Charlotte Mason advocated a "method" of lessons, which included comments to the teacher about preparing for lessons. What is included in this practice, why is it necessary or helpful, and how do we implement effective planning? Lessons are far more than simply reading and narrating. Keeping students on track throughout a school year takes some vigilant and diligent work on the teacher's part. Enjoy this re-release of a former episode with relevance for every single school week.
Charlotte Mason's curriculum set appropriately short lessons in many varied subjects. Her programs included timetables to help organize the short morning lessons. This episode is a discussion of how the teacher may prepare, predict, and preplan for the upcoming term to accomplish covering the material. We call it forecasting--a flexible plan for success, a term Charlotte Mason probably would have appreciated.
