic and also ... listen up because we're making a very big announcement!

Registration for spring training is now open! Titled "Great conversations about the Great Conversation: How to develop an understanding of a Socratic Seminar as it ought to be," this series of three sessions (LIVE at 5pm on May 11, 18, and 25) transcends all the crazy swirling around us and gets to the heart of truths that matter, even when things feel chaotic.

Our special guest today is Renee Shepard. Renee has been married for 14 years. She and her husband, who were both homeschooled, are now homeschooling their six children. She is currently finishing her graduate degree in Classical Christian Studies at New Saint Andrews College, where her favorite things to study are theology, Latin, and literature.

This episode is a follow up to an episode we did last year called Someone Stole My Socrates. Brandy, Mystie, and Renee discuss a work by Plato called Gorgias. (Brandy likes to call it Gorgeous.) Whatever you call it, it’s a Socratic dialogue. We decided that if we want to know what Socratic discussion is all about, we should go straight to the source. It’s great fun!
