Whether you’re new to Charlotte Mason, want to implement more of her methods, or just need a refreshing boost for your school year, the All-Day Charlotte Mason Seminar on DVD will give you the confidence and encouragement you need.
Enjoy a mini-retreat in the comfort of your home. Watch the seminar at your own pace, then keep it on hand so you can refer to its helpful explanations again and again.
The All-Day Charlotte Mason Seminar works well as a stand-alone seminar or as a great companion to our Books & Things Seminar on DVD.
Here is a short sample on using the method of narration to teach history.
DVD 1: Introducing Charlotte Mason
We start off the sessions learning a little about Charlotte Mason herself, her mottoes for parents and children, and how she fits into world history. Hear the story of how her methods changed home schoolrooms. Learn how this flexible, proven, and effective approach can be put to use in home schools today. (34 minutes)
DVD 2: CM Methods
Session 2 launches into the main focus of the seminar: how to teach each school subject using Charlotte Mason methods. Lots of moms have told us that one of the highlights of the seminar is learning several of the main methods by actually doing them. It’s great practice, and you’ll learn first-hand what you are asking your children to do. This session covers History, Geography, Art, Handicrafts and Life Skills, Poetry, Bible, Scripture Memory, Spelling, and Math. (78 minutes)
DVD 3: CM Methods (continued)
The seminar is filled with more practical, hands-on experience and plenty of Q & A as we continue to look at each school subject the Charlotte Mason way. Session 3 covers Copywork, Composition, Foreign Language, Science, Nature Study, Music, Literature, and English Grammar. (71 minutes)
DVD 4: Laying Down the Rails
For the last session, we add in the Laying Down the Rails workshop on habits. This quick, practical overview of our best-selling printed book really helps moms get a jump-start on how to cultivate good habits in their homes. Good habits are the key to smooth and easy days. (45 minutes)
This attractive 64-page seminar book outlines the subjects for all four sessions. It is packed full of helpful tips and information: great living-book sources, a list of composers for music study, a proven Scripture memory system, the artists we have enjoyed getting to know over the years, and more.
