Ep. 39 – Carrie Eben on Intellectual Virtues, Assessment, and Poetic Knowledge

This is Episode 39 of the Consortium Podcast, an academic audio blog sponsored by Kepler Education.

In this episode, Scott Postma talks with Carrie Eben, a classical educator and the founding consultant at Classical Eben. Carrie was introduced to classical education and Douglas Wilson’s book Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning in 1999 when she began working at St. Augustine’s Classical School in Tulsa. Since then, she has provided a classical education for her children in both private, classical schools (where she taught) and classical homeschool. She joined Classical Conversations in 2010 as an Essentials of the English Language tutor in Keller, Texas and has served in many other leadership and teaching capacities. Today she serves on the board of Sager Classical Academy, a classical Christian school in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Carrie holds a BSEd degree from John Brown University and MSEd from Oklahoma State University and is currently pursuing doctoral studies at Faulkner University.

Together with Dr. Albert Cheng, director of the Classical Education Research Lab at the University of Arkansas, Carrie has a research article forthcoming in The Consortium Journal, “Assessing the Pedagogical Power of Poetry for Poetic Knowledge.”

In the podcast, Carrie mentioned the book, Deep in Thought: A Practical Guide to Teaching for Intellectual Virtues.
