Free homeschool workshop double-header!

Student standardized testing:
what is required, differences between tests, and what they measure

and    

Choosing Curriculum:
sorting through the options and finding the best fit for your family 
  

Whether you are just exploring the option to homeschool, or whether you are a veteran coming into a new season, these workshops will be filled with practical, hands-on information that will help you make key decisions for your children.    

Did you know that homeschoolers are not required to do achievement tests in Arizona, but some students are mandated to take the AIMS test? This workshop will cover:    

· Arizona law about testing
· Tests that are necessary and helpful for college admissions and scholarships
· The “alphabet soup” of tests and differences between them
· What the tests measure and how to read the results
· Ways to improve testing scores
· Homeschool-friendly places for getting testing  

So many options for curriculum! How does one make an informed selection? Each style of materials is based on an educational philosophy and a learning style. You will learn:  

· What the major styles are and how they are set up
· The type of student that will best succeed with each style
· How learning differences will affect material selection
· How to pick curriculum that will work best for your family
· Where to find great deals on books and resources DATE: Tuesday, February 9, 2010
