Building Tomorrow’s Generation with Marcia Washburn

Description

Building Tomorrow’s Generation with Marcia Washburn features resources designed specifically for homeschooling families. Marcia is a veteran homeschool mom who taught her five sons for nineteen years. She delights in offering encouraging, practical strategies for household management, parenting, music education, support group activities, and more.

Marcia has presented workshops across the country, as well as in St. Petersburg, Russia and in the jungles of Ecuador. Her engaging, transparent style, mixed with personal stories, Biblical illustrations, and music, make her an audience favorite.

Marcia is particularly known for her unique, award-winning music appreciation course, Beethoven Who? Family Fun with Music. Written especially for busy homeschoolers with small budgets, this all-in-one volume includes guided listening lessons with links to listen free on the internet, eliminating the need to purchase expensive CDs. Other features include activities to teach pitch, rhythm, form, dynamics, tempo, and musical terms; heritage music every child should know; a glossary and five appendices; and 332 pages. Even parents who don’t know anything about music can teach this course, learning along with their family. Designed for multi-age use, the course may also be adapted to use as a high school elective.

The Management for Moms Series offers Marcia’s time-tested tips for managing your home, your homeschool, your children, your finances, and the holidays, along with words of encouragement. Scheduling Your Priorities, her workshop offered at this summit, is adapted from this series.

Activity Days for Homeschool Groups and Families includes hands-on activities in multiple subject areas.

Homemade Convenience Foods teaches Marcia’s method for getting dinner on the table in 15 minutes or less (no frozen pizza either!).

Other titles include: Talent to Treasure: Building a Profitable Music Teaching Business, Home-Based Eldercare: Stories & Strategies for Caregivers, Teach Your Family to Play the Soprano Recorder, Hands-On Math, and Hands-On Art.
