Understanding The Needs Of Homeschoolers in the Library
Have you wondered how you can better attract and serve the homeschool community? What resources are best? Do you have the right tools for their needs? The answers might not be what you think. Join Linda Hincks, homeschool veteran and teacher, for a one hour webinar followed by a 90-minute virtual workshop to learn and explore homeschooling choices, educational differentiation and what opportunities there are for libraries to contribute to homeschoolers successes. Learning Goals: Explore how planning and executing learning happens for homeschoolers to better serve and deliver resources to the homeschooling community; Identify educational biases; Understand philosophies of homeschooling along the spectrum of choice.
Because of the interactive, workshop nature of the program it will NOT be recorded. Please only register if you are able to attend on the actual day and time of the event. Attendees will be expected to participate in breakout sessions.
Speaker bio: Through 20 years of homeschooling, Linda Hincks and her children have explored not just reading, writing and arithmetic, but also community building, service, and diversity. They have homeschooled at the top of a mountain, sang songs to non-releasable raptors and watched the moon blot out the sun. Linda has taught groups of 2-250 in diverse subjects including raptor physiology, poetry, oceanography and homeschooling. Through the years, she has helped many families in their educational journey. In the last year, Linda has spoken at over 50 libraries.
