Held July 22, 2023 - 9AM-4PM CT
You are invited to attend the IEW Annual Educators’ Conference and join parents and teachers from all over the globe for this inspiring day of workshops. Not only will the day provide encouragement and an opportunity to collaborate with others, but Andrew Pudewa will offer insights and a host of ideas to enhance your teaching. If you teach students with learning differences, he will also address how to provide effective instruction to help students of all abilities succeed.
9:00 AM CT: Cultivating Language Arts – Preschool through High School
Listening and reading well, speaking and writing clearly, thinking and debating effectively are abilities that most parents and teachers hope to cultivate in their students. With that goal in mind, Andrew Pudewa will explore various environments and activities which will accelerate the development of these language skills, beginning with the youngest students and continuing into the high school years.
10:30 AM CT: Mastery Learning, Ability Development, and Individualized Education
What is mastery learning? How does it relate to education? Andrew Pudewa explains the methods, goals, and benefits of the ability development model as developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. He also discusses applications to disciplines other than music. Learn how you can create success in areas where you or your children have struggled in the past.
1:00 PM CT: Spelling and the Brain
Many children have difficulty learning to spell, but the difficulty may not be with the student. Often parents and teachers feel ill-equipped to help students who are not natural spellers. Join Andrew Pudewa to learn how spelling information is most efficiently stored in the brain, to gain greater insight into the nature of spelling and neurological function, and to be better equipped to teach students how to spell.
2:30 PM CT: Hacking High School: Rethinking the Teen Years
Most of us have presuppositions about what high school is based on our own experience. Times are changing, and the opportunities for home educating high schoolers have grown rapidly. Many of these opportunities will save time, help your family avoid higher education debt, and give your teens a head start on their next decade of life.
