This talk is BIG on the beyond. So often learning style materials pour all their time and energy into finding the right label for your child’s learning style. (Yes, we now know he’s a right brained, global, sub-dominant, argyle wearing, rational wombat. But how do I teach him to spell?) And while there are many different tools for assessment, too often these same materials are light on just what you should do after the label. How do you teach history so it sticks? What if she can’t understand fractions? What if he loves language but hates to write? This workshop will be all about “What do we do now?” Come away with lots of ideas you can use Monday morning.
Carol Barnier is a fresh, fun and popular conference speaker unlike any you’ve heard before. Her objective is to have the wit of Erma Bombeck crossed with the depth of C.S. Lewis, but admits that most days, she only achieves a solid Lucy Ricardo with a bit of Bob the Tomato. She is a frequent guest commentator on Focus on the Family’s Weekend Magazine broadcast, where she’s spoken on a variety of humorous topics ranging from not being ready to be a Titus woman (It’s the name: Titus. Anything that rhymes with Phlebitis is automatically suspect.) to why angels need a new public relations manager. She has been a guest on many radio programs, contributor to many magazines, and is a speaker at conferences nationwide.
