Keep Learning

Sonya Shafer speaking at a Charlotte Mason homeschool conferenceOne of the things I love about the Charlotte Mason Method is that I get to keep learning—as an adult!

Just this past year I’ve been challenged by Joseph Haydn’s daily creativity, encouraged by Oliver Wendell Holmes’s contentment at home, and stirred by Jan Vermeer’s attention to quality and detail.

But in addition to partaking of the feast that is spread for students, I also get to keep learning about Charlotte’s brilliant methods and philosophy of teaching. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to study her writings for myself and to glean from other CMers along the way.

“The wise ever find some new thing to learn” (Vol. 2, p. 9).

And that is what the SCM Encouragement Conferences are all about: learning more about the methods that can transform your home school and connecting with other CMers whose friendship can refresh your heart.

This fall we have been invited to present three SCM Encouragement Conferences. Each one features a different mix of topics and sessions, customized by the group who is hosting it. You are welcome to attend one, two, or all three—whichever will encourage you most as you keep learning the Charlotte Mason way!

Host an SCM Encouragement Conference in Your Area

If you would like to have a live SCM Encouragement Conference in your area, consider hosting one. We try to make hosting our two-day conferences as simple as possible. Contact us, and we’ll be happy to discuss details with you!

If a live event is not possible in your area, consider hosting a video conference. Many moms have enjoyed sharing the experience of the Learning and Living: Homeschooling the Charlotte Mason Way 12-DVD set as a group. We even have a free Leader’s Guide that will walk you through how to host an enjoyable video conference step by step.

The main thing is to keep learning, whether it’s through reading Charlotte’s writings, attending an SCM Conference, or hosting a video event. Make sure your students aren’t the only ones learning something new this fall!
