Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Spelling: Accentuate the Positive; Eliminate the Negative; Don't Mess With Mr. In-Between
Mr. McCabe will examine the delivery systems that don't work vs. those that do, teach parents how to "smuggle" phonics, vocabulary building, basic grammar, and spelling through the back door of handwriting! Parents will receive handouts which will enable them to evaluate any spelling program, construct a sequential spelling program based upon their students' need, and help their children learn without studying word lists and without having to copy, copy, copy, copy.

The Mechanics of English Spelling
Fourth graders and above need more than 3rd grade phonics to decode efficiently! Parents will learn about the origin of the five different types of English spelling: the Simple, the Fancy, the Insane, the Tricky and the Scrunched Up!! Learn what most students NEVER learn unless they are taught these secrets, including many of the gifted. Learn how to help your children learn to spell without having to waste their precious time to write out word lists and copy, copy, copy, and your precious time correcting papers.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Don McCabe 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.
