Who is Plutarch? Why are his works important to a good education? How do we approach Plutarch in K-12 education? Four teachers join us to talk about their joyful experiences teaching Plutarch in both classrooms and homeschools.
- Philip Schaffer: Taught Plutarch in a number of high school courses: Rhetoric, Composition, Latin, and Ancient History. He adapted sections from the Lives into Latin for his students to translate.
- Dawn Garrett: Teaches Plutarch in homeschool co-ops using Anne White’s Guides.
- Lisa Mayeux: Leads both middle school and high school students in Scholé Group with Classical Academic Press.
- Mrs. Peach Smith: Read and loved Plutarch as a child. She has passed her love of Plutarch to her children and her high school students.
