(Dealing with Lying); Show Cause Why; A Scheme Of Educational Theory; A Catechism of Educational Theory; Whence and Whither; The Great Recognition Required of Parents; and The Eternal Child.
Charlotte Mason was a late 19th Century educator who believed that children were persons worthy of respect, that it was better to give children 'living books' and important ideas than dry facts. Emphasizing wonder and curiosity alongside reflection upon art, music, poetry, and nature, her gentle style of education has been adapted by today's homeschoolers as a method for developing a love of learning in children.
