Charlotte Mason 101

This FREE event is hosted by TVCMC (see separate CMIC entry) from 10 am - 3 pm, for parents who are:
~ considering homeschooling & looking for a starting point
~ interested in learning more about CM's Educational Philosophy & Practices
~ new to using CM at home & want inspiration and tips from moms who have done this "in-real-life"
Please join us for an exciting Saturday to learn all about Charlotte Mason's timeless educational philosophy, as well as demonstrate her method through multiple ***immersion lessons*** (see below). We're also arranging a Q&A panel with moms who have been implementing CM for years, so bring those narration and math questions!
We'll learn about who Miss Mason is, why we listen to her advice about home education, and yes, even parenting.
We'll also hear about where she thinks God fits into education, and what THREE instruments a teacher can use with her students. As CM says, "All education is self-education," so we'll share multiple resources with you to further your own self-education, including books, podcasts, websites, etc. Bring your note-taking materials!!
