Nicole Williams of A Delectable Education has begun publishing a living science curriculum that adheres to both Mason’s philosophy and her methods, in addition to offering contemporary scientific knowledge that conforms to current Next Generation Science Standards.
Mason’s goal for school science was to instill a sense of wonder and awe in students and to provide them with the common information that allows for scientific literacy. Many parents see the importance of this goal but they either do not have the time to put together a living science curriculum for their children or they do not know where to begin. In addition, the mass of common information has grown in the last 100 years, so books must be selected carefully or science can quickly crowd out other aspects of the feast all students should partake of.
By using Nicole’s curriculum you can feel confident that your children are being nourished by the kind of living science education Mason had in mind, one that creates a sense of wonder and admiration, while also preparing them to be scientifically literate citizens.
