Product Description:

Describes a philosophy of education based on the Charlotte Mason approach - an approach concerned as much with instilling good character and high morals in children than with learning basic skills. After acquiring basic abilities in the three R's, children learn through "living books" (as opposed to dry texts) and life experiences. Macaulay draws heavily on the philosophies of Charlotte Mason, but from a Christian viewoint. Besides imparting Mason's philosophy and sharing her personal experiences as a homeschooled child, Susan shares the joy, freedom, and beauty possible in life and learning.

Again Cathy Duffy and I chose to go with RRR because even though CBD has some things cheaper they charge excessively for shipping especially to those of us at APO's.

As a child I was first introduced to the teachings of Charlotte Mason's from my grandmother who had been home educated with Charlotte's philosophy of education Upon entering the 21st century my husband and I decided we wanted to educate our child using Charlotte's method but needed guidance in the process Through a friend I discovered Susan Schaeffer Macaulay's book "For the Children's Sake" In her book Susan uses a conversational tone to tell you her own story of how she came to be introduced to Charlotte Mason and her teachings The author then takes you on a journey of Charlotte's education philosophy beginning with What is education? Children Are Born Persons Authority and Freedom A New Perspective Education: A Science of Relationships and finishing with The Way of the Will Reason and Unity of the Whole I would highly recommend Karen Andreola's book "A Pocketful of Pinecones" as a followup before beginning Charlotte Mason's "Original Homeschool Series"
