Publisher's Summary

Charlotte Mason looked at the world and saw that it was governed by universal laws, such as the law of gravity. Then she wondered. What if there were similar laws that governed the way people learn? If we knew what those laws were, we’d be able to pursue education along the most promising lines.

She devoted her life to finding the key principles of education and then developing methods to make the most of them. The result is a comprehensive picture of living and learning that breathes life into education at every level - from babyhood to the adult years. It’s not a rote system, but a flexible set of ideas that keep education in focus.

These principles are for everyone concerned with teaching and learning. They are no more difficult to implement than the principle of gravity which allows you to walk, run, and even - when you know what you are doing - to soar.

Mason/Glass/Breckenridge succeed again

Karen Glass has done a wonderful thing in arranging Charlotte Mason's 20 Principles as she has. Identifying the 2 main principles and the way that the others connect to them has brought clarity to the philosophy as a whole. Donna-Jean Breckenridge's reading enhances what is already an excellent work, bringing with her superb skill of reading a personal knowledge of what she is reading.

Start here: excellent overview of CM principles

Loved listening and soaking up the CM principles via many, many illustrations and direct quotes.

Eager to dig into the 6-volume set, but this was a great starting point. It is too deep to call it an introduction, but it serves that purpose well, and more besides.
