    Book details

Formation of Character is the fifth volume of Charlotte Mason's six part homeschooling series, a series that is considered one of the finest ever written on education. Part I includes case studies of those who cured themselves of bad habits. Part II includes reflections on schooling and vacations. Part III covers various aspects of home schooling, with a special attention given to teaching to girls. Part IV consists of examples of how education affected the character in famous writers. Charlotte Mason was a British educator whose ideas were far ahead of her time. She believed that it was better to feed the minds of children with living literature and vital ideas than dry facts and knowledge filtered and predigested by the teacher. Mason's method of education shows it's strength through its widespread use today by private schools and homeschooling families. It is flexible and includes first-hand exposure to ideas through books in art, music, and poetry, nature observation as the primary means of early science teaching, use of manipulatives and real-life application to understand mathematical concepts and learning to reason, rather than rote memorization, and an emphasis on character and on cultivating and maintaining good personal habits. The complete collection of Charlotte Mason's Original Homeschooling Series includes: Volume 1 - Home Education Volume 2 - Parents and Children Volume 3 - School Education Volume 4 - Ourselves Volume 5 - Formation Of Character Volume 6 - Towards A Philosophy of Education
