Presentation Titles & Descriptions

The Secrets of Great Spelling
Great spelling does not have to be a mystery when you know . . . the rest of the story! Unlike public school methods of memorizing words using pictures, workbooks, and games, let me show you the tools to teach HOW English is built and WHY it is built the way it is. Learn not only the foundations of great spelling, writing, & reading, but also how to coordinate grammar, composition, & Latin in a multi-sensory approach with music, art, & literature.

An Historical Timeline of English Spelling
English spelling does not have to be a mystery when you know... the rest of the story! Our language is rich with a vocabulary based on many languages, and armed with this brief history, you can know the secrets of many of our English spellings. Join me as we trace the story of English through the 2000-year history beginning with the early Romans in England, through the Angles and Saxons, the early Christian missionaries, the Norsemen, the Norman Conquest, the Renaissance and Reformation right up to the present, discovering how and why English came to have its spelling patterns.

LATIN: The Secret Weapon of Successful Students
No other language in the world's history affects English as much as Latin as it reveals the secrets of many of our more difficult English spellings and meanings. It is the mother language of our most common spoken languages and provides the key to the vocabulary of the sciences, medicine, law, literature, and history. Let us show you why Latin makes the best choice for the foundations of a scholarly education, and discover how you can learn this important language along with your 5th-12th grade students and teach them their advanced English grammar at the same time.

There’s a Method to the Madness!
Have you ever considered that HOW you teach can be as important as WHAT you teach? Faulty and haphazard public school methods for the past 80+ years have resulted in students who may read okay, cannot spell well, and often hate to write, much less those who have the skills to move on to advanced subjects such as Latin, logic, and research papers. We want more for our children and our willing to invest our time and resources to teach them ourselves at home, but we still fall back on those flawed methods of most schools. Let us show you the difference between a faulty method that leaves children with many holes in their skills and a great method that teaches them to reason through building solid language skills.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Barbara Beers 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.
