Wisdom, Not Just Facts—Illustrating the Value of a Story-Driven Education

2017 Thrive! The NCHE Homeschool Conference
General interest to all parents

Teaching wisdom should be one aim of the educational process. Facts without context and narrative are drained of meaning. Michael outlines the benefits of the story-driven approach to teaching. Showing the value of this approach for students of all ages, he explains the connection between the stories we tell and our worldview, breathing life into history and making it relevant for walking wisely. By entering into the Great Conversation, we grapple with the great questions and learn the lessons of the past in order to apply them as we seek to live the lives God has called us to live.
