The Teaching Moment: Homeschooling in the Inspirational Zone through Great Conversations
Epiphany. Diamond Dust. Eureka. Aha! Call it what you will, effective and lasting learning takes place in the Inspirational Zone, and homeschoolers are uniquely positioned to multiply such teaching moments, and to make the most of them when they occur. Whether responding to great literature, internalizing math, history or science facts, reteaching behavior, role playing challenging situations, or getting to know the real heart of each child, seizing the Teaching Moment is an art that can be learned and refined. Join Rachel DeMille for this practical and inspiring workshop!
