Introducing the 2024 Keynote Speaker – Amber Johnston (

Teaching Hard History With Beautiful Books

     Amber writes, “Home educators are more motivated now than ever to have meaningful conversations with their children about our country’s complicated past and the forces that shaped the society we live in today. But most of us never learned about the tough topics in school, and the books traditionally read in homeschool circles rarely provide much assistance. During our time together, we’ll discuss how to approach hard history in our classrooms with honesty and compassion in an age-appropriate way.”

Important – all sessions will be online using Zoom.  Reminders and a Zoom link will be sent via your registration email.

Session times are all in Mountain Standard Time.
