Writing the Charlotte Mason Way

Writing the Charlotte Mason Way

Teaching your child to write well is an important task, but it can also be the most stressful. Many mothers tell me it’s difficult, confusing, and frustrating. One mother told me, “…it’s the worst part of my day.”

There is a better way. Charlotte Mason said: “If we could believe it, composition (writing) is as natural as jumping and running to children who have been allowed the due use of books.” Wow, really? Yes, really. The reason the writing programs have not worked for you is not because of you. It is because they are systems rather than an organic process of going from oral expression to written expression. In other words, you need a method, a set of principles to apply to the individual needs of your child. I will show you how to use a simple 1-2-3-step process. The workshop will cover these topics:

  • The three-step process to good writing, the Charlotte Mason way
  • How to use written narrations as a springboard to other forms of writing
  • Why students hate most writing programs
  • How to use literature as a model for good writing
  • How to teach grammar and spelling using written narrations
  • Seven kinds of writing and how to use them in all subjects
