For those involved with Classical Conversations, it is also time to plan to attend a Parent Practicum this summer, and to invite others to attend. Parent Practicum is three days of free training for parents in both the philosophy that undergirds classical education in general, and the specifics of CC in particular. It is an intense and overwhelming three days, and totally worth it. Here are some tips for how to get the most out of it, especially if it is your first time attending.
Meet up with other parents from your campus if you have joined one.
Ask your husband to attend the Dad's lunch, if not the whole Practicum.
Take advantage of the bookstore.
Also, the CC book representative is a great resource, so feel free to ask him or her questions about materials and about CC in general. PLUS you get free shipping on anything that you need that is not in stock! (As a side note, sales at Practicum support that book representative, who is also a CC parent and does this as a job, and at no additional cost to parents - plus you get the free shipping. So if you are planning to get some CC materials anyway, please do get them through your local book representative!)
