About This Workshop

Charlotte Mason wrote that the traditional methods of teaching reading in her day were “one of the many ways in which children are needlessly and cruelly oppressed,” and were “an abuse of his intelligence.”
What were the methods she so vehemently spoke out against? Unfortunately, many of them are still used to teach reading today. In her volumes, Miss Mason outlined steps in a reading lesson that would arouse the imagination and awaken the “joyous interest which is the real secret of success.” In this super practical workshop, Julie H Ross (who has taught dozens of children how to read), will guide you through Miss Mason’s approach to reading lessons. You will walk away ready to implement this method in your home without spending any money on expensive curriculum or fancy manipulatives.
