Presentation Titles & Descriptions

History: Unveiling the Remarkable Chapters of Time
For many students and teachers alike, fitting the pieces of history together can be a daunting and sometimes overwhelming task. Does it really matter what was happening in Europe during the American Civil War? How can I teach the affects of the Roman Empire on American culture to my 3rd grader? Can learning about the Irish potato famine in the 1840's really be exciting? Are these lessons relevant and beneficial for today's student? These questions and many more will be answered in this workshop as Jamie explains her method of bringing history to life in a Charlotte Mason style approach. Life is learning, and learning is life—therefore, why separate the two? Building/creating an exciting history unit study should include assignments in writing, literature, science, mathematics, geography, field trips, and even modern media technology. "I want my students to know, and be as familiar with the real people and characters in history as they are with their favorite fictional characters."

History: A Lesson in Gratitude
When the truths of history (the good, the bad, and the ugly) are sifted through the strainer of political correctness, it loses its potency and relevance. In this modern age that some professionals have labeled, "The Age of Entitlement"�, both children and adults often appear clueless and nonchalant when it comes to understanding the sacrifices made on their behalf. It often seems that America has forgotten what it means to be grateful. In this session, Jamie will share her heart as she explains how the"watered down", politically correct, history textbooks have had a part in helping students so easily forget the past and think it irrelevant. "For He established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children; That the generation to come might know them, the children who would be born, that they may arise and declare them to their children, that they may set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments; and may not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that did not set its heart aright, and whose spirit was not faithful to God."� Ps. 78:5-8

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Jamie Peavy 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.
