If you want to start studying Charlotte Mason’s view of education, which is very much a classical (but not neo-classical) philosophy, here are some places to start. (These are affiliate links.)
For the Children’s Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macauley
Start Here by Brandy Vencel is a reading guide that makes connections between the chapters in For the Children’s Sake and Charlotte’s own words in her volumes 1-6. Brandy has links in her ebook to the right section of Charlotte’s works online so that you find things easily and without added expense.
For a more modern take on some of her principles, you might enjoy
- Teaching from Rest by Sarah Mackenzie
- The Living Page by Laurie Bestvater
- Consider This: Charlotte Mason and the Classical Tradition by Karen Glass
- Mere Motherhood by Cindy Rollins
I’ll come add more books I’ve read on the topic later.
