    This book has not been released yet but I have already read it 3 1 2 times and have two files full of highlights It says everything I have every wanted to say about how Charlotte Mason fits into the classical tradition in such a way as to bring new life to these old ideas.If you have any interest at all in what is popularly called classical education, I beg you to read this book It will take you far beyond the ages and stages model into the heart of what it really means to be classically educated.

    First, as a practitioner of Charlotte Mason s model, I thought the way Glass explained both the whats and the whys of Mason s methods was extremely good She is obviously a master of Mason s ideas, and in that way, this book will be very valuable to the Mason community Second, I am so glad to see someone attempting to push back against the neoclassical ideas of people like Dorothy Sayers and Susan Wise Bauer I find absolutely nothing of Mason in the neoclassical movement that has become so popular with homeschools, private schools, and charter schools alike As a matter of fact, Mason said that this kind of education would lead to children to become priggish So in that respect, go Karen Where I thought the book broke down was in that the author s attempt to root Mason s philosophy within the traditional understanding of classical education It felt a bit forced to me As an academic in the field of education, I cannot see the classical tradition as one cohesive idea from my studies of the evolution of education the way the author seems to portray it in her book I rather agree with classical scholar Dr John Thorley s assessment found here in that regard Of course, Mason was well read in the classics, and she kept up with the latest educational theories But I do not believe she weighed new ideas against classical ones rather, I believe she weighed all ideas against scripture what it means to be a person and an Image bearer Glass does devote an afterward to this idea, but I think this book would have been a home run if she had made that the focus of the book rather than trying to root Mason in the classical tradition.Although Mason drew from truths wherever she found them, her work is distinctive from any other educational philosopher s, as she says herself in a excerpt from L Umile Pianta June, 1922 , which is quoted in this book on page 123 You, dear people, are torch bearers, bearing the light It is not because we are clever, not because we know , but because it has been our good fortune that a philosophy of education has come our way, our vocation has led us We have received a call and are working on principles not worked on before There is no cause for vanity on our part If you picked up a bracelet lying by the way it would be no credit to you It is precisely the case with us These principles are picked up, found, a find which is no one s property they belong to all who have wit enough to take them Still, thank you, Karen Glass, for your courage in stepping into the arena and giving Mason and classical educators alike fodder for stimulating conversation that has the potential to refine our understanding of both these models of education.

    Foundational A must read for classical and Charlotte Mason educators Very well written and brilliant in its approach Motivating, mind boggling, always thought provoking Not a practical approach but a philosophy of education An important reminder of all the reasons it s good to break with current educational tradition.

    An important read to educators who identify with Charlotte Mason today After studying Mason for 6 six I had rejected any identification with the classical tradition because of what I had read and the current state of classic education today In my heart of hearts I could see Mason fit within the tradtion but was unclear Karen Glass cleared the mud for me by explaining what the classic tradition was when it began, what it become, what we have made it and how Mason perhaps offers a closer method by looking at why the Greeks and Romans studied what they did virtue Well written Points clearly made with depth and breadth.

    Having finished this book, I am left with a firmer understanding of classical education, of the Charlotte Mason philosophy and a stronger conviction in my purpose as a home educator This is the kind of book that I will revisit again and again.

    This book caused me to shift my mindset about Classical Education and Charlotte Mason Education The two are closely aligned than I had thought The book also helped me see the importance of understanding WHY we do what we do I look forward to purchasing the study guide for this book and going through it with a group of homeschool moms Definitely put this on your TO READ list if you are a homeschooler

    Karen Glass takes the reader through various principles of classical education, quoting extensively from authors such as Quintilian, and points out ways in which Charlotte Mason applied those classical principles to education in her own era I am particularly struck by Glass argument that classical education is about synthetic thinking about seeing knowledge as a unified whole, about having a personal relationship with what we know, about learning virtue from every subject Karen Glass wants students to learn to think synthetically first, and only focus on analytical thinking once they have established a proper overview of and love of the broad picture This kind of thinking is cultivated through stories, living books, and educational methods that ask for whole narratives what do you know about cattails instead of single facts or snippets of recall It s fascinating, because the sequence practiced by Dorothy Sayers inspired classical ed people is the opposite those folks would have kids memorize lots of pieces in childhood and put the pieces together when they get to middle or high school I will probably be rereading this book before too long.

    I gave it five stars because while her views on learning Latin made my heart sink and feel terrible that I don t have the truly classical reasons for studying Latin in our home, she did give me insight into other CM points that I had not understood before mainly the functions of the will and of reason And for that I am very grateful and will be thinking about for the rest of my life I m still not sure what falls into analytical thinking as it applies to literature, but I do know that reading good literature together in our home remains at the top in my priorities and taking time to have grand conversations about what we read is a must I cannot say we have read these books if we have not had some good and real conversations about them that goes beyond narration.I think that no matter where you are on your educating journey, this book should likely be read It will help clear up misconceptions about the purpose of education, accomplishing character development in our children and us , and what other people are promoting as classical education Those are my initial thoughts after only reading it once and lightly re reading a few select parts I plan to reread most of the book again and likely order another copy to loan out.

    nemu kutipan buku ini dari dinding fb mba Ayu Primadini pagi ini Tiga Elemen Pendidikan KlasikPendidikan klasik memiliki tujuan untuk menghasilkan pribadi pribadi luhur virtue alih alih pribadi yang sekedar menjalankan fungsi teknis dan karakter Ilahiahnya tidak bertumbuh.Untuk memiliki pribadi seperti ini, kerendahan hati humility menjadi kata kuncinya Tanpa kerendahan hati, seseorang akan merasa cukup dan enggan belajar lagi Tanpa kerendahan hati pula, seseorang akan menganggap remeh orang lain dan kehilangan kesempatan untuk belajar lebih banyak.Hanya dengan bingkai kerendahan hati ini pulalah, seseorang akan mampu berpikir secara holistik mempelajari sesuatu untuk dipahami secara utuh bukan untuk sekedar tahu secara parsial Ia akan belajar berfikir sintetik, yakni bagaimana merajut relasi di antara setiap pengetahuan yang didapatkan Bukan saja antar pengetahuan itu, tapi juga antara pengetahuan dengan kondisi diri dan lingkungannya.Tanpa kemampuan untuk merajut setiap keilmuan ini, ilmu yang didapat hanya akan berhenti sebagai pengetahuan dan tidak menjadi aksi Padahal pribadi yang luhur bukanlah pribadi yang sekedar banyak pengetahuannya, tapi yang mampu beraksi benar Right thinking leads to right action.Kalau salah satu dari ketiga elemen ini ada yang hilang, maka tujuan pendidikan untuk menjadi manusia yang luhur atau insan kamil, akan berhenti sampai di cita cita saja Glass, Consider This, page 80

    An excellent book showing how Charlotte Mason created her educational philosophy by studying the great minds of classical education This is not a how to manual and has very little practical advice, but I would still recommend it highly to anyone interested in really understanding CM and how she relates to classical education I really appreciated how Glass brought to light the difference in how modern classical educators understand the Trivium based on Dorothy Sayers and other 20th century authors Compared to the way CM and older authors viewed it This idea of childhood stages having to do with the trivium has always frustrated me and seemed very counterproductive to an enjoyable classical education A wonderful thorough approach to understanding both classical education and where CM fits into it.
