You're welcome Walt - glad we got it worked out! Sad to not have an in-person conference this year

I do miss it I was going to go to the one in Stubi nvill but it got cancled for co19
Hopefully in 2021!

Does everyone have the Troubadour's Top Ten Movie List? Very good except Netflix carries almost Zilch on the list.
Netflix is terrible
I’m so looking forward to joining the Chestertonians here from Ashland, OR, the home of Shakespeare in the US. My last Chesterton meeting was in Lawrence, KS with John Senior and Dennis Quinn in ~1978. As a member of the first official class of the Pearson program, I’m anxious to hear your thoughts!
@David Agreed. If it were up to just me it would be gone but our family is a democracy!
As Fran Crotty (RIP), co-founder of Kolbe Academy in 1980, would say: a school is nothing more than a student, a teacher, and a curriculum.
Do you remember NcConnells Mill?
No, I don't recall it
sorry maby I am mistaken In slippery rock was that youy ?
Question for Dale: How can we make students attain longer attention spans in class? For me it is so difficult nowadays with so many distractors.
No, not me.
What is the effect of skilled athletes being hired to coach a high school team and then expected to teach classes on the side?
that's a bad practice
I pre-submitted a question but for the life of me I cannot remember what it was to be able to ask it again.
Coaching, as a rhetorical approach, is beneficial in that it aims at developing the student as a self-learner, as a coach aims at developing a self-performing athlete. The coach needs to be a master of the subject he teaches.
At my high school, which took academics very seriously, the head football coach was a classics teacher, usually teaching Virgil. His fellow coaches thought he was kidding when he told them at coaching conferences what he thought. On 15 Mar our senior year, one of the team members, Brian McGraw, “assassinated” him with a rubber knife when he came into the classroom. Without missing a beat, he said, “Et tu, MacGraw. Detention.” Some coaches are good educators.
It depends upon the teacher. My freshman geography teacher was the wrestling coach. He had us pick a topic from a list and had us report on it. When I missed the point on New Orleans' Bourbon Street, he was able to fill the class in on what was important. My geometry teacher, the track coach, was a completely different story. I remember some of the discouraging things that he said to us.
I had a very good history teacher who coached baseball. It's the phys ed majors without any real subject expertise who are the problem.
I went to public \\\\
@John Hissong. Ha, your story sounds like something the actor John Houseman would have said and done.

How much Latin do the students learn in a Chesterton Academy?
I believe that students are required to take 2 years and then have the option to either continue or switch to Spanish. That's how it was at least at Chesterton Academy of the Twin Cities when I went there
WHat was the Latin question Dr. Fahey said the medievals changed the Quid est veritas question to?
"what is truth"
yes but they changed it to a phrase with "vir" in it
Est vir qui adest
@Rose - thank you!
Rose it was KC.
The teacher was Paul Nemec. He was also in the schools Athletic Hall of Fame when he himself was a student. The “Brutus,” God help us, became an attorney.
@Walt you're right! My memory isn't what it used to be - some of the conferences especially blend together
They do. and I miss them and all of you.
Glad you are online Walt
The emperor has declaired.
I can get on line tonight as this my day off and I'm not at work.
I'm glad that you could make it, Walt.
like the military
I do miss all of you and the conferances.
I think what Mr. Kerr is talking about is why the Marine Corps makes such good men ( I am a little biased) - but yes - how outside of good military training do we get this?
Street gangs have “rites” of passage for entrance and exit: a brutal beating by the rest of the gang. A satanic perversion of the good.
There is a war on men today.
My oldest son was involved in an organization known as Ameri Corps. He was involved in doing various service projects around the country.
Dead beat daddies, bigots, etc. all men.
The unwed mother as "hero"
Actually I would love to hear how all the panelists in their own spheres of education might help boys become men - in the seminary, higher education, high school (co-ed and all-male)
the Exodus 90 is popular with men in my parish.
The war on men can be seen especially in divorce court.
what do you suggest for homeschoolers who keep their teen boys home for high school and they are mostly around homeschool moms and some seem resentful??
What advice do the panelists have for teachers in Catholic schools?
Does anyone have a reference to the book that Daniel Kerr mentioned on rites of passage.
The problem is trying to have young men really understand that they matter to themselves, then they can see how important education is.
“Leaving Boyhood Behind” by Jason Craig
Is true education attainable outside of an education focused on CHrist and eternal beatitude?
i.e. are things like Classical Charter (public) schools or great books schools that do not have a Christian ethos a good thing?
Juan, thank you very much for the book.
They're better than the govt alternatives
This just isn't the same as all of us getting together as a people who believe the same things. I do miss all of you.
I have an older brother who is a retired school teacher and administrator. He doesn't have much to say about public education that's very good.
Beauty in the Word
I suffered through public edu. they wasted a lot of my time.
Beaty for Truth's Sake
Yes, if you have parents who talk to their children about their life as a Catholic Christian. Have you ever heard of afterschooling.
Beauty for Truth's Sake, sorry
yup, mature learner
Your welcome, John
Lucky Jim is a wonderful book about university life
A common misconception, which Dr. Fahey just helped to propagate, is that the English word “education” came from the Latin word “educere,” (to lead out). It actually comes from the Latin word “educare” which means …. “to educate.”
Eisenhower’s library at his retirement home in Gettysburg is full of Louis L’Amour’s westerns.
has anyone read "The Rector of Justin" by Louis Auchincloss?
my grandmother loved L'Amour
Learning through stories is always best.
Anne of Green Gables
Not in Farmer Boy
Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters, Meg Meeker
Little House is autobiographical
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Dr. Pearce, read her the Odyssey - teach her about Penelope! Probably kids version is best!!
I have read that one. (Strong Fathers...)
Joseph Pearce autobiography is of course good book on his education
I’ve known Joseph and Dale for many years, but it’s a real pleasure to be introduced to William Fahey. Cheers to you William!
Thanks Fr. Paul!
I'll collect questions from this chat box for the future session if anyone wants to get last minute ones in - otherwise email email@example.com
October 20th for the next summit on "Lepanto!"
Thank you everyone for a fun and informative evening
thanks gentlemen, always a treat to listen to you
Good to hear from you Walt. Hopefully the conference is a go next year.
Louis L’Amour’s novels have many strong female characters. They’re actually pretty good. Folks look down on Westerns as cliches, but there’s a lot of traditional wisdom there.
If you are stuck with a bad public school in the South, don't you think we should not abandon them
gracias a todos Excelente
God bless all of you my fellow Chestertonions.
