    Looking for the Right Word

    A few months ago, Laredo, Texas reached "The End" of its only bookstore. The B. Dalton, a Barnes & Noble subsidiary, closed down on January 16, making Laredo (pop. 1/4 million) potentially the largest city nationwide without a single bookseller.

    Laredo isn't the only city where bookstores are disappearing: in January, Oakland, California said goodbye to its Barnes & Noble, the only major bookstore in the city of 400,000.

    In a New York art gallery, a new exhibit called Central Booking showcases what one article calls "strange relics of pre-Kindle civilization." The article continues, "It's perhaps fitting that physical books are finding homes in spaces typically reserved for aesthetic appraisal."

    It's not just the rise of electronic books cutting into reading nationwide.

    The American Library Association reported in 2009 that although library usage rose in 2008-2009, funding decreased across the nation, resulting in branch closings, staff reductions, and fewer new books. Similar problems confront school and college libraries.

    What's happening to all the books?

    More importantly, what's happening to all the people who read them?

    On Wednesday, Kansas City's school board voted to close almost half the city's schools because of a budget deficit. "Is anyone else ready to homeschool their children?" one attendee called out.

    Open a newspaper (one that hasn't gone out of business), search the Internet, or talk to a stranger on the street, and you'll find it hard to avoid the signs of our culture's rejection of words.

    "But we're surrounded by words!" you might say. Yes--and images--and sound bytes--most of them divorced from clear reasoning, historical context, rhetorical purpose, or even thoughtful consideration of their implications beyond use as marketing tools. American author Ernest Hemingway put it well: "All our words from loose using have lost their edge."

    Yet, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Lord spoke creation into being using words. His first story to man in the Bible was how He used words to name creation and speak it into existence.

    Our treatment of words has real consequences. As C.S. Lewis warned, "Don't say 'infinitely' when you mean 'very'; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite."

    At CC, our goal is to provide alternatives for families who want to reclaim a worldview founded on the Word. Our ability to learn and teach isn't beholden to a school system crumbling under government debts. We think hard about the consequences of ideas. We talk about a lot of books, and we uphold the correct use of words as a measure of man.

    Our goal, simply put, is to train ourselves and our children to talk about eternity by returning words to the center of our conversations.

    Won't you join us?

    James Dutton on Leigh at Lunch

    It's back!! Join me Wednesdays at 12 noon EST for my Blog Talk Radio show, Leigh at Lunch.

    James DuttonThis Wednesday, March 24 at noon, while I'm on tour (join me!) in the Northeast, I'll be sharing a pre-recorded conversation with astronaut Col. James P. Dutton, a CC dad.

    After flying over 100 combat hours with the U.S. Air Force, Dutton was selected in May 2004 as one of 14 members of the 19th NASA astronaut class.

    He is scheduled to join the the STS-131 mission, targeted for launch April 5, which will be shuttle Discovery's next-to-last flight and will deliver critical spare parts and cargo to the International Space Station.

    Col. Dutton and his wife, Erin, have four sons.

    Summer Practicums: Beyond the Book

    Homeschooling is a journey that takes vision and careful planning. Check your bearings and plan the best route for your family at Classical Conversations' free 3-day Parent Practicums.

    State Managers are working over-time with me this month and next to plan and prepare for Classical Conversations' signature events: the free 3-day Parent Practicums which will be held all over the country this spring and summer.

    This is really the heart and soul of Classical Conversations: to reach moms and dads and encourage them to educate their children from home and do it well using the model of classical education, and to inspire them to raise up children who will be great leaders for our country.

    This summer's practicums will focus on going Beyond a Book in educating our children and seeing them as souls to be nurtured for the glory of God instead of pragmatic products to be measured by man.

    In educating our children, it is important to understand that knowledge, understanding, and wisdom are not apprehended by a sacred, yet ever-altering, set of curriculum books that the state sets forth. In true education, an education that gives a student wings to fly and serve their life purpose, we have to learn to think beyond a book.

    CiRCE Institute founder, Andrew Kern, will visit in select cities via a multi-media presentation to share his heart for education that reclaims the whole student, challenging educators everywhere to adjust their thinking.

    Join us and other classical, home-educating parents in a free 3-day practicum near you...and let's go beyond a book together!

    Balancing My Expectations

    Often, I compare my marriage to a contra dance. My husband and I don’t waltz in perfect step. Instead, we go about our own business each day and reconnect by phone or at the dinner table or at work or with the children off and on throughout the day. Different people need us for different reasons, but we begin and end each day by facing one another.

