whitestavern Posted June 14, 2012 Share Posted June 14, 2012 I am a secular homeschooler. I originally registered for the NE Homeschooling Conference thinking I would spend most of my time in the exhibition hall looking at curriculum. Well, I'm surprised by how many speakers I would like to see and wanted to get some feedback. I have a large list of lectures I'd like to go to and need to cut some from my schedule. Are any of these speakers overly religious in relation to the lecture topic? Which ones do you think are most valuable? Which ones do you think are just so-so? Which ones, if any, are just hawking their wares? If it helps, I have a 9 yo and a 12 yo. The discipline focused ones relate to the 9 yo, who has Tourettes and very likely ADHD and can be a handful at times. Any input on these would be most appreciated!! Andrew Pudewa-Teaching Boys and Other Children Who Would Rather Be Making Forts All Day (I do not use nor plan to use IEW--does this matter?)

Obviously no one person can see all of these...it would be nice if they gave you access to the transcripts for all of them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
