I’m excited to be part of the team at Kepler Education! Kepler is a new consortium of independent teachers offering online classes for students 7-12. Kepler offers a wide variety of courses in the classical Christian tradition, with an emphasis on the liberal arts. You can choose which teachers/classes fit your family’s needs and schedule. Although not a “school,” Kepler does offer credits towards a high school diploma.
The Medieval Humanities courses are integrated humanities classes, combining history, literature, philosophy, theology, and the arts. We’ll be using the Old Western Culture curriculum, featuring a long time friend and inspiration of mine–Wes Callihan.
I’m offering Medieval Humanities for 8th graders, and also a more advanced class for 11th graders.
Rhetoric and Introductory Logic will also be fun. For Rhetoric, we’ll be using the Fitting Words curriculum from Roman Roads Media. Introductory Logic is a great class for student who are new to classical education, or who would like to begin their Logic studies at a slower pace.
Here’s a short video introducing Kepler Education.
My classes will follow the “Oxford Model,” which is also known as a “Flipped Classroom.” Students will watch lectures from veteran teachers and scholars early in the week. Then they’ll do their assigned reading and other assignments. On the class days (“Recitations”), we’ll meet online to discuss the lectures and readings, and to pursue wisdom as a community of learners.
I’d love to answer any questions you have about Kepler, Old Western Culture, or Fitting Words!
If you’re new to classical Christian education (or even if you’re not), this is a great (free) introduction, by Dr. Christopher Perrin.
