Let us try, however imperfectly, to make education a science of relationships––in other words, try in one subject or another to let the children work upon living ideas. In this field small efforts are honoured with great rewards, and we perceive that the education we are giving exceeds all that we intended or imagined. - Charlotte Mason, 3.163
It has been a dream of mine for some time now to have a high school group for students based on the methods of Charlotte Mason and it is finally coming to fruition. This fall, 3 experienced Mason educators will launch The Hive. Years ago, I heard Gladys speak of her group, The Gathering, and knew then and there that I could do something along those lines for the high schoolers in our area. Having graduated 2 sons using this method, my focus has become even clearer through my experiences with the Mason method in high school. I am sure we will be refining things as we go along and I hope to share some of our experiences here at Sage Parnassus. You can see the beginnings of our website here.
Right now I am preparing for the CLUSA conference - writing, writing, writing. I am looking forward to seeing everyone and in particular doing the Immersion Group. (It's going to be such fun!) I'll report back here in a few weeks.
From joy to joy,
