Blog Posts I’ve Enjoyed

Dear Reader,

So many good posts out there lately! I’ve been enjoying a lot of great posts from the Charlotte Mason Institute recently —

“Living Science through the Lives of Scientists” by Nicole Williams will convince you to read more biographies and ditch the dry science curriculum.

In the age of Common Core, “Measured and Found Wanting” by Evelyn Hoey reminds us that true knowledge cannot be measured with hard numbers.

And “Fact Check: Did Charlotte Mason Reject Original Sin?” by Art Middlekauff seeks to defend CM against some of her critics. (You can read my own thoughts on Charlotte’s controversial second principle here.)

Day Unto Day gives her thoughts on the value of suffering in “Suffering Sharpens the Spirit.” I love this line: “If you aren’t personally suffering, realize that God is calling you to come alongside someone who is.”

Brandy at Afterthoughts has a wonderful post on the purpose of narration here: “Are Narration and Discussion Interchangeable?”

And lastly, one of the bets posts I’ve read on the whole socialization thing is “Homeschooled Weirdoes in the Culture of Conformity” by B.K. Marcus.I love that they distinguish different uses of the word socialization and show that much of what passes for socialization is really just ironing out kids’ differences.

What have you been reading?
