Parent University is a one day event hosted by the staff at GSDA at the beginning of each year. Parents have an opportunity to hear an opening presentation by our director in which the topic is relevant to all homeschool families. Then, parents will get a chance to break out into individual sessions on specific topics led by GSDA consultants. Some examples of break out sessions are:
- Organizing Your Homeschool Day
- Teaching to the Mind and Heart of Middle Schoolers
- Supporting Positive Behavior
- Elementary Writers (K-5), Hands on Math
- Alternative Forms of Assessment
GSDA hosts frequent parent workshops for our families to learn about relevant topics and enhance their teaching skills. Parent workshops are led by a GSDA credentialed consultant. The workshops provide an opportunity to interact with other amazing homeschooling families and GSDA staff. At these workshops, parents can share ideas, resources, concerns and request help. This is a time to give input to your resource center staff for ways GSDA can continue to grow in our service to you and your children.
