Why don’t Classical Conversations directors mark students’ papers?

9 August 2021

It is our desire to let parents experience the joy of homeschooling their children in the manner that best fits their family dynamics, while still using the Classical Conversations model. Directors exist to demonstrate this model to parents and students. They support and encourage, but they do not take over the role of the parent. When parents grade their student’s papers, they see the areas where their student needs help and further study. This information is not as beneficial to the director as it is to the parent, who remains the primary teacher. Each family has their own standard of acceptable and unacceptable work. Having parents grade the work keeps parents in control of their goals for their students.
