7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. | Nurturing Competent Communicators (Free event)

Many parents and teachers assume that good readers will naturally or automatically become good writers. Others think that writing talent is just a natural ability—some have it, others don’t. Both are myths. History and observation show very clearly how good writers have developed, and what are the two most critical things parents and teachers can do to nurture a high level of aptitude—from a young age through high school. With humor and insight Andrew Pudewa will share the two easy but unbelievably powerful things that must be done at home and in the classroom to create confident communicators.

Freedomship and Entrepreneurial Education

Many of us realize that we value home education not only because it often results in better academics, superior social environments, and enriched family life, but because it builds a better community and country. The result of true liberal education—a freedomship education—will be not only young men and women who know how to think and communicate, but who think evangelically and entrepreneurially. To revive a culture of self-sufficiency and freedom requires more people with the owner/entrepreneur mindset and fewer with the employee mindset. Join Andrew for a discussion of how to cultivate an entrepreneurial, or georgic, aptitude in our children. The future of freedom may depend on it.


2:00 p.m. – 2:50 p.m.  | Workshop with Andrew Pudewa

Teaching Boys & Other Children Who Would Rather Make Forts All Day

Children like to do what they can do, they want to do what they think they can do, and they hate to do what they think they cannot do. If you want excited and enthusiastic children who learn well, you must understand these key laws of motivation, and focus on the essential requirement of relevancy. If it matters, children will learn it, and if it doesn’t, they won’t. This session will enlighten you with specific ways to find and create relevancy for children, even when they have no apparent interest.


3:00 p.m. – 3:50 pm  | Workshop with Andrew Pudewa

Why Homeschool?

Homeschooling works because students are engaged in one-on-one tutoring and focused learning in areas of personal interest.

The Wisconsin Homeschool Association Building  A Hope and A Future Event will highlight career exploration labs and workshops.  We encompass a broad range of activities and programs for both youth ages 12 and older and adults.   A special emphasis will be placed on examples of successful programs and initiatives for relevant homeschooling.
