Charlotte Mason is one the the most popular homeschool-styles. It was British educator in the late 1800’s. Her observations, experience and philosophy as a teacher has created an entire methodology to homeschooling. In the Charlotte Mason method, there are some basic principals to which the educator should adhere. Some of the basic principals are using “living” books, employing narration in your lessons, working on forming better habits, short lessons for young children and the use of dictation for spelling and grammar. Much use is also made of repetition and practice for mastery in terms of writing and doing copy work. Through the principals espoused by Charlotte Mason, children will absorb lessons better and retain information longer than by simply doing worksheets, etc. The Charlotte Mason methodology actively engages children’s minds and creates relevancy in order to retain the information in the long-term.
