Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Learning Through Nature
Learning through nature is not a new concept.  It was first spearheaded in the 1800's by a Friedrich Froebel and later incorporated into Charlotte Mason's educational system.  It is now resurging in popularity due to the Waldkindergarten model coming out of Germany. To name just some of the benefits, education through nature stimulates curiosity, supports real-life experiential learning, physical coordination and improves health.  With her own rich heritage of outdoor exploration, Karen will present on how to facilitate this type of learning.   It's a highly rewarding but very inexpensive addition to your learning methods. 

Connected Learning
If you have a resistant learner or are "curriculum-exhausted", teaching multiple levels or love to be creative, then let Karen walk you through how to put together a personalized unit study (connected learning).  The session will start off with gaining an understanding of your unique family paradigms which is foundational to crafting an individualized learning plan. This will be followed by a step-by-step presentation on the process.  It's easier than it sounds and makes learning less stressful and more enjoyable in the long run.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Karen Effa 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.
