The Classical Side of Charlotte Mason

This is an excerpt from an article that was posted on Susan Wise Bauer's site, The Well Trained Mind entitled The Classical Side of Miss Mason written by Karen Glass.
Those who seek to incorporate the methods of Charlotte Mason with classical education will not find it difficult to do so, because the roots of her philosophy lie therein. She was seeking a classical education that would serve the needs of the general population, but founded in principles that had weathered well. The practical application of her philosophy is not always easy to discern, but the results are well worth the effort.
I have previously posted about this topic before which perhaps you may find helpful as well, if you haven't read it already.

    I just did a cursory read of the Jesse Wise/Susan Bauer Classical education at home. It was worth the effort - it's a substantial book - but I found it very informative and comforting. She seems to take a lot from the CM play book.

    It's always nice to see your posts Heather.




I enjoy reading your comments and try to reply as much as I can. Thanks for reading here.