    When we were first married, I was unreasonably disappointed, because I expected our marriage to be a waltz where we would work together in closely timed steps. Now I know that we are trustworthy dance partners who must be apart—but will return at the appropriate time.

    As difficult things happen in life, we wrestle and debate and struggle together within our family, but before the larger community, we present a united front. Just like generals who disagree about tactics but agree on the objective, we don’t need to give the enemy intelligence that allows him to capitalize on our weaknesses. So we fight over politics but vote the same way at the voting booth. We disagree on how to spend money, but the car dealer only knows that we are in confident agreement. We disagree on how the kids should be raised, but they know Mom’s answer is Dad’s answer and vice versa. We may argue over how to follow Jesus, but we attend church as a family.

    Teaching children is no different. In Classical Conversations, we meet as a community, hear new ideas, watch our children struggle and succeed, view other parenting styles, argue over philosophies and approaches, encourage one another to support our pastors, study academics, and decide where to put resources for service and community care. In the midst of the difficult task of discipling our children within a community, I may feel let down or neglected and even get angry or cry.

    I could make the same analogy to my church or my community association or my place of employment. It is not good to believe that work or school or marriage or any human institution will always be there for me in exactly the way I want. In order to behave as an adult, I recognize that differences and challenges will arise that make me feel uncomfortable, and then I pray for the wisdom to honor God while resolving the conflict.

    My husband will disappoint me; my children’s tutor will be unfair; my employees will disagree with me; my neighbors will insult me, and my children will disobey me. I may try to understand why these things happen, but mostly I will overreact, gossip, and feel rejected. With Paul (see Romans 7), I admit that I do what I wish I would not do. So, I’m trying to learn the difference between having high standards and having realistic expectations.

    To lead a healthy life, a God-honoring life, it is important to put the things to which I am committed in their proper perspective. Only Jesus is perfect. Only He is my Savior. He is the only one with whom I will ever truly waltz, because only He has the ability to keep us both in step. In front of our Father, He makes me look flawless.

    Love, Leigh

    Andrew Pudewa on Leigh at Lunch

    It's back!! Join me Wednesdays at 12 noon EST for my Blog Talk Radio show, Leigh at Lunch.

    Andrew PudewaThis Wednesday, March 17 at noon, I'll be talking to Andrew Pudewa.

    Andrew Pudewa is the director of the Institute for Excellence in Writing and a homeschooling father of seven.

    Presenting throughout North America, he addresses issues relating to teaching, writing, thinking, spelling, and music with clarity, insight, practical experience, and humor.

    His seminars for parents, students and teachers have helped transform many a reluctant writer and have equipped educators with powerful tools to dramatically improve students’ skills.

    Although he is a graduate of the Talent Education Institute in Japan, and holds a Certificate of Child Brain Development from the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, his best endorsement is from a young Alaskan boy who called him “the funny man with the wonderful words.” He and his beautiful, heroic wife Robin currently teach their three youngest at home.

    CC and the Five Canons of Rhetoric (Part 2)

    (Read Part 1)

    Classical Conversations' curriculum has been developed to draw students gradually into the practice of these rhetorical skills. Some of our Challenge curriculum looks unfamiliar or seems inadequate if compared to traditional education rather than to classical education. The intention was never to replicate course selections at a government high school or even to create one course in rhetoric.

    The Challenge curriculum integrates the canons of rhetoric into all assignments. It is impossible for a young student to learn anything, let alone to develop difficult rhetorical skills, over a single semester. These skills take years to practice and are applicable to all subjects.

    Look at math skills. If I’m going to teach you to solve two simultaneous equations like (1) x+ y = 4 and (2) 2x + y = 12, I have to make a number of decisions.

    I could invent an explanation that uses the elimination method or the substitution method. I need to decide if I’m going to rearrange the equations to solve for y first or x first and if I’m going to begin with equation 1 or 2. My style determines if I’m going to jump straight into the solution, or if I’m going to compare the problem to a simpler one first in order to explain the eventual solution. Besides calling upon my memorization of the ways to balance equations, I also want to keep in mind the things that caused me to struggle when I was a student so I will give clear explanations as a tutor. And finally, I can deliver the solution in a dry step-by-step lecture, or I can get my students laughing and asking questions and remembering that solving simultaneous equations is no harder now than fractions were five years ago.

