Product Description

After more than twenty years homeschooling my children and other people's children, I am a passionate believer in the combined Charlotte Mason-Classical Education approach to education. I have four grown children and five grandchildren with number six on the way. I started a used homeschool bookstore in 1990 that grew so much that it became the oldest and the largest one in the country. I have discussed every method of homeschooling imaginable with thousands of people nationwide, and I am adamant that this is the best method out there. It will develop a natural "love of learning" that the children will thrive on. I give you a synopsis of both Charlotte Mason and Classical Education and then proceed to show you the similarities and differences and how they can be lovingly combined to give the children a "love of learning" that will never end. I also give you a book list and resources by subject that are not typically found in other lists for your information and use. Anyone who wants to nurture and develop their child's natural "love of learning" will benefit from this book.----Jenny Sockey

    The How To Book for Combining the Educational Philosophies of Charlotte Mason and Classical Education
    December 26, 2014
    Recently at the Charlotte Mason Group I facilitate one of the mothers asked "Is it possible to combine the Charlotte Mason and Classical Education philosophies in your home school? Is there a book written which addresses this particular topic?" My grandmother had been educated with the Charlotte Mason philosophy, while I had been educated with the Classical Education philosophy. Interestingly enough in home educating my own child I find myself using both philosophies together so I knew it is possible to combine the two philosophies. However the mother wanted something more concrete and tangible which she could hold in her hand other than my verbal explanation. After the meeting I began doing a book search on Viola! Jenny Sockey's book "For the Love of Learning" popped up on my screen so I ordered it to read for myself.

    "For the Love of Learning" is basically a "how to book" on combining both the Charlotte Mason and Classical Educational philosophies in your home education setting. The author talks to the reader in an easy, conversational tone explaining the philosophies of both educational methods. At the end of this section the author includes books for "digging deeper" into each educational philosophy. Then she explains "how to" combine them in your home education setting. The second part of the book contains book lists and resources by subject. This section is a gold mine covering the topics of World/American/Canadian history, Science, Math, English, Spelling, Poetry, Art, Music, Character Development, Latin, Logic, Rhetoric, How to Choose Good Books/How and Why to Read a Good Book, Book Lists, Websites With Book Lists, Audio Cassettes, Author's Resources.

    Overall I would have to say this book does an excellent job of explaining "how to" combine the Charlotte Mason and Classical Educational philosophies in the home education setting. This is definitely one book which I will refer to again and agai
