A Charlotte Mason mother needs to understand the method she is implementing with her children, but how is she to learn? One encouraging way to find support is to study Ms. Mason's writings together. This episode is an interview with Bridgett Cooley, founder of the Charlotte Mason Soiree Facebook group. The Soiree is facilitating the birth and strengthening of Charlotte Mason reading groups with a training program for group leaders and Liz and Bridgett discuss everything they can think of to help you get involved.
This podcast faces the reality: a Charlotte Mason education is rewarding--but enormous! It is normal to become weary, worried, and woeful at times about the immense and multitudinous tasks of educating our children, not to mention feeding, clothing, and caring for them daily. The ADE mothers have been in the trenches and share strategies and wisdom for running the race without giving up.
This podcast episode explores Charlotte Mason's Home Education series, the six volumes written to thoroughly explain her educational principles and practices. Join Emily Kiser in an interview with Morgan Conner as they describe the value and special characteristics of each volume individually, and where to begin in our own journey through the information-packed pages so essential to our knowledge and success as home educators.
When we embark on the homeschool journey, many of us feel inadequate to teach because of our own lack of education. Once we start, however, our enthusiasm for learning ourselves is usually kindled. But how to find the time, what to study, and which areas are most fruitful for us are the questions this episode will address as the ADE ladies review Mason's own Mothers Education Course and what she felt were the essential areas of study for a mother and teacher.
