Does Unschooling Really Work?
What is the educational basis for unschooling? What research supports letting children decide what, when, where and from whom they should learn? How did unschooling come to be in the first place? What are the results of unschooling since John Holt coined the word in 1977?

Learning Without a Curriculum
John Holt invented the word "unschooling" as a substitute for the word "homeschooling," since what Holt was describing didn't have to take place at home and didn't look like school. This workshop examines unschooling as an educational practice rooted in history, and explores how it works for all types of families. Examine your current and desired learning plans for your children, and brainstorm unique and often unconventional answers to your family's learning issues.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Pat Farenga 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.
