Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Getting Started in Homeschooling
Are you just beginning to homeschool? Are you researching the option for your family? Plan to attend this workshop! The following topics will be covered:

• Maine’s homeschooling law
• Record keeping
• Curriculum planning
• Helpful resources
• Portfolios and evaluations
• Support groups
• Special needs
• And much more!

Homeschooling Methods
What approach to homeschooling should you incorporate? There are a number of methods ranging from the traditional "School at Home" method to the revolutionary "unschooling" approach to learning. In this workshop, new or aspiring homeschoolers will learn the the basics of these and other approaches (Classical, Charlotte Mason, Eclectic etc.), and the pros and cons of each of them. Familiarity with methods will help you to decide which educational style would best suit your family's needs at any given time or season.

Homeschool Leaders Informational
Are you working with and encouraging homeschoolers new and old? Come and sharpen your leadership skills and tools in this workshop. We will review and clarify Maine homeschool law, go over options for annual assessments, learn the history of homeschooling in Maine and how it effects us today, review critical issues for Maine homeschoolers, discuss regional and local resources for support, and share ways to stay tuned to current events and news for Maine homeschoolers. This is a great workshop for all homeschool leaders, as well as those desiring a leadership role within the homeschooling community (either individually, locally, regionally or as part of our state organization, Homeschoolers of Maine). Those wanting more information about homeschooling in Maine will find this workshop helpful, too!

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Carolyn Simonds 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.
