#28: Considering Plutarch with Karen Glass

Is now available in Itunes & Stitcher. We would love to know what you think, so leave us a review and rating on ITunes!

Welcome to Season 3 of The Classical Homeschool Podcast. At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom. This season we are cross referencing Norms and Nobility (by David Hicks) with The Great Tradition (by Richard Gamble). Hopefully, this journey will be fruitful in understanding the references made by Hicks bringing all of us deeper into the Classical Tradition.

Karen Glass is part of the Advisory of AmblesideOnline. She has four children, ages 13 to 27, who have been homeschooled using Charlotte Mason’s methods from beginning to end. She has been studying and writing about Charlotte Mason and Classical Education for over twenty years, and has written Consider This to share the most important things she has discovered about the connection between them.

“Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ESV

  1. I am a newbie to Classical Education and just read Karen Glass’ book. I loved her book!
    Thank you so much for having her on the podcast and for having this podcast. Now I will see if I can get my hands on Norms and Nobility.

  2. I was just talking to my husband last night about how you need to respect other’s opinions, even if they’re “stupid” (his word). Doesn’t mean you have to agree with them. I was fumbling over myself while talking and probably didn’t make sense. Today I listened to this podcast and the second half is exactly what I was talking about! Thanks for wording it in such a way, and now I can just point him over here!

    1. We are more focused on the application of classical education in general. We focus on the living out of classical ideals in everyday life regardless of grade or age. Does that help?
