The following is a list of recommended resources from a presentation given in Seward, NE for CCLE XXIV entitled Table Talk—Classical Morning Meeting: A Dose of Daily Beauty.

Description: In a busy day filled with excellent literature, captivating history, linguistic pursuits and more, it can be difficult to carve out time to reflect upon and receive the great works of Western art and music. Bringing together all ages and disciplines, a brief “morning meeting” incorporating classical art and music can set a beautiful tone that rings true the whole day long. Join Marie as she shares her vision for a classical morning meeting, explore how she has adapted it throughout her years in her home and co-op, and brainstorm how such an idea might serve your students.
