Presentation Titles & Descriptions

How to Teach Latin
Practical advice from a seasoned author and teacher of Latin. We will overview the most popular Latin offerings from Memoria Press.

How to Think (And how to get your kids to do it too)
Just as you need to prepare yourself to do sports by learning how to exercise and prepare yourself to perform music by learning the musical scales, so too you need to prepare your mind to think rationally. The system of formal logic has traditionally been the way this was done. Logis is the original thinking skill. Learn what logic is and how you can teach it in your home school.

What’s Wrong with Modern Education?
What’s wrong with modern education? Many people know that there is something wrong with modern education, but they can’t quite put their finger on exactly what it is and exactly how Christian education is different. What happened in schools at the turn of the 20th Century that changed American schools forever? What happened in the 1950s that resulted in Life magazine devoting four issues to the controversy over schools, something that happened again in the early 70s, the early 90s, and is now happening again? How can we use this experience to do the job of Christian education better?

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Martin Cothran 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.
