Conventions Help with Teaching Plans


Huber, Kim, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


It's that time of year. State home-school organizations across the country are gearing up for the home-school convention season. If you are considering home-schooling as an option for your children or you need to recharge your home-school battery, you can attend any of four state home-school conventions within three hours of the District during the next few months.

The Maryland Association of Christian Home Educators (MACHE) will hold its annual curriculum fair at the Frederick Fairgrounds in Frederick on April 20 and 21. The fair will feature a "help booth" where participants can receive answers to their home-school questions. New this year: MACHE members may attend free; nonmembers must pay a nominal fee.

The Christian Homeschool Association of Pennsylvania will hold its 15th annual home-school convention May 11 and 12 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg.

Home-school conventions typically have two major components - an exhibit hall and workshops. The exhibit hall is where parents can examine and purchase curricula, check out supplemental resources and ask about video and satellite school programs.

Workshops make up the second major portion of the convention. Convention planners work hard to see that there is something for everyone. Parents considering home-schooling will find presentations on complying with state home-school regulations and how to begin a home-education program. Families that have been home-schooling for a few years may opt for workshops that can help them teach specific subjects or give them new how-to instructions or teaching tips. For the veteran home-schooler whose child may be entering the teen years, presentations on home-schooling through high school, teaching

upper-level mathematics and preparing for college are helpful. …
