I am thrilled to announce a series of articles on Physics by Richele Baburina, posted on CharlotteMasonPoetry.org. Richele is the author of Mathematics: An Instrument for Living Teaching, published by Simply Charlotte Mason. She has also deeply studied Charlotte Mason’s physics stream of science and taught what she has learned at a variety of conferences and retreats. Now she is sharing her knowledge of physics using the Charlotte Mason method of education with all of you.I highly encourage each of you to take the time to read Richele’s articles. I have become concerned recently that many homeschooling families are choosing to skip high school physics. I suspect parents are making this choice because they have preconceived fears about its difficulty or the difficulty of the math that may be associated with it. Also, in many cases, only 2-3 sciences credits are required to graduate and get into college. But Charlotte Mason had a bigger picture in mind than simply what was required. She felt it was important for students to continue the broad feast, even in the field of science, all the way through their education. Richele speaks to each of these issues and much more, and I am certain her words will be encouraging to you.
Part 1: Physics the Charlotte Mason Way covers the What, Why, and When.
Part 2: Living Lessons in Physics goes in-depth on the How.
