Assignments and Action Steps
Follow Josh Gibbs’s advice and take an honest look at the way modern progressive education works so as to not lack an honest idea of how classical education is so different. Keep a “pedagogical diary” and record your thoughts on the process and what you learn. Make some observations about the areas you think the classical approach that Josh discusses (especially toward Great Books) is superior to the progressive approach. Then, share the results with your colleagues, academic team, or another homeschooling parent. Consider having your academic team do this together and then share the results and discuss at a team meeting. If you are a homeschool parent, consider sharing with your spouse or a homeschooling friend with similar philosophy of education.
