Some things to think about:
Sharing Table: Please bring some of your favorite resources for teaching your extended family about homeschooling. (Books, articles, websites, etc.) David Guterson's Family Matter's comes to mind. That has always been a great book for reluctant fathers or concerned friends and family. We would also love to see some of the portfolios families have kept to document their homeschooling. Scrapbooks and portfolio's are a great way for Grandma to see what the kids are up to and it works for all homeschooling philosophies. If you have a portfolio you are willing to share please bring it to the meeting so others can see the benefits of this method of record keeping.
meetings and discussion topics:
Homeschoolers' Alliance (MHA) Conference
This is MHA's first conference in many years. The highlight will be a keynote speech by John Taylor Gatto, author of Dumbing Us Down : The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling. For more information please contact MHA.
WHAT: CCCC Book
A favorite of many homeschoolers, this semi-annual book sale is one of the region's largest and offers homeschoolers the opportunity to buy new and used curriculum, literature, software and more at reduced prices. Go with a list and bring lots of cash. The first trip to the CCCC Book Sale can be overwhelming, but you never leave empty handed.
Annual Homeschooling Conference
MACHE sponsors one of the largest homeschooling conferences in the region. For more information please contact MACHE.
