One subject that I loved to teach in public schools was reading. In my very first classroom, I looked forward to our literacy block every day. I scoured the Internet for reading activities, spent hours cutting letter cards and laminating centers, and received literacy training through my school district. While I loved investing time and effort into my students, I soon learned there was an easier way to teach reading- a much more meaningful one, too.
Charlotte Mason's approach allows us to keep reading instruction interesting and enjoyable without dragging out the laminator or receiving special training. Over the past few years, I've spent time figuring out her methods for reading instruction, and comparing them to modern research.
