Homeschooling Approaches

The Charlotte Mason Method

The Charlotte Mason method has at its core the belief that children deserve to be respected and that they learn best from real-life situations. According to Charlotte Mason, children should be given time to play, create, and be involved in real-life situations from which they can learn. Students of the Charlotte Mason method take nature walks, visit art museums, and learn geography, history, and literature from "living books," books that make these subjects come alive. Students also show what they know, not by taking tests, but via narration and discussion. Popular books on this method include A Charlotte Mason Education and More Charlotte Mason Education, both by Katherine Levison.
