Presentation Titles & Descriptions

It’s A Family Thing, Part 1
Curriculum selection seems like a daunting task – there’s just so much out there. The choices seem both exciting and overwhelming all at once. In these workshops, experienced (retired) homeschool mom and educational consultant for Rainbow Resource Center, Janice Price, looks at some of the factors that go into determining the right “fit” in curriculum choices. This first session will look at faith and philosophy convictions as well as approaches to homeschooling and the unavoidable money factor.

It’s a Family Thing, Part 2
This second session of a two-part workshop will examine how learning styles and all those other factors that make your children, you, and your family unique, contribute to curriculum choices. You’ll leave the two workshops with an overview of curriculum options and an idea of which ones will work best for your family.

Life in the Fast Brain
You feel like you’re constantly scrambling. Whizzing through curriculum and studies. Reading everything in sight. These students keep you looking for accelerated resources and material that will actually challenge rather than bore them. Kathleen Kustusch and Janice Price will give you a whirlwind tour of the possibilities
and identify the options available for maximizing the homeschooling experience for the gifted student.

Where’s the Road Map?
Deciding to homeschool is just the beginning . . . . of the decisions.  Are you traveling through the overwhelming terrain of curriculum choices without a road map?  Janice Price, homeschool veteran and curriculum specialist for Rainbow Resource Center utilizes a decision matrix to help you sort through a few basic family factors and to point you in the right direction.

Choosing Curriculum the FAMILY Way
When it comes to making curriculum choices, information is available everywhere – recommendations of friends, reviews, internet opinions. The search for the BEST math, grammar, literature, etc. can almost become compulsive not to mention confusing. But it’s really the FIT that’s most important. Janice Price examines the F-A-M-I-L-Y factors – those things that really matter when it comes to making curriculum choices. A thorough understanding of these factors will give you the tools you need to sift through all the information out there and find the curriculum products that will be the best for your family.

Level-headed Language Arts
Composition, grammar, handwriting, literature, reading comprehension, spelling—and don’t forget dictionary skills. Integrate them all or handle them separately?

Unit Study P.R.O.
Unit Studies: the idea that intrigues and inspires, or scares us silly. Develop your PRO (Plan, Research, Organize) skills by working through a planning matrix.

Phonics:  More Than Meets the Ear
Reading: it’s the job that delights us and at the same time unnerves us. Is phonics the best way? We’ll examine popular approaches, including a historical perspective, current research, and provide an overview.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Janice Price 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.
