    Hi Sonya,
    I am very encouraged by CM’s approach to teaching children. I am curious to know how much was taught to children about African American history. What might her approach have been to teaching on this subject? What materials might she have suggested or would you suggest to cover this subject matter? Please advise. Thanks

      Hi, Natasha -
      I have not seen any of Charlotte’s programmes that outline African American history as a separate entity. I believe her approach would be to use biographies, as she did with so many other prominent people in history. Some of my preferred biographies would include Amos Fortune, Free Man; Up From Slavery; George Washington Carver; I Have a Dream: The Story of Martin Luther King, Jr.; and Freedom Walkers: The Story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. (I also play a lot of Mahalia Jackson songs, because I love her singing!) Hope this helps.

        Hello Susan,
        Thank you so much for your response. I did not know that these materials were available. I am looking to incorporating these works into our education journey.

        Also,
        What steps would you recommend I take to open a Charlotte Mason School?

          Probably the best thing would be to contact other CM schools to hear about their experiences and learn from their situations. You might look at Ambleside Schools International or ChildLight Schools for more information. There are also some independent CM schools around like Plumfield Academy and, I’m sure, many others I don’t know about yet.
