HSLDA’s @home e•vents program showcases speakers who are experts in their fields and often leaders in the homeschool community. They’ve been in your shoes and want to come alongside you in your journey to enhance your family’s homeschooling experience! Our speakers possess the breadth of experience, talent, and enthusiasm suited for encouraging you and equipping you with relevant tools.
Past e•vents have included presentations by well-known authors and speakers, such as Andrew Pudewa, Lou Priolo, Dr. Jay Wile, Jeff Myers, and Hal and Melanie Young, as well as experienced homeschooling parents and homeschool graduates. HSLDA staff speakers have included President J. Michael Smith, Chairman Michael P. Farris, many other attorneys, and some of our Special Needs, High School, and Early Years coordinators, such as Dianne Craft, Vicki Bentley, Becky Cooke, and Diane Kummer.
As a wife, mother, home educator, and curriculum writer, Sherrie Payne is a woman of many talents. She is the author of Around the World in 180 Days, a world history and geography curriculum developed to teach children “the rest of the story.” Sherrie also teaches at her local co-op. She has taught an online course for The Potter’s School, has edited and written columns for her state’s homeschool magazine, and has spoken at homeschool support groups and state-wide homeschool conventions.
Sherrie and Rick (her husband of 40 years) live on 23 acres of wooded property outside Crawfordsville, Indiana, with two cocker spaniels. All six of their children are married, and three are now homeschooling their own children. Sherrie dedicates her free time to her flower gardens and her 13 (and counting!) grandchildren.
(9:45 PM EST):
Teaching History Around the World
Whether you are homeschooling a teen or a pre-schooler—or both at the same time—your students can study and learn together. Sherrie Payne, mother and teacher of six, has learned to make multi-grade homeschooling both fun and efficient.
To simplify the multi-level teaching process and eliminate “boring” from history lessons, Sherrie wrote a world history curriculum entitled, "Around the World in 180 Days." In this engaging webinar, Sherrie draws from "Around the World" to share the excitement of history!
You’ll learn that there’s more to world history than just dates, names, and places. Sherrie will show how you can give your students “the rest of the story,” and help them understand more about the nations that influence world events.
Take a ride in an imaginary hot air balloon, and prepare to have fun with world history!
