EiE Seminars 2014-15
Marty and Carolyn provide the entire homeschool community the opportunity to attend monthly evening seminars
designed to enhance the positive homeschool experience for your family. Each year we try to weave a theme
and this year it is to encourage our attendees to better understand the philosophy of Dr. Raymond Moore, the
Jefferson Education Model, the teachings John Gatto and John Holt as well as the importance of Learning Styles.
For the 2014-15 school year we will be presenting our seminars on Thursday evenings from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
Our fee to attend is a free will donation with a suggested amount of $10.00 per person or $15.00 per family.
There will be a container for the donations to be deposited. We do not track who donates since we would rather
you attend the seminar than forgo it for financial considerations.
Our Seminar Schedule for 2014-15 is:
Thursday September 11, 2014 Overview of Curriculum Styles
Thursday October 16, 2014 Annual High School Seminar
Thursday November 13, 2014 Game Curriculum
