Great little book! Chapters are short and sweet. Each chapter covers a subject and gives a quick synopsis of how CM taught it; also includes some booklists. Great for anyone looking for an introduction to CM method or encouragement that you are on the right path.

I happened upon this book at the local library and it was so helpful. I am slightly intimidated by Charlotte’s method because it isn’t a set curriculum and the liberty is a little overwhelming at times. As a teacher trained in the traditional textbook/lecture teaching method a piece of me has difficulty reconciling the simplicity of Charlotte, while the rhetor in me agrees wholeheartedly with her findings. This book has provided the very practical application I needed to boost my confidence in actually applying the method in our home school. I am purchasing my own copy for reference.
