Overview

Home Education is the first volume of Charlotte Mason's six part homeschooling series, a series that is considered one of the finest ever written on education. It consists of six lectures about raising and educating children encouraging spending much time outdoors, immersed in nature, handling natural objects and collecting experiences on which to base the rest of their education. She concludes with remarks about the Will, the Conscience, and the Divine Life in the Child.

Charlotte Mason was a British educator whose ideas were far ahead of her time. She believed that it was better to feed the minds of children with living literature and vital ideas than dry facts and knowledge filtered and predigested by the teacher.

Mason's method of education shows it's strength through its widespread use today by private schools and homeschooling families. It is flexible and includes first-hand exposure to ideas through books in art, music, and poetry, nature observation as the primary means of early science teaching, use of manipulatives and real-life application to understand mathematical concepts and learning to reason, rather than rote memorization, and an emphasis on character and on cultivating and maintaining good personal habits.

The complete collection of Charlotte Mason's Original Homeschooling Series includes:

Volume 1 - Home Education
Volume 2 - Parents and Children
Volume 3 - School Education
Volume 4 - Ourselves
Volume 5 - Formation Of Character
Volume 6 - Towards A Philosophy of Education
