Does everyone have the Troubadour's Top Ten Movie List? Very good except Netflix carries almost Zilch on the list.
David
37:30
Netflix is terrible
Paul Arnold
38:17
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!
John
38:31
@David Agreed. If it were up to just me it would be gone but our family is a democracy!
Walt Sarafin
38:40
hello Donny
John Kamprath
38:59
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.
Walt Sarafin
39:20
Hello Carrol
Walt Sarafin
40:18
Do you remember NcConnells Mill?
Carol
40:54
No, I don't recall it
Walt Sarafin
41:47
sorry maby I am mistaken In slippery rock was that youy ?
Roberto Riveros
42:00
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.
Carol
42:39
No, not me.
Lisa Street
42:59
What is the effect of skilled athletes being hired to coach a high school team and then expected to teach classes on the side?
David
43:13
that's a bad practice
John
45:01
I pre-submitted a question but for the life of me I cannot remember what it was to be able to ask it again.
John Kamprath
45:35
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.
John Hissong
47:07
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.
Linda
47:41
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.
David
48:17
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.
Walt Sarafin
50:03
I went to public \\\\
Amy Z
50:09
mind blowing!!
John
50:24
@John Hissong. Ha, your story sounds like something the actor John Houseman would have said and done.

clap clap clap!!!
Walt Sarafin

I went to public school and had a tr\
Linda

Father Paul there is no need to appolgize
Walt Sarafin
54:01
But I am typing in the dark and with a flat keyboard that I am not used to.
Walt Sarafin
54:54
I wanted to say that I went to public school and had a

Fr Check is knocking it out of the park. God is being itself. I AM

experiance.
nczupik
55:33
How much Latin do the students learn in a Chesterton Academy?
Rose Gawarecki
56:31
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
Amy Z
56:40
WHat was the Latin question Dr. Fahey said the medievals changed the Quid est veritas question to?
David
56:51
"what is truth"
David
57:06
oops
Amy Z
57:24
yes but they changed it to a phrase with "vir" in it
Rose Gawarecki
58:06
Est vir qui adest
Amy Z
58:20
@Rose - thank you!
Walt Sarafin
59:08
Rose it was KC.
John Hissong
59:12
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 Sarafin
59:23
not Orlando
Amy Z
59:25
yes!
Amy Z
59:37
book recs!
Rose Gawarecki
59:48
@Walt you're right! My memory isn't what it used to be - some of the conferences especially blend together
Walt Sarafin
01:00:19
They do. and I miss them and all of you.
Donny Brady
01:01:04
Glad you are online Walt
Walt Sarafin
01:01:25
The emperor has declaired.
Walt Sarafin
01:02:48
I can get on line tonight as this my day off and I'm not at work.
Linda
01:03:47
I'm glad that you could make it, Walt.
Angie Wilderman
01:04:07
like the military
Walt Sarafin
01:04:26
I do miss all of you and the conferances.
Amy Z
01:04:27
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?
John Hissong
01:05:23
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.
Walt Sarafin
01:05:30
There is a war on men today.
David
01:05:37
Indeed
Linda
01:05:47
My oldest son was involved in an organization known as Ameri Corps. He was involved in doing various service projects around the country.
Walt Sarafin
01:06:33
Dead beat daddies, bigots, etc. all men.
David
01:06:52
The unwed mother as "hero"
Amy Z
01:06:54
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)
Amy Z
01:07:56
the Exodus 90 is popular with men in my parish.
Walt Sarafin
01:10:00
The war on men can be seen especially in divorce court.
Samwise G
01:11:24
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??
Tyler
01:11:34
What advice do the panelists have for teachers in Catholic schools?
John Hissong
01:11:41
Does anyone have a reference to the book that Daniel Kerr mentioned on rites of passage.
Bill
01:11:51
The problem is trying to have young men really understand that they matter to themselves, then they can see how important education is.
Juan Masters
01:14:37
“Leaving Boyhood Behind” by Jason Craig
Amy Z
01:14:44
Is true education attainable outside of an education focused on CHrist and eternal beatitude?
Amy Z
01:16:53
i.e. are things like Classical Charter (public) schools or great books schools that do not have a Christian ethos a good thing?
John Hissong
01:17:13
Juan, thank you very much for the book.
David
01:17:24
They're better than the govt alternatives
Walt Sarafin
01:17:32
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.
Linda
01:18:26
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.
Amy Z
01:18:49
Beauty in the Word
Walt Sarafin
01:19:13
I suffered through public edu. they wasted a lot of my time.
Amy Z
01:19:14
Beaty for Truth's Sake
Lisa Street
01:19:15
Yes, if you have parents who talk to their children about their life as a Catholic Christian. Have you ever heard of afterschooling.
Amy Z
01:19:31
Beauty for Truth's Sake, sorry
Carol
01:19:35
yup, mature learner
Juan Masters
01:19:44
Your welcome, John
David
01:21:42
Lucky Jim is a wonderful book about university life
John Hissong
01:22:10
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.”
John Hissong
01:22:58
Eisenhower’s library at his retirement home in Gettysburg is full of Louis L’Amour’s westerns.
Amy Z
01:22:59

Little House is autobiographical
Bonnie B.
01:25:58
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Amy Z
01:26:27
Dr. Pearce, read her the Odyssey - teach her about Penelope! Probably kids version is best!!
Walt Sarafin
01:26:27
I have read that one. (Strong Fathers...)
Edward Check
01:26:46
Joseph Pearce autobiography is of course good book on his education
Paul Arnold
01:27:13
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!
Lisa Street
01:27:20
Thanks Fr. Paul!
Rose Gawarecki
01:27:22

Thank you everyone for a fun and informative evening
Carol
01:28:27
thanks gentlemen, always a treat to listen to you
Donny Brady
01:28:47
Good to hear from you Walt. Hopefully the conference is a go next year.
John Hissong
01:28:58
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.
Lisa Street
01:29:05
If you are stuck with a bad public school in the South, don't you think we should not abandon them
