KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Brave Writer, Julie Bogart


Spend your spring break at the Mall of America and take advantage of Homeschool Week deals while connecting with fellow homeschoolers and getting tips on how to make the most of your homeschool experience. Bring the family for the fun!


We’ll have speakers and workshops delving into everything from the secrets to breakthroughs in writing, homeschool 101, homeschooling high school, partnership writing: the missing link in writing, using math games, making writing fun, and homeschooling students with special needs.
