I’m honored to be guest posting today over at Classical Conversations at Home about Remembering What It Is Like To Learn Something New. If you aren’t familiar with the classical model of education, this post about going gluten-free might be a good little introduction.
Here’s a little snippet:
“Over a year ago, I got a phone call from my husband. He was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. The only thing I knew about Celiac Disease was that people had to eat gluten-free. Of course, even that was a bit vague since I didn’t really understand the term “gluten-free” except that he shouldn’t have wheat.
I had to dive into research mode – learning new terminology, consulting with friends who had learned before me, and reading everything I could on the internet. I found out that I had to worry about wheat, barley, rye, and oats, and that those can be hidden in other strangely named ingredients. I first started with some basics we could eat, but clearly I wasn’t done in my learning. ”