    In every subject--in school and out--good communication demands consideration of the canons of rhetoric. As we progress through the year, I will be writing more about how to use rhetoric skills as a Challenge parent and tutor so that we may model for our students interesting and compelling ways to persuade others that the words we say are true.

    Love, Leigh

    Ray Moore on Leigh at Lunch (2)

    It's back!! Join me Wednesdays at 12 noon EST for my Blog Talk Radio show, Leigh at Lunch.

    E. Ray Moore, Jr.This Wednesday, March 10 at noon, I'll be continuing the conversation begun a few weeks ago with E. Ray Moore, Jr. Click here to listen to the archive of our first talk and think about questions you would like to ask, or topics you would like to hear more about.

    ---

    Mr. Moore--Bible teacher, Army Reserve Chaplain (Ret.), and campaign consultant--has served twenty-eight years in pastoral ministry as a campus pastor, pastor-teacher in the local church or as an Army Chaplain.

    He has served as a speaker-lecturer in a university setting on public policy, church-state and theological subjects. He has worked as a campus pastor at both the University of South Carolina and Purdue University.

    He and his wife, Gail, were selected as SC Parents of the Year for 2000 by Parents' Day Council, Washington, DC. They have four children and three grandchildren. They were home-schoolers from 1977-1994. They have had a long-term involvement in private Christian Education.

    Mr. Moore serves as President of Frontline Ministries; a Columbia, SC-based ministry, which focuses on prayer, revival and evangelism. Frontline Ministries also provides a chaplaincy service for small businesses, corporations, and institutions. Mr. Moore is also the director of the Exodus Mandate Project.

    CC and the Five Canons of Rhetoric (Part 1)

    Let's talk about rhetoric.

    Rhetorical skills, or the art of persuading others, can be divided into the Five Canons of Rhetoric: invention, arrangement, style, memory and delivery.

    Invention
    means finding something to say. Arrangement is how an author organizes the things he or she wants to say. Style is the way something will be said. Memory means not only memorizing the argument to be presented but the art of bringing all the things you remember into context in order to enhance the presentation. Delivery refers to the public presentation of information.

    For example, I could invent the words for a song, arrange them into rhythm and meter, determine that it is going to be a folk style song, memorize it in light of my appreciation for songwriters who influenced my love of music, and deliver the song as a round to be sung in many parts. The purpose of the song could be to persuade listeners to care for their communities.

    We live in a time when anyone can upload their opinions via words, music, or video and call themselves artists. This easy access has greatly reduced our ability to recognize, let alone our willingness to reward, artists who put enormous effort into crafting a message.

    Why pay to attend an opera with singers who have spent a lifetime developing their voices when you can laugh at a video of people hurting themselves online? Why produce a thoughtful TV show with gifted writers when narcissists will perform on reality shows for free? Why study the Constitution when charismatic politicians tell you they can give taxpayers anything the majority wants?

    Families who appreciate the classical model recognize that the current deluge of trivia and the trivial has damaged our ability to engage in meaningful, responsible discourse. They want to train their children in the art of thinking and using words to clearly express those thoughts. Practicing the five canons of rhetoric inculcates these abilities.

    “I Am” – The Biblical Foundations of Grammar

    In Exodus 3:14, “God said to Moses, ‘I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: “I AM has sent me to you.”’”

    The name God gives for Himself—YHWH, “I AM”—demonstrates that in addition to being the author and creator of the world, the Lord has put His stamp on grammar and language itself. “I am” is the foundational form of every sentence structure in every language.

    It is the foundation of verb forms. “I am” is the active voice, indicative mood, simple present tense, first person singular conjugation for the infinitive “to be”, and all verb structures are formed in comparison to the infinitive “to be”. From that basic conjugation emerge variations in voice (passive), mood (imperative, subjunctive), tense (past, future...), person (second, third) and number (plural).

    It is the foundation of sentences. All sentences have a nominative (subject) and a verb, just like His name: “I” (nominative) + “am” (verb). There are only 3 kinds of verbs and all follow the “I am” pattern. The sentence “I am” contains an intransitive verb. Add a predicate nominative, “I am God,” and it becomes a linking verb. Or add an accusative noun as in, “I am creating art,” and it becomes part of a transitive verb phrase.

    Even pronoun systems begin with “I.” The first person singular pronouns (I, my, myself, mine) are so called because they are listed first, and the singular appears before the plural.

    Jesus says in John 8:58, “Before Abraham was, I AM.” What an amazing picture of the truth that God is not only known through language; He is the Word (logos), the Lord of language as well.

    Love, Leigh
