The Santa Cruz Homeschool Conference
On August 23rd the Discovery Learning Center (DLC) in Santa Cruz, California will host a homeschool conference, or rather, UNconference,
especially for area residents.
What is an UNconference?
a special format called an Unconference, in which participants set the
schedule for the day and volunteer to run the sessions the morning of
the conference. We think it will be an amazing family event and a great
way to get to know other homeschoolers in the area.” DLC webpage
I will be leading discussions on working while homeschooling and homeschooling without a curriculum and/or child-led learning. I plan to emphasize ways to throw the stress of “teaching” out the window and trust your child’s natural learning capabilities. I will also have an art table set up for kids to get creative. There are many more long time homeschoolers that will be leading discussions, activities, and presentations.
