#07: Elevating the Curriculum

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 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 week Jennifer and Ashley explore how the Christian Classical Tradition elevates the curriculum from just the simple material objects we use to engage our students. The curriculum is the course we follow, the attitudes we have, and how much harmony is cultivated between the logos and mythos. Jennifer and Ashley discuss the logo-centric curriculum vs. the content driven curriculum. Hopefully, this episode can relieve some of the anxiety when choosing the materials for your homeschool. Enjoy the show!


“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

One thought on “#07: Elevating the Curriculum”

  1. I listened to this one tonight on my run, and I’m so guilty of having the ideas but not embodying them. I love thinking, and making connections, and blah blah, but then when it comes to doing the work of it, I’m so lazy. Thank you for the encouragement!

    (And Ashley, I think you’ve said before that you are INTJ, I am too. And just the other night I was trying to convince my friends that I really am hilarious. So your conversation about how funny you are was perfect!)
