Presentation Titles & Descriptions

WRITING: It Is a Hill Worth Dying On
Yes, it is a hill worth dying on, but you don’t have to climb Mt. Everest. Proper writing skills are essential to every student. Extensive "How to Write" curriculum is often overwhelming for both students and parents; therefore, writing becomes an unpleasant chore rather than a fun engaging opportunity. Students end up writing for the sake of completing an assignment: fill the paper with words and check off the "To Do" list. The areas I will be discussing include the importance of selecting a topic, the benefits of identifying specific guidelines, and the necessity of developing critical thinking in writing. When we simplify our goals for writing and focus on mastering the basics, our children no longer feel overwhelmed; they realize they can do it. And parents gain confidence; they realize they have the tools it takes to climb this mountain – they realize they don’t have to climb Mt. Everest.

Breathing Life Into your Language Arts
Great literature CAN provide the motivation to learn language arts. While your 3rd throught 12th grade student reads novels they love, they can develop stronger comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, grammar, writing and critical thinking skills. TLP can bring fresh air to your language arts program.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Kris Cordell 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.
