GHC Online Classical Conference - Recordings

Andrew Pudewa joined other classically minded speakers at the newly formed GHC Online Classical Conference! Though everyone was coping with unprecedented global circumstances, people were still able to connect and share with fellow travelers on the journey of homeschool!

Watch the GHC Classical Conference Talk Recordings by Andrew Pudewa here:

Descriptions for each of the talks can be found below:

  • Culture, Curriculum, and Care: Building Community in a Time of Need

What is the nature of culture? the nature of curriculum? How does one affect the other? What single element rests at the core of our success in teaching our children? How can we integrate all these as we work to build community with like-minded fellow homeschoolers, in a time when we all feel an increasing need for it? From his three decades of teaching and parenting experience, Andrew will share useful concepts and humorous stories to answer these questions and help invigorate your homeschool.

  • Mysteries and Virtues in Children’s Literature

A continuation of Andrew’s talk “Fairy Tales and the Moral Imagination,” this presentation will explore more deeply the richness of traditional children’s literature, with an emphasis on what to read aloud as well as how to guide children’s reading so that it’s not only enjoyable but also helps awaken a sense of wonder while instilling character and virtue.

  • Principles of Motivation

A student of motivation for decades, Andrew has organized fundamental ideas of motivation into three categories: four forms of relevancy, three laws of motivation, and two secret weapons. This is an expansion of Andrew’s previous talk “Teaching Boys and Other Children Who Would Rather Be Making Forts All Day,” with new and updated information, stories, and tips to help kids learn happily and well.

  • Teaching Boys and Teaching Girls: Towards a Better Understanding

An in-depth look at the neurophysiological differences between boys and girls—how they hear differently, see differently, handle stress and pain differently—as well as the implications for our teaching of both boys and girls, this is an expansion on Andrew’s previous “Boys” talk. With added research together with humor and practical stories, this presentation will delight and enlighten parents of boys, girls, or both!
