Why Should I Attend?

This coming year’s convention promises to please all that attend. This
past summer, families traveled from all over Texas and the surrounding
states. We encourage you to make plans to bring your families. We even
have some moms gather friends and make it a fun, getaway weekend.

We are here to help!

Our goal is to encourage, equip, and educate families in all seasons of
their homeschooling journey.

Amazing Speakers

Great Homeschool Conventions structures a fantastic speaker roster
<https://api.secondstreetapp.com/m_c_t/3772539/101238360> . Many
speakers come from years of personal homeschooling experience. They
attend the conventions because they are passionate about helping
up-and-coming or seasoned homeschooling parents achieve a successful
homeschooling experience. They believe in the homeschooling concept and
have committed their lives to keeping the movement strong and on solid
ground well into the future. We choose only the best speakers and you
will be inspired as you listen to their positive messages.

Hundreds of Workshops

Dozens of speakers covering more than 230 speaking sessions

schedule will be posted with descriptions of the sessions closer to
convention time. The variety of topics covered will be incredible, from
how to homeschool different ages at the same time to how to homeschool
a gifted or special needs child. Don’t know how to teach math and get
concepts across to your teen? Covered—and by math experts! How do I
prompt my child to write? Lots of writing tips will be covered. Reading
is so very important. What happens if you have a struggling reader?
What can you do to help them? Proven techniques to work effectively
with a child who struggles with reading will be covered. Science isn’t
easy for some! We have experts who address teaching children science
that will capture their attention and hold their interest.

experts in their fields will address homeschooling trouble spots.
Homeschooling isn’t easy. Parenting can be harder. Behavioral issues in
the home, strong-willed children, and disrespect for parental guidance
can make homeschooling a terrible experience for both parents and
children to the point of giving up. Great encouragement and parenting
tips can be found by attending our Parenting Track.

answers by attending this awesome track which will leave you uplifted
and with a new appreciation for your child’s challenge.
