Face to Face with Greatness Seminars:

The previous  Face to Face With Greatness: A Thomas Jefferson Education Seminar held in Portland, September 2008, and attended by people from Washington, the Greater Portland Region, Salem and as far away as the San Fransisco Bay Areas!  The two days provided a unique opportunity to discuss the information presented in Oliver DeMille's book. The Seminar also discussed the cycles in history and how they affect education today. Lots of references to many more books to study in exploring more depth on the material presented.

A look back at some of the great men and women who significantly influenced Math, Art and Science in history had developed their genius through those who mentored them, gave particpants examples of where Leadership Education worked.  There is an exahustive list of classics on math, art and science to use with children while they are very young, providing a foundation for them as a spring-board for their own self-directed scholar phase was quite enlightening. An overview on the Phases was presented.

The differences between book discussion vs colloquium were explained and the insights gained by a simulation of a colloquium were experienced. Emphasis was made on the need for parents being mentored with their own educations were motivating. Children follow the lead of their parents and those with very young children certainly felt that this has given them a significant head start in helping prepare them for the 'school years' more effectively. Those with older children learned ways in which they can improve right now with the focus and direction they are leading their children in. 

Motivation for parents to continue working on their own adult scholar phase and how to get mentoring will help prepare them more effectively for the developing needs of their children. Participants were fed, inspired and excited to the things they can do now to Inspire the children in their lives.

Seminar #2 TJEd Revisited: You, not Them  is the Second in the Face to Face Series answers the major questions which Teachers and Parents find the greatest challenges with the transition of youth into scholar phase -- So this is one not to miss -- you may attend these seminars in any order!

How can a generation that wasn’t mentored in the classics, mentor their own children in the classics?
Do you want to help your children get a superb, leadership education… but just aren’t sure how?
