Overview for 2007
1. We are reading
both Volume 3 and Volume 6 of The Original Homeschooling Series by Charlotte
M. Mason this year. You can choose to read one or both. We
will be reading Volume 6 every year, so if you don't get to it this year,
you can always join in next year. There are monthly reading assignments
for each volume starting with Volume 3. In July we will move on to
Volume 6. Record your favorite ideas/quotes and also jot down plans
for implementation in your notebook. You may find the questions in
the back of volume 3 (Appendix 1) helpful as you embark on your discovery.
