Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Homeschool: Why Stay the Course?
Jessica gives a stirring rendition of men in history who stayed the course and impacted history. But how could just an average homeschooling mom impact historyespecially a tired mom who is wondering, if she should continue homeschooling? Jessica shares numerous experiences and stories from her own life where the benefits and rewards of homeschoolers prompted her to stay her course. Jessica will not only help you see how immensely important your job really is, but she will inspire you to "stay the course!"

Hands-on: Netting Retention plus Creativity
Study after study has proven the incredible value of hands-on teaching. Yet, even though we know something is true, that does not always make it easy to implement. Jessica has spent her life teaching hands-on. In fact, it is her gift, and she finds it difficult to teach any other way. Let Jessica share how she thinks and teaches hands-on naturally and easily, without fanfare. You will be amazed at the increase in retention and unleashing of creativity hands-on teaching will bring to your children.

Jessica's Gems for Beginners
What inside tips would a teacher of thirty years and a homeschooling mom/teacher of twenty-four years share with moms just beginning to homeschool? Come hear Jessica Hulcy share her wealth of practical advice and information. In her hilarious Jessica-style, she recommends what young moms should do and not do when they begin homeschooling. Be enlightened and encouraged and entertained, all at the same time!

Education Reserved for Princes and Nobility
As far back as Alexander the Great, fatherly kings have secured learned tutors to educate their princely sons. Too often tutors only educated the minds of their pupils. Mentoring, a combination of tutoring and discipleship, educated both mind AND heart.
Jessica Hulcy, co-author of KONOS Curriculum and homeschooling mom of 24 years, believes home schoolers have the rare opportunity to employ the form of education once reserved for princes and nobility, the expanded form of tutoring called mentoring to raise up the next generation of princes and nobility to serve the one true King.

Relationships, Relationships, Relationships Are Forever
It is right and prudent to set academic, work skills, character and spiritual goals for our children when we begin home schooling. It is right that parents should follow schedule and maintain standards and exercise consistent discipline to mold their children. But sometimes relationships with our children, spouses, and friends, those precious jewels of eternity, get scheduled right into oblivion we home school. Come hear Jessica Hulcy, co-author of KONOS Character Curriculum and 24 year home school veteran speak about how to establish and maintain those most important itemsrelationships.

Analyzing Literature: A Slice of Life
Jessica Hulcy, co-author of KONOS Curriculum and homeschooling mom of 24 years, views great literature as a slice of life through which the reader can vicariously experience a multitude of life situations. Further, Jessica believes literature can be a vehicle used to train children in attentiveness, discernment, consequential behavior, relationships, and much more. Jessica will share methods to analyze literature and actually work through an analysis of The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare.

Jessicas tips are such a relief to moms who avoid the task of teaching that which they find most difficultwriting.

You Don't Have to Live in a Pig Pen if You Homeschool
Home schooling is a full-time job stacked on top of another full-time job mothering and homemaking. How can ANYONE teach all her children, plus and get the laundry done, fix meals, nurse the baby, and STILL have a clean home? Jessica Hulcy, mother of four boys, co-author of KONOS Character Curriculum, and home schooling mom of 24 years shares not only how she keeps her home clean but also the importance of doing so.

Discovery Learning Fosters Critical Thinking
Scientific evidence supports discovery learning as one of the primary keys to developing critical thinking skills in children.

Choosing Curriculum Like a Pro
Entering a curriculum hall can be like being run over by a steamroller. Confusion, frustration, and a feeling of being overwhelmed by a myriad of choices set in. Jessica Hulcy, co-author of KONOS Curriculum and homeschooling mom of 24 years, shares her objective curriculum evaluation grid that allows parents to take the guesswork out of choosing curriculum by assessing each curriculum and determining whether that particular curriculum meets the specific needs of their child and their family.

Teaching Everyone Together to Build Family and Stay Sane
Jessica Hulcy, co-author of KONOS Curriculum, has been teaching home school for 24 years and still claims to be sane! She credits multi-level teaching with allowing her to teach as much as possible to all her children at one time thereby keeping her sanity while also building family togetherness. Jessica will show actual video footage of her teaching her boys using the unit method to effectively impart knowledge to children of varying ages at the same time...challenging the oldest yet not frustrating the youngest.

Teaching the Child Rather than the Curriculum

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Jessica Hulcy and other workshop leaders and speakers.
