Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Fableweavers: How Storytellers Shape History
See, hear, and feel the urgent need for storytellers as we explore untold stories of American history. Those who shape a culture’s stories shape the attitudes, beliefs, and behavior of its people. We’ll look at the stories behind the stories as we discuss trends in publishing, the motion picture industry, and the arts. Home educators are living in a time of great potential for individual artists to influence American culture with truth.

The Write Questions
Writing is about asking questions and following the answers to interesting places. I talk about the Write questions I ask myself when I am creating a story. Includes short readings from my books.

Storytelling from the Silver Screen
22 clips from blockbuster movies are used to illustrate the basic techniques of master storytellers.

Growing a Book
How is a book produced? From concept to print, I show how a book is created. Original materials from comic book and novel production are displayed. I discuss rejection and perseverance woven into the session.

College Boot Camp
Why do three out of four Christian students lose their faith the first year of college? Find out as we explore ways in which students are indoctrinated into humanism on a college campus. Based on interviews with college students at both secular and Christian universities, College Boot Camp goes beyond intellectual arguments to examine the environment that pressures kids to conform to anti-Christian beliefs. It isn’t good enough to simply survive college. This session will equip you to thrive as a Christian student.

Young Writers' Workshop
I explain the five elements of every good story and lead the class in creating a collective story.

Rejections and Perseverance
Rejection and perseverance are part of any writer's life. I share my experience and talk about the importance of never giving up - no matter what dream you are pursuing.

Worldviews in Literature
If analyzing literature makes your head swim, check out this poolside floatie. We’ll learn to take apart great books using a concept any high school student can grasp: the four layers of meaning. Students and teachers alike will benefit from this simple but profound approach to interpreting literature. Once the four layers are explained, you will wonder why your high school teacher didn’t explain books this way. And you’ll be able to separate a book’s message from its method.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Daniel "Dan" Schwabauer 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.
