Free webinar - Math, Science, and Real Books

I just saw this on the LivingMathForum Yahoo Group, and some of you might be interested in it. I'm not sure if I'll make it there, but it sounds interesting.

I will copy the info about it below

Math, Science, and Real Books Webinar -- then click on Bringing Joy to Your Homeschool Math and Science Lessons

Session date: Wednesday, April 1, 2009

Starting time: 7:30 pm, Central Daylight Time (Chicago, GMT-05:00)

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Presenters: Maureen Wittmann

Description: Literature isn't just for reading! You can teach math, science, language arts, and more using living books. This is the third in a series of three talks on the topic of teaching through real books.

Have you ever said out loud, "I hate math!" Or, "Math was my worst subject!" Was science always a tough subject for you? Do you struggle wondering how you can bring the fullness of the subject to your children? If so, you've come to the right place.

In this talk Maureen will show you how to let go of your math and science phobia and keep from passing it onto your children. Math can be fun and interesting. Really. You just need to look at it in a new light. Science can go beyond the kitchen experiments and come alive in a child's imagination. Really.

Maureen will bring lots of books with her for show and tell. You'll leave this online seminar loaded with book titles, fresh ideas, and practical tips. You won't want to miss it!

Maureen is the author of For the Love of Literature: Teaching Core Subjects Through Literature published by Ecce Homo Press, available from your favorite bookseller or She is also coeditor and contributing author to The Catholic Homeschool Companion (Sophia Institute Press) and A Catholic Homeschool Treasury (Ignatius Press). Her articles have appeared in Our Sunday Visitor, Homeschooling Today, Heart and Mind, Catholic Digest, and more.

Mrs. Wittmann and her husband Rob are parents to seven children, who have always been homeschooled. She brings to our conference not only her experience, but an excitement and love of homeschooling.

If you're not familiar with webinars -- they're very fun. If you have high speed Internet and speakers then you're good to go. For the math and science webinar, you'll see and hear the speaker just as if she was speaking at a live conference. The difference is that it is interactive. There is a chat room where you can type questions and comments.

If you have dial up or can't make it to the live event, then you could download the recorded event later to watch at your convenience,

Thanks for posting this Maria! The live event is full with a long line on the waiting list. The good news is that the recorded event will be available April 2nd.

I'm working on the Power Point right now and will be adding your blog to a list of online resources.
