Speakers

Leigh Bortins and CC Writing Essentials Seminar
Wednesday and Thursday, September 23 & 24
7am to 1pm at GWL


Since the pen is mightier than the sword, writing is the most important skill we can teach our children. Having spent a good portion of her summer learning and speaking, Leigh Bortins is ready to share with Essentials tutors and parents the powerful writing tools of structure and style. Please join her as she inspires and instructs using the Institute for Excellence's Structure and Style, the writing method used in CC's Essentials. Our learning time together promises to be fruitful and fun!

Becky Dunlop of The Heritage Foundation
Wednesday Evening, September 23 at GWL

CC is proud to present Becky Dunlop of The Heritage Foundation. Mrs. Dunlop served in President Ronald Reagan's White House and is currently Vice President of External Relations at The Heritage Foundation, which is the nation's most broadly supported public policy research institute. The Heritage Foundation's mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, (particularly family and religion) and a strong national defense.

Because of her personal faith, Mrs. Dunlop is often sought out to discuss the role of faith in public life and in policy development. For more information on Mrs. Dunlop or the Heritage Foundation, please visit their website at: www.heritage.org

Following Mrs. Dunlop's talk, please join Leigh Bortins and the Classical Conversations staff and families for an informal "Meet and Greet" also at the Great Wolf Lodge.

Visit the Classical Conversations website, under Event Calendar, to register for these events. Hope to see you there!
