Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from jam-packed with a great amount of helpful advice I am happy to report this book is better written than the first of Levison's How-To books (there are two, this is her second one), plus there is much less Christian rhetoric in this second book. And it does provide wonderful condensed information about the Charlotte Mason's method of teaching. Levison offers lots of great advice on how to implement Mason's system, while providing wonderful quotes from Mason's written work from Charlotte Mason's Original Homeschooling Series . From reading both of Levison's how-to books, I feel I have a solid understanding of this method and can begin to successfully start teaching with this style. I'm also very inspired to read Charlotte Mason's original work, which I have just ordered on-line. There is one major downside to Levison's books though. I am quite shocked that these mainstream (somewhat) published books (which both Chapters and Amazon sell on-line) can be full of such unprofessional opinions which fill many of the pages inside. Let me preview one of my favourites, an excerpt from the Coping Strategies chapter from More Charlotte Education, pg 110: "Pack our bullet proof vest and proceed. Spend as much time as they allow. Mingle with the students and observe the teachers interacting with a classroom. I've done this several times and the outcome is always an overwhelming sense of confidence in my ability to educate my children. I often return from these visits saying, "If I can't do a better job with both hands tied behind my back and drunk then there's something wrong with me." Is this an appropriate thing to write?! I think not! I know she was probably just trying to be funny, but still! However, given all these opinions from the author, of which I mostly disagree with, I do enjoy Levison's writing style and I do like her. If you can positively skip over those extremely unprofessional, highly opinionated parts, then I recommend this book simply for the amazing amount of great advice on how to follow the Charlotte Mason method, and homeschooling in general. I'm excited to begin Mason's original work, and I feel that I now have a solid background to digest her writings (which are supposed to be quite intense).
