A Curriculum Guide to What Children Need to Know at Each Level Through Sixth Grade. New book with slightly bent corners from falling during earthquake. Introduction by Susan Schaeffer Macauley. This book uses Charlotte Mason’s approach to learning as it culminates in the Child Light approach, which views curriculum as all the experiences a child encounters in the learning process — not a series of textbooks to finish. This Child Light curriculum guide is broad-based in scope, and applies a written, literary, and verbal approach to teaching. It makes provision for each child’s uniqueness and special needs. It incorporates critical thinking and problem solving skills. It aims at helping children arrive at a Christian worldview. If you are a Christian educator who does not plan to use a packaged curriculum, I highly recommend this book as a planning reference
The author had never intended to homeschool her children, but she finally pulled her children out of school to teach them at home. She shares here how you can decide which educational choice is right for your family, the basic things one needs to know to get started, and what end results to expect.
Teaching Children: A Curriculum Guide to What Children Need to Know at Each Level Through Sixth Grade: 1988 Edition
What does my child need to learn and when does he need to learn it? Teaching Children, a unique curriculum guide for grad levels K through six, provides answers. An excellent educational approach which naturally integrates a Christian worldview and Scriptural principles, Teaching Children draws on noted English educator Charlotte Mason and the Child-Light approach to learning. Child-Light puts children in touch with fine literature and teaches them through the use of “living books.” It applies a literary, written, and verbal approach to learning, presenting a logical sequence of skills, concepts, and content. The result–an important resource for those who want to get away from preplanned curriculums. Teaching Children is for both classroom and home teachers, for public and Christian schools, for everyone who desires to enrich a child’s learning experience! An introduction written by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay, author of For the Children’s Sake, explains how and why the Child-Light educational approach came about, and how this third Child-Light book fits into the Child-Light program.
The authors have taken the best of classical education and created a fresh framework for a “Christian liberal arts and sciences approach to the classroom”. They offer up a new perspective on modern languages, classroom management, dialectic, the trivium and mathematics, advocating for a reasonable synthesis of classical learning models with the equally important values of Christianity. 224 pages, softcover.
Home schooling may be one of the most important and rapidly growing social movements of the day, but that doesn’t get the laundry done for home teaching moms! Here, at last, is help millions of home schoolers have been waiting for.
Shows parents and teachers how children’s learning experiences can be extended to every aspect of life, giving them a new richness, stability, and joy for living.
Every parent and teacher wants to give his or her children the best education possible. We hope that the education we provide is a joyful adventure, a celebration of life, and preparation for living. But sadly, most education today falls short of this goal.
For the Children’s Sake is a book about what education can be, based on a Christian understanding of what it means to be human-to be a child, a parent, a teacher-and on the Christian meaning of life. The central ideas have been proven over many years and in almost every kind of educational situation, including ideas that Susan and Ranald Macaulay have implemented in their own family and school experience.
For the Children’s Sake will benefit parents and teachers in any educational setting-homeschooling, public school, or private school. This new edition features an updated cover design.
