Better Together - Enrich Your Homeschool Experience
Are you ready for a change? There are many reasons to participate in co-ops while homeschooling and this workshop will help you develop a vision, organize a co-op, and get excited about reaping the many benefits of homeschooling co-op style! Not only will your children look forward to co-op days, so will the parents! Sharing the workload makes it less stressful on the parents. Creating a safe and friendly audience for your students to learn, practice, and hone their public speaking skills is a must if we are to raise children who are able to articulate their faith! What better way to help our students mature than to place them in a classroom setting with break-out sessions and opportunities for debate and discussion of controversial issues? And, if your co-op includes students of all ages, allowing the older students to become the teachers adds even more to the co-op experience.
Homeschooled students do not have a brick and mortar guidance counselor. Between not knowing who to ask, in addition to not knowing what to ask, homeschoolers are often at a disadvantage. Come and find out all you need to know about the college admissions process. This workshop will include vital information, a time-line of actions to consider, a Q&A session and more!
