  • A Creative Way to Study Ancient Greece: The Waldorf Way
    by Robin McDonald
    Meshing the best of Charlotte Mason-Waldorf-Enki-Montessori-Classical techniques takes time ... and sometimes a good dose of aspirin, if I am too careless. I have to remember that less is more and try not to include too many lessons in Hunter's syllabus. To that end, I decided to take a Waldorf-inspired approach, using monthly main lessons (similar to unit studies), and create one big lesson per week. I use this lesson to enrich the elementary students I teach at our Friday Tapestry of Grace cooperative as well.
  • Charlotte Mason and Dictation
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    One of the core ideas behind the Charlotte Mason method is that children do something with what they have learned. This can be accomplished in a number of ways, but one specific way that allows children to practice their understanding of proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation and practice good handwriting skills is dictation.

  • Classical Christian Homeschooling - Why Study Greek?
    by Harvey Bluedorn
    We think Greek is a foreign language written in a foreign alphabet. Yet we speak and write Greek every day without realizing it. Our alphabet comes from Greek. Our vocabulary is filled with Greek. Much can be said of the broad understanding of language and culture, which can be gained through studying this language. But let's face it, such thoughts do not move most persons to do so.

    by Beverly S. Krueger
    Dr. Maria Montessori developed what is now known as the Montessori method of education in the early twentieth century. Montessori believed that learning was a natural process directed by the individual learner. She stated that certain fundamental laws of nature could describe the process of learning that was the natural outflow of an environment ordered to allow children to follow their inclination to learn.
  • The Three Basic Approaches to Language Study
    by Harvey Bluedorn

  • The Trivium and Charlotte Mason
    by Laurie Bluedorn

  • Who Was Charlotte Mason?
    by Cheryl Lewis

  • Working Towards Using the Socratic Method
    by Robert L. Holder
    The Socratic method is something like woodcarving. Just as a woodcarver removes layers of wood to get at the form of the object he is carving, the Socratic method is used to carve away all suppositions contrary to what is true about a given idea. Itís a way at getting at the positive by focusing on the negative.

  • The Lost Tools of Learning
    by Dorothy Sayers Added: 4/14/2005
    However, it is in the highest degree improbable that the reforms I propose will ever be carried into effect. Neither the parents, nor the training colleges, nor the examination boards, nor the boards of governors, nor the ministries of education, would countenance them for a moment. For they amount to this: that if we are to produce a society of educated people, fitted to preserve their intellectual freedom amid the complex pressures of our modern society, we must turn back the wheel of progress some four or five hundred years, to the point at which education began to lose sight of its true object, towards the end of the Middle Ages.
