This event will take place Thursday, Feb. 20 at 4:00 PM in SB Hall, Multi-Purpose Room.

Eight Patterns for Leading Seminar Discussions: Imaginative and expository literature come in a range of genres. It makes sense, then, that strategies for good discussions vary accordingly. This lecture introduces and models each of the eight patterns Cana Academy has identified and developed. Lecture starts at 4 PM.

Effective Leadership in a Seminar Discussion: Teachers of imaginative and expository literature are typically well-read. often, however, they do not have a clear understanding of how to lead a seminar. This lecture will identify pitfalls to avoid, how to plan for and execute an effective discussion, and ways to improve the questions by which the discussion is led. Lecture starts at 7:30 PM.
