3 Reasons To Come To A Homeschool Workshop

transition public school to homeschool

Our annual “how to homeschool” workshop is Aug. 17, and we couldn’t be more excited!

You may be surprised to know this event draws not just those considering (or new to) homeschooling, but also those who have already homeschooled for a few years. They say they always learn something new!

Here are three great reasons why you should come:

Homeschool Workshop Reasons: 1. Big-picture perspective.

Often you can get so overwhelmed with the particulars that you never even begin the journey!

Our workshop will address the nitty-gritty details of homeschooling – e.g. “What are the legal requirements?” “How do I create a lesson plan?” etc. – but it also provides a great long-term view from the perspective of those who have been there, done that.

When life intervenes and your original schedule goes up in flames, it’s important to keep the end in mind. Our workshop will give you practical advice on how to overcome and plan for even the unexpected things in homeschooling.

Homeschool Workshop Reasons: 2. Wisdom from homeschool veterans.

Our three amazing speakers – Micah and Johanna Gelatt, Jacklynn Walters and Natalie Haber – have amassed decades of experience as homeschool teachers. They are also still homeschooling today.

Homeschool Workshop Reasons: 3. Personal Q-and-A time.

Sometimes you can hear a great presentation, but it didn’t answer the specific questions you had, based on your unique life situation and circumstances.

Well, here’s your chance! Every session has a time for Q-and-A afterward (and if you don’t feel comfortable asking in public, you can always approach our speakers after the workshop).

If you can’t do the whole 3-hour slot from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., you can always drop in and out as your schedule allows. Each speaker has roughly a 1-hour session.

Got a question for our speakers? Just email socialmedia@midwesthomeschoolers.org with any questions you have for any speaker, and we’ll forward the questions to them so they can be answered at the workshop.
