8:30 a.m. Rebuilding Your Educational Paradigm:
"Teaching for Freedomship"
Drawing on the ideas of Gatto and DeMille, Andrew Pudewa will briefly review the history
of education in this country--the who, why, what, and how of the "conveyor belt," and then
introduce the leadership education model of classics and mentors, adding to that his personal
vision of a new education paradigm. Come and reflect on your real goals for home
education-to prepare our children with character, knowledge, and skills sufficient for them to
remain free men and women during increasingly turbulent times.
9:45 a.m. Mastery Learning, Ability Development, and Individualized Education
What is "mastery learning" and how does it relate to home education? Andrew will explainthe methods, goals, and benefits of the ability development model as developed by Dr.
Shinichi Suzuki, and applications to disciplines other than music, along with potential
obstacles to successful implementation. Come and hear how, as Dr. Suzuki puts it, "Every
child can learn," and you can create success in areas where you or your children have
struggled in the past.

11:00 a.m. 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.
12:00 - 1:30 Lunch
1:30 Teaching and Evaluating Writing
Evaluating a student's writing can be very difficult for anyone, but especially for the parent
who may feel less than perfectly confident in their own English or grammar skills. Learn how
to provide specific models and stylistic goals for each composition, giving specific
assignments to your children for both fiction and non-fiction. Solve the "How long does it
have to be?" problem. Never again hear yourself say, "Don't you want to add a little more
detail?" With confidence and precision, you can design and communicate to your children
goal and model-based writing assignments, and have a concrete tool to objectively evaluate
their efforts. 3:30 p.m. Spelling and the Brain
Many children (and some adults) have difficulty learning to spell, but the difficulty may not
be with the student so much as with the method of presentation. Find out in this workshop
how spelling information is most efficiently stored in the brain, and why. With a greater
insight into the nature of spelling and neurological function presented in this workshop, the
parent/teacher will be well-equipped to meet the needs of all their children, not just the
"naturally" good spellers.
