Susan Wise Bauer
We are very pleased to announce that Susan Wise Bauer is the Keynote Speaker for the 2014 Conference. Dr. Bauer has been an influential advocate for neo-classical education, and both her Story of the World book series and The Well-Trained Mind have a place in the libraries of many homeschooling families. In addition to the Keynote Address (which will be delivered both Friday and Saturday) you will have the opportunity to attend several other sessions she will offer, on topics including classical education for kids who are not so interested in academics, learning literary analysis, and preparing for college.
We are so excited to have Brave Writer’s Julie Bogart at the Conference this year. She draws on her years of experience as a professional writer and homeschool parent to help parents facilitate kids’ emerging voices as writers. You will have multiple opportunities to hear her speak and to participate in her sessions, which range from creating your fantasy homeschool to getting prepared for high school writing.
Save the Date: March 21-22
