Starting Charlotte Mason Homeschooling in High School

1/16/2018
More
I recently watched a rehearsal for a folk dancing group. There were only five ladies on the floor, but the dances were quite involved. Each lady held half of a hula hoop in an arch over her head as they all stepped in time to a lulling waltz, forming intricate designs that gently changed into […] Starting Charlotte Mason Homeschooling in High School originally appeared on Simply Charlotte Mason.

Narration and Composition in the High School Years

1/10/2018
More
Of all of the questions we received on homeschooling through high school with the Charlotte Mason Method, the area that raised the most concerns, by far, was composition. I find that fact interesting . . . and a bit ironic. Think about it. Most of us were given the traditional and typical separate classes focused […] Narration and Composition in the High School Years originally appeared on Simply Charlotte Mason.

Last week a friend recommended a book. After she told me about it, I looked it up online and read the summary and the publisher’s description. They looked good.

But I wanted to do one more thing before buying in: read some reviews from […] How Charlotte Mason Homeschooling Prepares a Student for College and Life originally appeared on Simply Charlotte Mason.

My mother makes the best potato salad. Every time we have a family cookout, she politely asks what she can bring, knowing full well what the answer will be. “You bring the potato salad, please, Mom.” But if you ask her for the recipe, she will hesitate. It’s not that she doesn’t want to share […] Courses, Credits, Grades, and Transcripts originally appeared on Simply Charlotte Mason.

As homeschoolers, educating a child through the high school years is going to look different from a typical high school classroom situation.

Once upon a time, a traveler was passing through a town. He was tired and thirsty, so he thought he would stop and rest a bit by the fountain in the town square.
