  • Pause and Recall: When did you engage in a wondrous, reflective engagement of the true, good, and beautiful? When was the last time you had an undisturbed, deep encounter with scholé? (For example, this could be a subject you studied with a teacher in your past or a deep conversation with a friend.)
  • Scholé and the Ecclesial Tradition:In this lecture, Dr. Perrin discussed how practicing scholé can mirror the Ecclesial Tradition (or Liturgical Learning). How do the components of the Ecclesial Tradition, listed below, reflect scholé? How can you use these traditions, along with scholé, in your classroom?
    • Salutation, Adoration, Confession, Absolution, Petition, Homily/Sermon, Communion, Celebration, and Benediction
  • Scholé in PracticeConsider the paintings, music, and literature that Dr. Perrin included in this lecture, such as Caspar David Friedrich’s Wanderer over a Sea of Fog, or Walt Whitman’s “A Noiseless Patient Spider.” What poems, speeches, paintings, drawings, math puzzles, or natural science has captured your sense of wonder in the past? What pieces of the true, good, and beautiful do you return to time and time again? Consider working these into scholé exercises with your students, or take some time to engage with them in scholé yourself.
