Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Creating a Vision
Creating a vision is talked about in scripture more often that many people realize. How we see things, or don't see them, can make major differences in our lives. It is critical for home educators to have a vision for where they are going and for their family. This session will give you the opportunity to understand the importance of having a vision based lifestyle, not just for today but for eternity.

Raising Royalty
Honor, leadership, integrity, respect, and servanthood are characteristics taught to the sons of royal families. We are responsible for raising our children, and those we disciple, as royalty. Come and learn how to grasp the incredible identity we have as sons of the Most High God!

Teaching Reading for Understanding!
Reading is hard to teach! I would rather teach math! There are 26 letters, but 52 different characters and they can dress up in so many different fonts! Teaching reading is probably the most important educational goal for any home educator, yet it is one of the most difficult. In this workshop we will look at some simple yet effective ways to teach reading!

You are Different and so am I!
This fun and interactive workshop helps you see yourself and others in a way that brings understanding! We are all different, yet each of us is made in the image and likeness of God. So we all share attributes and characteristics, but not all in the same way or to the same level. This workshop will help you understand some of the difficulties that these differences bring and how to help better communicate!

Seeing How Multiplication Affects the Understanding of Fractions!
"Five out of four people do not understand fractions!" By using manipulatives, Dan demonstrates the multiplication process, clearly showing how the understanding of multiplication is crucial for comprehending division and fractions. This fun workshop will explain more of the mysteries of mathematics!

Stewardship: A Biblical Concept (Teen & Adult)
God has given us so much. Understanding the concept of stewardship, ownership, trustworthiness, giving, and receiving are crucial to us as Christians. Understand your role as stewards of the Kingdom.

Concrete Algebra for an Abstract World (All ages)
Teaching Algebra is easy when you understand that Algebra is “Math in Base-X.” Come see Dan present Algebra in a fun and visual way through the use of manipulatives. Starting with basic addition, he will work through solving for an unknown and factoring polynomials. Algebra may look totally different to you after this workshop!

Math-U-See Demo: Where Seeing is Understanding!
This workshop will demonstrate from place value to algebra using the Math-U-See System. This is an informative workshop designed to provide you with helpful hints, no matter what math curriculum you are currently using. This is an amazing, fast-paced 9-year overview of math!

Teach for Mastery: The Scaredy Cat Reading System
Teaching a child to read is so important. This program employs a phonics approach for reading and spelling mastery. A simplified teaching style with hands-on instruction enables those of all learning styles to reap the joys of reading and spelling! So come see for yourself why vowels can be brave or scared!

Starting a Homeschool Business

In this workshop, Dan talks about the possibilities challenges, problems, and rewards of having a business in the home. Having started and/or owned five different companies, Dan has a special perspective on the different aspects of running a retail, wholesale, or manufacturing operation. This information-filled session will provide you with information you can use to start your own in-home business.

Teaching Math for Understanding with Math-U-See!
Understanding math is more than just memorizing rules and formulas. There must be computational, conceptual and application understanding for true mastery in mathematics. In this workshop, visual aids will be used to bridge from concrete to abstract in mathematical applications. Learn why the language we use is also a critical aspect of the presentation. Come SEE for yourself why teaching concretely will make a big difference in your student’s understanding of math.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Dan Sinclair 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.
