    I have been homeschooling for 12 years now and have spent a fair amount of time learning about various homeschool ideas within the classical tradition and within the Charlotte Mason tradition. I have been at it long enough to have seen and rejected a lot of overly simplistic ideas of education. This course has been extremely helpful for me. Jennifer has done a fantastic job of putting ideas in the broader context of liberal arts tradition and linking together things that have previously seemed disconnected for me. A very powerful tool for developing your own homeschool philosophy and coming to a better understanding of the big picture of education in the broadest sense of fully developing your children in all areas of life.

    The 5 Elements of Classical Homeschooling is an in-depth, thought provoking course. Each element focuses on a different aspect of the job we are called to as parent educators. Although deep, the actual presentation of material is not long (the longest lasting about an hour). It clearly introduces the philosophy behind the element while providing helpful and searching questions and very practical resources to consider how to make it work for you as a teacher in your home (or class). I have read many of the classical education books she references but her presentation adds a layer of understanding, points out new relationships between t.hem and now I want to read them again with new eyes. Even if you haven’t read the resource, she provides enough context to make them easily accessible. She models analogic and holisitic teaching in her approach and some of her analogies have me pulling out books I haven’t read yet. This is the type of course that one can return to regularly and find new insight and challenges, As you and your children move through different ages and stages she addresses them all and provides support for you to search out how to meet your children where they are with the tools that have proven useful through the ages. Her focus is equipping the teacher (mom), both philosophically and practically (with time tested methods and materials), to lead by example and humility as she guides her children on this educational journey that draws all of them closer to wisdom and virtue. Well worth my time; it has already impacted my thinking and teaching.

    I have spent years studying home education, classical education in particular, and at first glance recognized the beautiful way in which this program is presented. It is evident from Jennifer’s comprehensive suggested reading list and the other materials from the very beginning in Module 1 of The 5 Elements of Classical Homeschooling that participants are in for a powerful journey! I am looking forward to starting a new year studying classical education with Ms. Dow’s materials in hand as a guide.
