Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Choosing Curriculum That's Right For You
Buying curriculum because it works for your friend's kids is probably the LAST reason you should buy it. You alone know what's best for your child. You even know what he already knows! Let's look at three types of curriculum: the Classroom Approach, the Life Approach, and the Applied Approach. What is the teacher's role and the student's role in each? Figure out which suits you, relax in your decision, then take charge of the Curriculum Hall!

Are You Leaving (GASP!) Gaps? – Tammy Duby, Keynote Speaker
Homeschool parents are scared to death of leaving "gaps." How about you? Are you so fearful of meeting requirements set by someone else that you have lost sight of your own goals? This class will help you to focus on why you are homeschooling, whom you are seeking to please, what is important and what isn't. Learn to CHOOSE your gaps, and capitalize on all the good stuff, the lasting forever stuff. Otherwise, you may be in danger of filling all the "gaps" and missing the whole point.

Basic Folds and How to Use Them – Tammy Duby, Keynote Speaker
Parents ask, “What are the basic folds for Lap Books™? How do I choose a fold for a project? What should my students write inside?” Come learn the basic folds from Dinah Zike’s Big Book of Books. I’ll show you how to find writing cues in your curriculum so you can match writing projects to folds. You will be off and running once you see how to help your students “own” information.

Bringing Science to Life – Tammy Duby, Keynote Speaker
Why do we shy away from the topic that is likely to be the favorite for our students? Is it too early to start teaching science? Is it too late? Find out how to bring learning to life in your homeschool with a science program that emphasizes basic science skills: Observation, Classification, Communication and more. I’ll show you my “Science Scrapbook” so you can see how I do science with my students. Learn how to wisely choose curriculum or confidently compile your own, while bringing the joy of discovery learning to your kitchen table.

What’s After 8th?
Grade, that is. Informative workshop gives a rationale for continuing the homeschool journey through 12th grade. Special insight given into transcripts, grading, credits, PSAT, SAT, CLEP and post high school options. See how these last years can be the ones most treasured. Tammy’s son Tobin, now 21, is an Eagle Scout, National Merit Scholar, and a student at Patrick Henry College.

Lap BooksTM Across the Curriculum – Tammy Duby, Keynote Speaker
This is a hands-on class! I’ll bring the scissors, glue and paper and will teach you how to help your students make timeless teaching aids that will integrate reading and writing, math and science, map and globe skills, and critical thinking. Textbookers and Unit Studiers alike will find these foldables easy to make, and a joy to use. Stimulate creativity while putting the responsibility for learning on the student. Let’s get busy!

Lesson Planning 101 – Tammy Duby, Keynote Speaker
You want to have the best year yet, but don’t know how to organize the piles of curriculum you’ve purchased for your kids? I’ll show you different lesson plan formats, and how to plan for several grade levels. Start using your time wisely and you’ll feel like you have more of it. And you can stop feeling guilty about never getting around to all that great stuff you bought!

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Tammy Duby 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.
