•, Dr. Susan Berry

The video series is specifically focused on at-home learning during this time and is based on an American classical approach to education.In one of the opening videos, Dr. Kathleen O'Toole, assistant provost for K-12 education at Hillsdale College, said, "Classical education, at its root, is common-sense education."

O'Toole said the purpose of the series is to show parents, guardians, or other caretakers of children that teaching expertise is not required for children to achieve academic success.

"You have already within you the things that you need to help your children continue to make progress at home," she explained.

In addition to addressing the concept of at-home learning and parenting for academic success, the Hillsdale video series covers the topics of phonograms, Latin, Singapore Math, science, classical literature, composition, history, grammar, physical education, and more.
