Charlotte Mason Philosophy & Application
Do you have questions about who Charlotte Mason is, and why her philosophy is all over the homeschool blogosphere? These are some of the best blogs to read to find out more. Her writings are available in the public domain on Ambleside Online, and the blogs listed below are the best I’ve found for describing in real life implementation, with schedules, and book lists etc.
A Delectable Education Podcast – My new favorite! Well-researched, and organized. Never longer than 30 minutes and great show notes.

Common Room Blog – The occasional in-depth discussion of some aspect of Charlotte Mason’s philosophy.
