"The Last Great Teachers: Why Our Children Are Being Poorly Educated" is the next topic for Magnolia Manor on the Coast’s Renaissance Lecture Series. The guest speaker will be Richard Braithwaite, owner of The Braithwaite Learning Center. The event is slated for July 9 at 5 p.m.
Braithwaite, who taught English for 30 years at The Savannah Country Day School, will cover a variety of topics in the shift in teaching methods over the past 50 years. He will touch on the good and the bad of teaching trends and how universities are training new teachers to see their profession as a social science. Braithwaite believes that becoming a teacher is both a calling and an art and the techniques currently used in the classroom are taking the heart and soul out of teaching.
Each month, Magnolia Manor hosts the Renaissance Lecture Series at its Richmond Hill campus. The event begins at 5 p.m. and includes a light supper. After the guest concludes his/her speech, a question and answer session follows. The event is free and open to the public, but guests are asked to RSVP by calling Jennifer Franks at 912-756-4300.
