VaHomeschoolers will hold its 2014 Conference and Resource Fair March 21-22 at The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen, in the Richmond area.
This year, I have the privilege of presenting three conference sessions. Friday I’ll present Homeschooling 101: Homeschooling for Non-Homeschoolers. This session is a great intro to homeschooling for people who aren’t already in the homeschooling community — educators, legislators, the media, grandparents, librarians, and parents who are interested in homeschooling but don’t know much about who is homeschooling, why, and how.
Saturday morning I’ll present Engaged Homeschooling, and Saturday afternoon will be Body of Learning: Phys Ed, Sports, and Homeschooling the Athlete.
Read about these and the other sessions making up the 2014 VaHomeschoolers Conference session lineup, including those offered by keynote speaker Susan Wise Bauer, author of The Well-Trained Mind and featured speaker Julie Bogart, founder of BraveWriter.
You’ll see lots of other great sessions, regardless of where you are in your homeschooling journey — from preschool to high school.
VaHomeschoolers offers sessions about many different approaches to home education, trusting parents to “take what works and leave the rest.” VaHomeschoolers conferences are also inclusive, meaning the atmosphere supports homeschoolers who have a wide variety of religious and political backgrounds.
Looks like this year’s conference could have high attendance; some sessions will close out, so if there are particular speakers you want to hear, be sure to register early.
Oh — and one thing that is different — there are more sessions being offered on Friday, so the conference is especially packed with good things this year.
Hope to see you there!
