Each class is made up of eight students in approximately the same age group and is led by a trained parent tutor. Students and parents attend this class together. From 9:30 to noon, the tutor leads the class in five thirty-minute segments that cover new memory work, a science project, a fine arts activity, public speaking, and memory work review time.
Essentials classes have about twelve students between the ages of nine and 11, who attend the class together with their parents. During the lesson, younger students tackle easier samples while older students tackle more complicated ones. Younger students learn from the older students, who are given the opportunity to act as mentors. Parents adjust assignments at home according to age and ability.
Challenge is set apart by one trained parent-tutor serving as a year-long mentor in all subjects. These tutors are often called the “leading learner,” because they are learning the subjects along with the students. Parents are still the primary teacher at home, making sure students understand the material and complete the assignments so they are prepared to participate in Challenge seminars.
Across the United States, Classical Conversations Communities exist to complement your home-centered education and connect you with like-minded families. Each community is facilitated by a trained parent-director, and classes are led by trained parent-tutors who model the classical tools of learning. Tutors have the privilege of encouraging students toward becoming lifelong learners while also encouraging parents in the classical teaching of their children.
