Kathy5 Stars Out Of 5The How To Book For Combining The Educational Philosophies of Charlotte Mason and Classical EducationMarch 8, 2016KathyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Recently 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 homeschool? 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 Classial 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 Amazon.com. 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 again!
