Textbook Myths and How to Deal with Them – Dr. Jay Wile and Diana Waring
When you study science and history, you will learn some things that are wrong. It happens. Get over it. In this talk, Diana Waring and Dr. Jay L. Wile discuss several of the common myths that are often taught in both of these subjects. While it will be valuable for you to learn about these myths, the more important lesson from the talk is what these myths teach us about the process of education. Because myths are common in both science and history, students must understand that what they learn in their textbooks might already be out of date. Wile and Waring will give you practical advice about how to approach these kinds of situations and how to discern myth from fact.
Diana Waring, author of Beyond Survival, Reaping the Harvest and the History Revealed curriculum published by AiG, discovered years ago that “the key to education is relationship.” Beginning in the early 80’s, Diana homeschooled her children through high-school—providing the real life opportunities to learn how kids learn. Mentored by educators whose focus was to honor Him who created all learners, and with an international background (born in Germany, university degree in French, lifelong student of world history), Diana has been enthusiastically received by audiences on four continents.
