February is known as “Burnout Month” in homeschooling circles. The busyness of the holidays have come and gone. Field trips and outside activities are at a minimum due to cold and snow. Yet there’s still three to four months to go. It’s the month many homeschoolers begin to doubt their resolve and question their educational approach. Some even begin to think about throwing in the towel.
For this reason, Homeschool Connections, a Catholic online curriculum provider, is very happy to announce something extraordinary: Refresh! Midwinter Virtual Conference.
Beginning in mid-January and through the end of February, Catholic homeschoolers will get a chance to renew, rejuvenate, and recharge.
Homeschool Connections’s Refresh! Midwinter Virtual Conference! is a series of free webinars (online seminars) with popular national speakers who will provide both inspiration and practical help for the everyday task of homeschooling.
Speakers and topics include:
Nancy Brown: Finding Levity in Your Homeschool; A Chestertonian Principle
E. B. Conroy: Simplified Writing; What Your High School Student Needs to Succeed
Regina Doman: Which Comes First, the Character or the Plot?
Kris Correira: Science by Inquiry
Andrew Schmiedicke: Is Our Faith a Fairy Tale?
Mary Ellen Barrett: The Well Socialized Homeschooler: Embracing the Weird and Debunking the Myth
Rachel Watkins: Little Flowers Club; Having Fun While Learning the Faith
Laurie Gill: Keep Doing What You’re Doing
Speakers and topics are still being added.
