Freedomship Education: Rebuilding Your Education Paradigm  8:30-10:00am
Escaping the "conveyor belt" approach of institutional education by which most of us were shaped isn't easy, but it has to be done. For many parents, our greatest handicap as teachers is our own education, but it need not be so. In this inspiring and empowering session, you will not only come to understand the nature and purpose of today's educational system as it was originally conceived and designed, but you will see a shining alternative path, one that develops true thinkers, leaders, and communicators—so desperately needed in today's world.

Nurturing Competent Communicators 10:15-11:45pm
Nurturing Competent Communicators (NCC) - The Two Most Critical
Components Many parents and teachers assume that good readers will naturally or automatically become good writers. Others think that writing talent is just a natural ability—some have it, others don't. Both are myths. History and observation show very clearly how good writers have developed, and what are the two most critical things parents and teachers can do to nurture a high level of aptitude—from a young age through high school. With humor and insight Andrew Pudewa will share the two easy but unbelievably powerful things that must be done at home and in the classroom to create confident communicators.

Lunch 11:45-12:45pm

Teaching Boys & Other Children Who Would Rather Make Forts All Day 12:45-2:15pm
Children like to do what they can do; they want to do what they think they can do, and they hate to do what they think they cannot do. If you want excited and enthusiastic children who learn well, you must understand these key laws of motivation, and focus on the essential requirement of relevancy. If it matters, children will learn it, and if it doesn’t, they won’t. This session will enlighten you with specific ways to find and create relevancy for children, even when they have no apparent interest.

Mastery Learning, Ability Development, and Individualized Education 2:30-4:15pm
What is "mastery learning" and how does it relate to home education? Andrew will explain the methods, goals, and benefits of the ability development model as developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, and applications to disciplines other than music, along with potential obstacles to successful implementation. Come and hear how, as Dr. Suzuki puts it, "Every child can learn,” and you can create success in areas where you or your children have struggled in the past.
