Posts Tagged ‘Rea & Greta’s Summer Soiree’

Dear Friends,

Historic Monday Club

I am delighted to announce that Greta and I are returning for our Second Annual Rea & Greta’s Literature Soirée!  We had such a lovely time last year with all of you, forming friendships, and talking about real things, that we are coming back for more!  We hope you can join us too.  Greta and I have worked up some special topics that we hope you will find engaging, inspiring, and meaningful.  We will be talking about the power of vulnerability in our relationships and what that looks like as we deal with hard times homeschooling, learning challenges, and difficult times in our marriages.  We will also cover academics and how to enrich these in such a way that they cultivate empathy and wholeness in ourselves and our children.  We don’t pretend to be experts on these topics but do hope that by sharing our challenges, failures, and misses, we can all grow together into what we really long to be as homeschooling families.

Here are the details:

Teaching Art History

In this session, Rea will be talking about teaching art history in your homeschool. Rea will share how art history came to be of value to her personally and why she believes it is a valuable subject to add to your homeschool studies. Rea will offer practical lesson ideas, ways to incorporate art history into your school days with the youngest kids to your high school students, and, of course, a book list!  We know you’ll find this session to be both practical and inspiring.

Home Schooling in Times of Doubt by Greta Eskridge

In this session, Greta will be sharing from the heart about homeschooling through hard times. It is something we all face, but when we are going through it, we often feel very alone. Greta shares about teaching a child struggling mightily to learn to read, and how the worry of that struggle impacted her marriage. She offers practical advice, encouragement, and hope in the face of hard things. Best of all, she reminds you that no matter what you are facing in this journey of homeschooling, you are never alone.

Coping Skills For Spirited Children

Greta will share her experience raising passionate children. She’ll share the joys and frustrations of educating and parenting kids who deal with intense emotions. And Greta will offer practical solutions thatshe has found to be helpful with her children as well as a book list of resources, followed by a Q & A time. We hope you’ll find it to be both encouraging and timely.

Teaching American History Through Literature by Rea Berg

The pathos, passion, and power, of America’s story, is one that continues to capture the imaginations of students, historians, parents, and teachers alike. From the saga of the Pilgrims plight in their pursuit of religious freedom to the courage of the Founders in their defiance of Britain’s tyranny, there are so many stories that bring delight and inspiration. But for many of us, these stories are not adequate to cultivate the understanding of America’s complex makeup of racial, religious, and cultural diversity. How can we, even as parents of young children, assure that our children have a love and appreciation for all the stories thatmake up the tragedy and the triumphs of America’s story?  This session will explore ways to cultivate a deeper and broader understanding of our history.
