An article from God's World News titled, "The Art of Retelling" just came to my inbox. I was almost startled when they mentioned Charlotte Mason herself!
The age-old communicative tool of retelling has been used at least since the days when Moses was commanded to repeat the works of God to the children of Israel. It continues until today when parents tell their histories to their own children. I was reminded of this methodology--known as narration-several years ago when I read Charlotte Mason's series on education.
You can see the rest online here.
Interestingly enough, the author of the article, Maryellen Marschke, when I did a google search on her name, turns out to be a CM educator, who I believe is on the Board of Ambleside Fredericksburg, one of several Ambleside schools (schools applying the CM method) around the world.
We should pray for these schools to flourish!
