Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Charlotte Mason Meets Plato/Restoring the Joy of Education in Your Home 
In Plato’s Republic, the ancient philosopher advocated educational methods that would best suit the individual to serve as political creatures. When Susan Schaeffer Macaulay popularized the Charlotte Mason method of education with her book, For the Children’s Sake, she promoted the notion that Christian educators are preparing students to serve as citizens of a heavenly kingdom. As parents intent on knowing our children and providing an education suitable for their individual needs, the Charlotte Mason approach can liberate us to discover once again the joy that can be found in the adventure of learning.
Home Schooling with Passion and Creativity 
If the pressure of academic success is robbing your home school experience of passion, perhaps a time of refreshing and reevaluation is in order.  In this session, we will look at how many of the most popular paradigms in contemporary home education often leave the student bored and uninspired while driving the parent/teacher to distraction and disillusion.  How can we embrace the notion that “Education is a life” and apply that through principles of passion and creativity?  A look at the lives of such notable “misfits” as Thomas Alva Edison, Winston Churchill, Florence Nightingale and others will inspire you to help your child find their passion and tap into their God given gifts of creativity.
Only the Rarest Kind of Best/Classic Literature for Children
It was Walter de la Mare, the English poet and storyteller to children that first said, “Only the rarest kind of best in anything is good enough for the young.”  As parents endeavoring to choose literature that qualifies as art, the choices can be daunting.  A pictorial look at the history of children’s books over the past century will reveal how certain works made their way into the canon of children’s literature and how these works continue to speak to timeless issues of the human heart.  This delightful look at some of the finest work done for children over the past century, will inspire, inform, and equip parents in their pursuit of the “rarest kind of best.”

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Rebecca "Rea" Berg and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
