Monday, April 15

Articulating a Compelling Vision of a Good Man in our Time: What? and Why?

The main purpose of the first day is to articulate visions of what a good man can be in today’s world, focusing on central aspects of a man’s life. The visions are made to avoid the twin foes of education, dogmatism and relativism, being general enough to be meaningful for nearly every man, while being open to the particularities of the lives of individuals. The second goal will be to articulate a robust case for why it is in the life-interest of boys and young men to discipline themselves to grow into such good men.

4:00-4:50          How did we get here? Why can’t/won’t we define what a good man is?

5:00-6:00          Why do we need to define what a good man is and how might that definition avoid the minefields of the culture wars?

6:00-7:00          Dinner

7:00-8:00          What is a good man?

Tuesday, April 16

The second day will focus on sharing best practices for how to teach and support boys and young men in their path toward becoming good men through curricula, co-curriculars, and service learning.

8:30-10:00        How do we teach our students healthy masculinity? A two-week mini-course, Barbara Van Drie, M.S., LPC-S, Director of Counseling, St. Mark's School of Texas

10:15-11:30      Teaching to our boys’ minds: Models for one-week, one trimester, one year, and scope and sequence for 1-12

11:30-12:30      Lunch

12:30-1:45        Teaching to our boys’ hearts: Journaling in classwork and advisory
