I’ve talked about the Teach Them Diligently Convention  several times here on the site and on the Facebook page  and I’m so excited about what they are doing to get quality resources in front of homeschooling parents.
The awesome people behind the Teach Them Diligently Convention (David and Leslie Nunnery) know that not everyone can come to one of the three big conventions that were held this past May (Spartanburg, Nashville, and Omaha) so they have put together several shorter and even less expensive conventions across the country !!
The locations that will be having conventions during the rest of the summer are:
Little Rock, AR – July 19-20
Dallas, TX – July 26-27
Colorado Springs, CO – August 2-3
Tacoma, WA – August 9-10
Tucson, AZ – August 16-17
The Teach Them Diligently Marketplace is a way to experience all of the wonderful encouragement of the larger conventions, but on a smaller scale and at a lower cost.
I also love that if you live in one of the areas where the conventions will be held that you will get to meet and fellowship with lots of local homeschoolers!
There will be two aspects to the TTD Marketplace: the Curriculum Centers and the amazing speakers!
The Teach Them Diligently marketplace provides a space the size of an average bookstore to each of the presenting sponsors. In addition, Teach Them Diligently will provide our own curriculum center presenting various popular publishers to give a diverse and deep selection of resources for the homeschooling family. So, rather than simply providing a sampling of resources for each publisher, the curriculum centers at the Teach Them Diligently marketplace will be much more complete and in-depth.
You will not only find materials but advice. Each of the curriculum centers will have knowledgeable staff to help you with advice and answer questions. Most curriculum centers will even feature workshop and classroom areas within their space.
Every Teach Them Diligently Marketplace will have a featured speaker area that will hold between 500 and 1,000 people in addition to the shopping area. In the featured speaker areas we will have constant sessions going.
Facing the same challenges and opportunities that you face every day, our fabulous speakers share insightful, down-to-earth wisdom gleaned from their education, homeschool experiences and walk with God.
