Presentation Titles & Descriptions

The Essentials of the English Language
Language has a structure that is common to all tongues and tribes. Join Leigh Bortins as she reviews the foundational structures of sentences. Teaching the grammar of language is easier when one knows the basic structures.

The Foundations of a Classical Education
Throughout American history, teenagers led one-room school houses and developed the most literate nation on the face of the earth. The United States now has a literacy rate of about 50%. What did they know that we have forgotten? Join Leigh Bortins as she reviews the classical model and its role in the history of American education as she explores the causes of modern failures in contrast with previous literacy success.

Recovering American Strength in Science Education
Until recently, America was known for its strong contribution to science, but now the majority of scientists are from other countries. Confidently recover the vision required to make science studies with your children both strong and fruitful as we rebuild a passion for science studies throughout the classical curriculum. As Christians who love creation and its Creator, we should be the scientists the world respects.

The Dialectic in Math
Students are often rushed through the facts of math and then expected to apply the facts to algebra without a lot of practice in the process of evaluating math problems and the steps required to solve them. Leigh Bortins will lead a discussion through a few math problems. We will discuss the various ways to tackle a math problem, the laws and operations used to solve the math problems, and the skills needed to make math easier to understand.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Leigh Bortins 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.
