Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Getting Started In Homeschooling
Nancy will share some foundational things you need to know as you embark upon this journey of home education from basic supplies you might want to have on hand to what's required by Idaho law. We'll also cover ideas for lesson planning, creating a schedule that works for your family, the benefits of joining a local homeschool group, and how to balance extracurricular activities.

Ideas for Hands-on Learning
“From the very beginning of his education, the child should experience the joy of discovery.” (Alexander Pope)  There is a stark contrast between a home where completing curriculum is the goal versus a home where learning is a hands-on, multi-sensory, interactive adventure.  In this session, Nancy will share easy-to-implement, inexpensive, rewarding ideas for incorporating hands-on learning for children of all ages.  You can make learning a joy for your child without a huge investment of time, energy, or resources.

You Are Enough! Encouragement for the Homeschool Mom
Feeling weary?  Worried that you’re failing your children?  Need a boost of confidence to keep plugging along?  Join Nancy Manos as she reminds us that God has placed our children in our families and that He has equipped us to raise them.  She’ll share encouragement from God’s Word that will refresh you and revitalize you in your mission as a homeschooling mom.

Support Group Leadership (Support group leaders)
As the Support Group Liaison for AFHE (Arizona Families for Home Education) since 2004, Nancy has spent a lot of time visiting with and encouraging homeschool support group leaders from across Arizona. In addition, Nancy spent 10 years running her own email-based support group with the purpose of helping homeschooling families connect and share information with one another.  If you are involved in leadership in a support group, this session is for you. Nancy will ask questions to help you renew and revitalize your vision and focus for your group. She will also share advice from seasoned support group leaders for dealing with a variety of issues and challenges unique to running a homeschool support group.

Nancy's Achievements

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Nancy Manos 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.
