Welcome to the Charlotte Mason Series forum, where we discuss the contents of Miss Mason's volumes. As you can see, there is a separate forum for each volume. These are focused forums for those wishing to learn more about the Charlotte Mason method of education by reading her own books and engaging in discussions of a philosophical nature. We welcome anyone who would like to dig deeper with us into the writings of CM and who enjoys lively discussions.

Posts must be relevant to the group's goal of understanding the philosophy of CM.

This is a good place to:
  • Join/start a book club style conversation that steadily moves through a single volume
  • Post thoughts on sections of volumes that you have been reading on your own
  • Ask questions about passages that confuse you
  • Discuss passages that inspire you
  • And so on

Please play nice and conduct yourself with dignity. Also, be sure you post about the correct volume in the correct forum. If you would like to engage in a topical study, or have more general questions about the volumes, please use the General CM Series Discussion forum. If discussion strays far beyond clarifying and applying CM’s texts, that thread or post will be relocated to the correct forum.
