Home = Education Conference Photo Album _ page 3

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series H=E Photo Album

Dateline: 8/28/99

By Ann Zeise

At some of the sessions I attended at the Home=Education Conference in Sacramento on Saturday, August 21, and Sunday, August 22, 1999, I took photographs of the speakers. I’m not including here photos of the speakers I’ve already posted on the “Ice Ceam Social” page.

Speakers
Peggy O'Mara: Editor Mothering MagazinePeggy O’Mara

Peggy is the editor of Mothering Magazine. She spoke on Home As Haven: Why there’s no place like home for real learning. She encouraged us to focus not on “How do I keep up with the public schools?” but with “How can I help this child express their unique self?”

In Canada they apparently call homeschooling “domestic education.” Peggy suggested a better name: “WILD Education” because our children aren’t caged all day. She suggested some activist reading: The War Against Parents
by Sylvia Ann Hewlett, Cornel West, Eric West

Soul of a Citizen : Living With Conviction in a Cynical Time
by Paul Rogat Loeb

Dawna MarkovaDawna Markova

A marvelous actress, Dawna portrayed at least a half a dozen teenagers given the same assignment (to read The Diary of Anne Frank, write a report and build a model of her attic) and how each, according to their nature and learning style might accomplish the assignment or not.Dawna is the author of:

The Open Mind : Exploring the 6 Patterns of Natural Intelligence

Learning Unlimited : Using Homework to Engage Your Child’s Natural Style of Intelligence

No Enemies Within : A Creative Process for Discovering What’s Right About What’s Wrong

Harold Jacobs, math book authorHarold Jacobs

Harold Jacob’s high school-level math books, as Pam Sorooshian commented, are the only “text” books that unschoolers seem to really like. The author, like his books, are personable and fun. His are the books our high school son uses.

Elementary Algebra
Algebra for the homeschool student who really wants to know and apply algebra.

Geometry
High school geometry text that is thorough, yet done in a “right brain” way.

Mathematics: A Human Endeavor
A book for those who think they don’t like the subject, and a popular book among teen homeschoolers for that reason.
