Oregon Christian Home Education Conference: Continuing Education for Homeschool Parents!

In many states nurses, doctors, and other professionals are required to take a certain amount of continuing education courses each year. They need to stay up-to-date on the latest research and trends.

Homeschooling parents have a similar need for continuing education. Soon it will be homeschool convention time, and I encourage you to put them on your calendar now! If you don’t have a convention in your state, go to a neighboring state. Conventions can show you the newest curriculum, and you can find the resources that will be perfect for your child. Conventions provide wonderful classes that will instruct you on how to teach, or encourage and inspire you to continue along this sometimes challenging path. You’ll find educational games and activity suggestions that will spark interests in your children. Conventions aren’t 100% perfect, and I know they can be very overwhelming at times. They can also help you plan ahead, learn more, and become motivated again.

Do you live in or near Oregon? I'll be presenting at the 17th Annual Oregon Christian Home Education Conference on June 24th and 25th! Join me at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland for some continuing education of your own.

High School Grades and Credits

This workshop will answer the common homeschool lament, "How can I give grades when I don't give tests?” Learn how you are already evaluating your children, and how you can translate that information into words and numbers colleges understand. You will learn “grouch-free” ways to determine high school grades, and find freedom in grading criteria and grading scales. Come and learn the many ways of determining high school credits and discover how to make mommy-grades and kitchen credits easy for colleges to understand!

Workshop Session 6, 3:15 - 4:15pm

We’ll also have great information available to introduce you to our Parent Training Tools, including our new Parent Training A la Carte!

I love meeting all of our homeschooling friends that we normally interact with through long-distance ways such as email, or Gold Care Club webinar events. Stop by and say hi. I'd love the opportunity to meet you face to face and chat about your wonderful children (or those things that only another homeschool mom would understand!

For more information on the workshops available at the convention, be sure to check out their workshop schedule.

Till we meet in Portland!

Homeschooling is NOT the same as doing schoolwork at home.  There is LOTS of freedom!  My Gold Care Club will give you all the help you need to succeed!
