On Episode 20 of her podcast we chat about chapter one.
Can virtue be taught?
Obviously, I am assuming that my audience of homeschooling educators knows about the book, Norms and Nobility A treatise on education by David Hicks. This book was first published in 1981 and has climbed the ladder of “must reads” within the classical education community. There are plenty of places you can go to get an in-depth look into this book. However, our review will not be one of those places.
We want to give an overview of the chapters in a way that a busy homeschooling mom can quickly listen to. Our time talking is shorter than others but we leave you with some application.
Why should you care to read this Treatise on Education? Is virtue important, and how can I, a homeschooling mom with 2 kids begin to teach it?
Come on over and listen. While you are there make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss chapter 2 and leave her a review. Thank you in advance.
Go deeper with the study of virtue with a great book called “Tending the Heart of Virtue, How classic stories awaken a child’s moral imagination. By Vigen Guroian.” And it ties in perfectly with chapter 2 and the discussion of myths.
