Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Breathing Life into Language Arts
Language Arts is a critical part of any student's education and yet working through spelling, vocabulary, grammar, writing, reading comprehension, critical thinking and character development can consume mountains of time and energy. In this workshop, Rosie will discuss how these subjects can be combined and brought to life through the study of great literature, while developing your student's ability to think, reason and communicate.

New to Homeschooling Workshop
If you are new to homeschooling and not sure where to begin or need help navigating your journey, this workshop is for you.  Rosie Watson, 25 year veteran, who has homeschooled her three children into College will be giving practical help to demystify homeschooling.

Topics will include:

     How do I know if I am QUALIFIED?
     Where do I begin?
    Homeschool Methods and Philosophies. How do I know which method is right for me?
    Choosing and using curriculum.
    Understanding your Child's Learning Style.
    Time constraints & scheduling.
    Getting connected & socialization.
    Teaching difficult subjects and multiple levels.
    The law in Texas.

Creative Writing, The Lost Art
This workshop will equip you with practical strategies to inspire and develop the writer in your child. Rosie will explore answers to the questions: How do children learn to write? And more importantly, how do children learn to love to write? Additional topics will include: How to separate the mechanics of writing from the soul, how to motivate the reluctant writer, how to take the stress out of writing and make it fun, as well as effective techniques to develop style.

Help! I've Fallen, and I Can't Get Up!
Balancing the role of teacher, mom, and wife can become one of the home school mom's greatest challenges.  Rosie Watson, home school mom of 20 years, brings practical advice, encouragement, and restoration to help you nurture and develop those most valued relationships.

The Role of the ARTS in Education:
The study of music, art, drama, and dance are often an 'add on' to an already full curriculum. In this workshop, Rosie will explore the true value of these subjects, and the role that imagination and creative expression play in educating the whole child.

Homeschooling Highschool:
Homeschooling the high-school student brings new opportunities and challenges to the homeschool family. Teaching the 'difficult' subjects, providing positive social interaction combined with the pressure of college applications and transcripts can be daunting. Rosie Watson, mother of three homeschooled students, now in University, will bring encouragement, direction and practical advice to those facing the final years.

Lessons needed for the Transcripts of Life:

The greatest lessons our children need to learn are at risk of being lost as the pressures and demands of our culture play havoc on our families. The attitude of entitlement dominates and parents are lured into the role of serving their children rather than teaching them to serve. Raised in a third world country, Rosie brings fresh insight into safeguarding the future of the next generation. Don't miss this thought-provoking, life-changing workshop.

Learning to Write and Writing to Learn:
While many students have been exposed to the technical requirements of the writing process few have embraced or mastered the craft. When we give them the rules without the tools they become frustrated and unmotivated. This workshop will provide practical insight into the writing process and equip you with creative ideas for bringing writing to the forefront of the learning experience.

Speech and Debate: Turning ordinary students into world changers
Want to bring new life to your homeschool journey? Introduce your students to the world of competitive speech and debate and discover an exciting way to develop their critical thinking and communication skills in a fun and challenging environment. This journey through the art of rhetoric helps to develop articulate, interesting individuals who know how to defend what they believe. The added element of competition and performance serves to raise the bar, providing the incentive students need to give their best.
This workshop will feature top-notch presentations from award winning homeschool competitors.

Be prepared to laugh and cry as she provides wisdom and practical advice for navigating across the sometimes difficult roads.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Rosie Watson 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.
