Will the real Critical Thinking please stand up?
Critical thinking is a buzz word used in educational and academic circles. But what is real critical thinking? In this workshop learn how to build a critical thinking lens with your child in four easy steps. This lens will give your child a powerful tool for evaluating any scientific or non-scientific claim. By learning how to use a critical thinking lens, your child will have the advantage when it comes to deciding what is "fact" and what is "fiction."

The Top 10 Tips for Teaching Real Science
What are the most effective techniques for teaching real science? This is an important question to ask because science is important for every area of life from health issues to journalism.

Just imagine how much time you’ll save by knowing the best teaching techniques! You’ll avoid tons of research time and you won’t have to worry that you are missing important information.

So here are Dr. Keller’s top ten tips for teaching real science to your students and for accelerating their learning.

Teach Kids Chemistry and Physics in First Grade! 
Most elementary and middle school science books give kids a sampling of random topics. Kids learn a little about the solar system, how a plant grows, and the human body but they never learn the basic building blocks of science: chemistry and physics. Without some knowledge of chemistry and physics, kids simply cannot understand real science and will struggle with upper level science classes. Dr. Keller will show you just how easy it is to teach chemistry and physics to your first grader and how this helps build the foundation they need for advanced science classes. 

The Internet: Resource or Distraction or Both?
Using the internet has become an integral part of learning for many home school families. Today, students can take online classes, read online books, and watch online videos all as part of their educational experience. However, do these activities really help students learn or do they simply distract students making it difficult to focus? Dr. Keller will show you the latest findings on how the internet affects learning and how to help your family get the most from the internet and ways to help your kids learn without being distracted.

Junior High Science –Transition to Self-Learning
Colleges love homeschoolers because they have learned to teach themselves!  Science is a great subject to catapult into self-learning because it utilizes experiments and exploration to help acquire and reinforce learning.   Come and learn some fun and effective ways to help your kids learn to love science and teach themselves in all kinds of ways –from designing their own experiments to logically thinking through theories to exploring the world around them!

Creationism, Darwinism, Intelligent Design – Oh My! Opposing Viewpoints in Science and Why They Are Important
Science education is becoming more and more polarized as both Christian and secular families try to “protect” their kids from opposing viewpoints. Dr. Keller will explain how this approach to science education has tragic consequences for kids from all faiths. Dr. Keller will show you how to help your kids examine opposing viewpoints and gain a richer understanding of science without compromising your family values and beliefs.

Teens –FuN! Science
See science in action with Dr. Keller. Dr. Keller will show you some real science that sizzles, bubbles, and boils and will demonstrate some fun chemistry reactions and interesting physics experiments that is sure to get our teens to see how fun science can be! Join Dr. Keller as she shows our teens how fun real chemistry and physics can be!

How To Teach Kids the ABCs of Science While “Playing” Like Einstein
Learning content is important. Kids need to know about atoms and the difference between force, energy, and work. But learning content covers only one aspect of doing real science. Dr. Keller will discuss the difference between explicit and tacit learning and will show you how to help your kids have fun learning the ABCs of science while learning to think and “play” like Einstein.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Rebecca Keller 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.
