The F.E.A.S.T. of the Charlotte Mason Method

(Homeschool How-To’s)

“We spread an abundant and delicate feast in the programmes and each small guest assimilates what he can.” (Charlotte Mason, Vol. 6, p. 183) Charlotte Mason states that a child’s mind must be fed a consistent diet of living ideas in order to grow intellectually in the same way a child’s body needs nourishing food for proper development. She proposed that the role of the educator is to consistently prepare this abundant and rich feast. In this 101 workshop, you will be given an overview of Charlotte Mason’s foundational principles, leaving you inspired to create an educational feast for your family. Come whet your appetite and see how this Victorian educational pioneer can transform your homeschool!

The Gentle Art of Homeschooling- the essential tools of a Charlotte Mason Education

(Homeschool How-To’s)

Do you desire to provide a nurturing and individualized education for your children? The educational philosopher Charlotte Mason proposed a radical (for her day) concept- children are born persons. Therefore, they deserve to be allowed to grow at their own pace instead of being pushed along like a product on a conveyor belt of force-fed information.Charlotte Mason said we have three tools available for our use as educators: Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, and a life. Join Julie Ross, creator of A Gentle Feast and homeschool veteran of 20+ years, to learn how to use these tools to create a nourishing homeschool. Home education should be a life-enriching experience, extending beyond academic instruction to encompass all aspects of a person. You don’t have to duplicate school at home. There is an art to creating a family-centered and meaning-filled education. Julie will show you how this philosophy can transform your homeschool while practically applying these tools for your unique family.
