Learning: A Breath-Taking Adventure

Does that ring true for you? Is learning a breath-taking adventure in your home school

or more of a weary, forced march, plodding through endless subjects? One of the most

difficult aspects of homeschooling is breaking away from the model of education that we

grew up with. A desk, a flag, and an apple symbolize the “look” of school, while “lecture,

drill, and test” describe the method of school, the method that left us passive and bored.

It’s time to enter a whole new world of education; to find a captivating – breath-taking-

way to learn. Join Diana for this refreshing, reviving, and reinvigorating

workshop where you will discover the best brain practices in learning, the environment

that encourages learning, and the many non-traditional ways students can practice what

they are learning. Take a new look at practical, proven, and possible ways to make your

homeschool journey a wondrous adventure.

 Author of Beyond Survival, Reaping the Harvest and Diana Waring’s History Revealed world history curriculum, Diana discovered years ago that “the key to education is relationship.” Beginning in the early ’80s, Diana homeschooled her children through high-school—the real life opportunities to learn how kids learn.  Mentored by educators whose focus was honoring Him who created all learners, and with an international background (born in Germany, university degree in French, lifelong student of world history), Diana cares about how people learn as well as what they learn.  Audiences on four continents have enthusiastically received her energetic speaking style.
