Home Education consists of six lectures by Charlotte Mason about the raising and educating of young children (up to the age of nine), for parents and teachers. She encourages us to spend a lot of time outdoors, immersed in nature and handling natural objects and collecting experiences on which to base the rest of their education. She discusses the use of training in good habits such as attention, thinking, imagining, remembering, performing tasks with perfect execution, obedience, and truthfulness, to replace undesirable tendencies in children (and the adults that they grow into). She details how lessons in various school subjects can be done using her approach. She concludes with remarks about the Will, the Conscience, and the Divine Life in the Child.
Charlotte Mason was a late 19th Century educator who believed that children were persons worthy of respect, that it was better to give children "living books" and important ideas than dry facts. Emphasizing wonder and curiosity alongside reflection upon art, music, poetry, and nature, her gentle style of education has been adapted by today's homeschoolers as a method for developing a love of learning in children.
