Evaluating Student Writing
Spelling, creativity, coherence, diction, grammar, punctuation, content, tone, structure, voiceHow does a writing instructor take into consideration the varied subjective and objective criteria by which a paper might be judged? Is it possible to fairly assess a creative work? This workshop looks at a handful of options, landing on my favorite: scoring rubrics.

It's Good to Know Stuff
Have your students ever asked, Why do I have to know this? This workshop will provide them (and you) with a definitive answer. Brian examines the problems with a purely pragmatic approach to education and offers suggestions to stimulate a love for learning in our children.

It's Good to Know Stuff (A Workshop for Teens)
This workshop is designed to inspire students to pursue a lifetime love of learning. Rooted in traditional principles and plain common sense, Brian helps students confront skewed cultural notions about education and face facts about their own attitudes toward learning. Its good to know stuff, is Brians educational motto and the simple idea has helped many students over the years.

The Most Fascinating Discussion of Grammar in the History of the World (Or Your Money Back)
See the Amazing Abstract Noun! The Terrifying Transitive Verb! Watch the Mystifying Misplaced Modifier and the Death-Defying Dangling Participle! The Secrets of the Split Infinitive Revealed Before Your Eyes! This thrilling workshop will clarify forever all the mysteries of grammar and usage. Attend this seminar and the presenter guarantees that your children will never again make a grammar error in their writing!

The Wonderful World of Words
Would a choice between writing and root canal pose a dilemma for your student? This workshop is guaranteed to make English more fun than trampolines and roller coasters. Okay, not really. Well take a look at several ways to sprinkle some spice into your English curriculum. Its not just about fun and games either--students who discover the pleasure of puns and the allure of alliteration tend to do much better on SATs and standardized tests.

The Writing Process
Writing is hard. A key to helping students cope with competing brain-halves, writers block, and mental exhaustion is attacking writing one step at a time. This workshop walks parents and students through the five steps in the writing process: pre-writing, drafting, revising, proofreading, and publishing.

Coaching Teens Toward Better Writing
Nothing is tougher to teach than writing. Students need more than a red-pen-wielding evaluator--they need a mentor, a partner, a coach. This workshop reveals the WriteAtHome method for successful writing coaching. Not just a WriteAtHome infomercial, this workshop will entertain and equip parents hoping to improve their children's writing skills.

Good Writing Doesn't Come with an Answer Key (Product Workshop)
Writing is difficult and teaching students to write is even tougher. But engaging, effective writing instruction is possible! Brian Wasko has used his eighteen years of teaching experience to create WriteAtHome, a common sense program that uses simple technology to connect students to a dynamic curriculum and enthusiastic, flesh-and-blood writing coaches. Kids learn and enjoy the process. Come find out how a program like WriteAtHome might work for your family.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Brian Wasko 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.
