Ashley Wiggers, Homeschooling Today
Ashley Wiggers grew up in the early days of the homeschooling movement. She was taught by her late mother, Debbie Strayer, who was an educator, speaker and the author of numerous homeschooling materials. It was through Debbie’s encouragement and love that Ashley learned the value of being homeschooled. Currently, Ashley is the Editor-in-Chief of Homeschooling Today magazine, Public Relations Director for Geography Matters and the author of the Profiles from History series. Ashley makes her home in Somerset, KY, with her husband, Alex, and their faithful Golden Retriever, Mandy.
How Do You Keep a Long Term Perspective?
It can be difficult to keep the big picture of homeschooling in mind amidst the trials of everyday life. Ashley will share about what really matters in the end, from a homeschool graduate’s perspective. She will speak to common concerns on the hearts and minds of parents and bring encouragement for the journey ahead.
Practical Ways to Develop Critical Thinking
Thinking skills are buzzwords in education today – everyone wants to include them in their curriculum plans! In this seminar, Ashley will explain what thinking skills are and how to incorporate strategies into daily life that will bring great results in your child’s ability to think. Include these ideas to add critical thinking to any curriculum!
