Date and Time: Saturday, July 31st, 2010, 1:45 PM

Description: An orderly and unimaginative homeschool environment can produce pliant, disciplined children. Without creativity, however, we will fail to nurture the problem solvers and innovators of the future. Creativity is much more than being able to draw a pretty picture.

If you homeschool a creative child, we will provide you with some important tools to encourage this creative potential. (Room 117/118)

Workshop: Teaching the JR and SR High School Sciences at Home

Title: Teaching the JR and SR High School Sciences at Home

Speaker/Affiliation: Kyle McManamy/Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc.

Date and Time: Saturday, July 31st, 2010, 1:45 PM

Description: This seminar explains how any parent can help his or her children learn science at the upper levels. By the time a homeschooled student reaches high school, both the student and the parent should be able to learn by reading. Thus, we admonish the parent to learn the subject right along with the student. With both the parent and the student helping each other learn, an upper level science experience can be equally rewarding for both! In order to help the homeschooling parent plan his or her science curriculum, this session provides study timelines for both the science-oriented and the non science-oriented student. In addition, he also discusses the mathematical skills needed in order to maintain the proposed timeline. Finally, the session discusses the curriculum that will make it possible for the homeschooling parent to provide a quality high school science education for his or her children. (Room 104)
