Workshops & Lecture Topics

If I Knew Then, What I Know Now
A retro look at what worked and what didn’t after nearly 2 decades on the unschooling path. (Sue’s grown unschoolers are 25, 23, and 20)

Curriculum is a Crutch
School conditions us not to trust ourselves and rely on experts. This thinking permeates the homeschooling community presenting itself as curriculum. But who needs crutches when their legs are not broken?

Learning All the Time: Unschooing 101
What unschooling is, what it isn’t, and how the focus is learning.

Homeschooling/Unschooling Teens
Don’t be afraid of the teen years! So many reasons exist to unschool your kids through adolescence. Find out what Sue’s kids did and she’ll share what 75 other homeschoolers’/ unschoolers’ lives looked like as Homeschooled Teens.

When Your Unschooler Chooses School
Sue shares how her family dealt with the school system when her always unschooled daughter chose to attend 10th and 11th grades.

Balancing Parental Guidance and Self-Direction
Let’s sort through any of the confusion parents might have about how to interpret and implement unschooling principles in their real lives.

Unschoolers and Texas Law
Texas is very homeschool friendly. Find out how unschoolers can meet all the legal requirements in the Lone Star State.

The Three A’s: Adventure, Attitude, & Adjustment
Sue’s perspective on these 3 A’s have been her key to dealing with multiple moves, raising children, and now living as an empty-nester. Let her share her tips to make your transitions smoother.

What’s Wrong With Schools Anyway?
We’ve all heard this and most of us are products of the public school system. Why would we be interested in stepping away from something so entrenched in our American Way? (No, we’re not school-bashing, but we need to take a good honest look at what’s wrong there and what we don’t want to duplicate at home!)
