Homeschooling is a great privilege and blessing as well as a big responsibility. There’s a lot to learn about homeschooling, with every year being a new adventure! This informative 3-hour workshop is meant to help you build a firm foundation for your homeschool. We’ll discuss many important aspects of homeschooling such as current MN homeschool laws, teaching tips, choosing curriculum, scheduling, planning, avoiding burnout, dealing with resistant learners, understanding learning styles, and ideas for developing a love for learning in your children. A great workshop for the beginning homeschooler but also perfect for the homeschooling parent who needs renewed vision and direction or guidance in any of the areas listed here. You’ll receive relevant information to assist you in providing an excellent education for your children. Please Note: There will be no childcare provided.
High School and Beyond
Homeschooling through high school might seem intimidating, but be encouraged! These can be the most enjoyable and influential years you have with your teens. This seminar will help you develop a comprehensive 7-12th grade plan. Starting with a strong academic foundation of high school courses and credits, you will learn how to individualize your students’ education based on their graduation goals. You will also learn how to create a transcript, include earning college credit in high school with PSEO and CLEP, and explore the guiding steps for career exploration. Parents and students alike will gain confidence and be encouraged to homeschool through high school as they see the big picture unfold and create a vision for these extraordinary years.
Teens are encouraged to attend with you at no charge!
Firm Foundations, by Kris Cox
Kris and her husband Bruce homeschooled their four children for 17 years, finishing their homeschool journey when their youngest graduated in 2011. Kris's passion for encouraging and helping homeschool parents led her to become a homeschool consultant in 2012. Along with consulting, Kris writes a homeschool blog www.krismcox.com and speaks on various homeschool topics for homeschool groups. She also leads a Smoothing the Way Course/Support Group for new homeschoolers each school year. Kris served as the phone responder for MACHE from June 2013 to December 2016 and currently co-presents the Homeschool Workshops put on by MACHE in cooperation with various support groups throughout the state. In all these endeavors, Kris strongly encourages seeking God for guidance in every decision and struggle, believing that the key to successful homeschooling is depending on Him. Her heart’s desire is to serve the Lord by supporting and encouraging homeschool parents, giving them the tools they need to be successful in educating their children.
