The Charlotte Mason Show | A Homeschool Podcast

Aug 15, 2022

If the thought of embracing a Charlotte Mason style of education in your homeschool feels overwhelming to you, this episode is for you!  One of the tenants of Charlotte Mason’s philosophy is that the student should bear the weight of his own education.  It is not the teacher’s duty to handcraft a child’s education or to spoon feed ideas.  This is good news!  Join Julie and Shay as they dive into this concept and explore what it looks like practically to take a back seat and let your child take ownership of his own education.

Guest biography

Shay is a homeschooling mom of 5 who loves enjoying the learning journey with her children and encouraging others in their paths of faith, parenting and homeschooling.  She believes the best conversations happen when you are comfortable on the front porch and loves to share her own journey from there! 

Host biography

Julie H. Ross believes that every child needs a feast of living ideas to grow intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. As a former school teacher, curriculum coordinator, and assistant director of a homeschool academy, Julie has worked with hundreds of students and parents over the past 20 years. She has also been homeschooling her own five children for over a decade. Julie developed the Charlotte Mason curriculum, A Gentle Feast, to provide parents with the tools and resources needed to provide a rich and abundant educational feast full of books, beauty, and Biblical truth. Julie lives in South Carolina. When she’s not busy homeschooling, reading children’s books, hiking, or writing curriculum, you can find her taking a nap.
