5 BENEFITS OF PROJECT BASED LEARNING
WITH JENNIFER HENN
1:00 p.m. to 1:50 p.m.
Jennifer Henn believes you need to have fun with homeschool, but is also serious about learning. A heavy load of textbook work isn’t necessary. She keeps math and language arts as the highest importance. Then, combines learning styles and grade levels by reading great books, working through extended projects, hands-on activities, and field trips. That’s how Jennifer brings a balanced approach to homeschool. She can’t wait to show you how!
5 Benefits of Project Based Learning: Learn how to teach multiple levels of learners as they study several subjects at once. Projects build self-managing skills and give every child a chance to shine. Jennifer will walk you through the process and show you several examples.
