I will be speaking at two homeschool conferences this summer. If you plan on attending either of them, let’s get together. I will have copies of both of my science courses, R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey Chemistry 1 and Biology 2 for sale. I will also have R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey Life 1, Earth and Space 1, and Physics 1 for you to look over. I will also have coupons with me for you to use to purchase any of Pandia Press’s materials. (P.S. Physics looks so good!)
I will be at the California Homeschool Network Family Expo in Torrance, California, June 25-28. Here is a link to the Scheduled Sessions, http://www.californiahomeschool.net/sessions/. I will be talking about Handcrafting High School and I will be participating on a writers’ panel at the session called What’s Your Story.
I will be at the Homeschool Association of California Conference in San Jose, California, August 6-9, http://www.hscconference.com/main.html. I will be giving 2 talks there. One will focus on A Handcrafted Education and the other will focus on how science is learned best and why the homeschool environment is superior for learning science. The handcrafted education talk will look at the benefits to your child from eclectic academics, and how you would go about handcrafting their education to give them an eclectic academic education. In the learning science talk, I will be discussing the benefits of learning science in an environment that pairs theory with the hands-on application of the theory. I will also discuss how you can put together a science co-op. HSC has not put out their schedule at this time. I am posting about it now though, because I am leaving for Spain today. This conference has a very fun dance for the moms. I already have a couple of dance partners lined up, but if you like to dance as much as I do, come meet me on the dance floor in August :-).
