What is the place of inspiration in the teaching of citizenship?
Because the use of technology is so prevalent in 21st century families, CMI invited Lowell Monke, Ph D, Professor of Education at Wittenberg University to speak at the 2014 CMI Conference.
He has written much about technology and its role in the life of children.
Lowell explores these interesting ideas related to technology and in so doing, helps us better navigate the digital world in which we live.
There seems to be talk on almost every educational street corner about “testing,”—talk that is confusing and, to many parents, increasingly a concern.
At the 2014 CMI conference, Art Middlekauff spoke to us about the call of parents—the duty and responsibility of raising their children.
What is the role of the mother, the father, or the school?From the Introduction by Carroll Smith…"This is the second volume in the series, Essays on the Life and Work of Charlotte Mason published by the Charlotte Mason Institute (CMI).We are pleased to provide four new essays as well as a fifth essay by Mason herself.A magnanimous character—how often do we hear this term today? In her 2014 plenary, Nancy Kelly explores what Mason says about teaching morals.What does it mean and how would a person of magnanimous character live? She continues the discussion in her essay, “Citizenship in the Curriculum: Mason, Magnanimity, and the Moral Life.” Nancy takes us through Mason’s use of literary books in the curriculum as a means to teach citizenship.Not all instructors require a formal outline for a research paper.Indeed, not all writers would benefit from making one.Many college departments maintain libraries of previous student work, including large research papers, which current students can examine.Our collection of research paper examples includes outline examples, thesis statement examples, introduction examples, examples of effective transitions between the sections of a research paper, and hundreds of sample research papers in many fields of study.Art deals with these questions by taking us through Mason’s works, supplying us with many references providing clear and consistent support that parents are called to educate their children.Going through a series of lessons or textbooks to say the content has been covered—even using the best books and pedagogical methods—will not meet the fullness of this call. Inspiration, encouragement, sacrifice, moral development, dispositions, wisdom—Art explores these ideas and more through his discussion of what the call to parents really means.
