Guides, Webinars, Courses, and Other Support Materials for

Understanding and Implementing the CMEC Program

The CMEC offers much more than a booklist! We want to aid our families in implementing Mason’s full curriculum in their homes.  To do this, we offer a variety of members-only resources, including self-paced courses, printable book and subject guides, webinars, Parents’ Review articles, and more.

Our Getting Started section offers step-by-step guidance for those new to homeschooling, new to the Charlotte Mason method, or just new to the CMEC.

Our General Resources area offers plenty of help for the key components of a Charlotte Mason education, including narration, notebooks, and exams. We also include resources for timetables and logbooks, including a gallery of member examples, and Afternoon Occupations.

We include several self-paced courses for members for on-demand teacher education, including videos and work assignments to help you get the most out of your self-education.

On our subject-specific resource pages, we collect the most helpful Parents’ Review articles, provide suggestions for implementing the subject, feature CMEC student work, and more.

Each year we offer a variety of Subject Guides and Book Guides. Depending on the subject, these include background information, helpful teacher hints, suggestions for "captain ideas," playlists, curated links and maps, and so on.

We aim to provide the kind of guidance that ultimately leads to greater understanding and confidence in parents. By offering our families an overall education in the philosophy and the methods rather than specific lesson plans for each day, we have seen them thrive—their implementation of the Mason program feels joyful and natural. Our Form Guide provides an overview for the year, our Subject and Book Guides offer week-by-week ideas, and our Resource pages collect subject-specific articles and webinars. We pair these print resources with ongoing education in the form of live retreats, online courses, and meetings in community with other parent-teachers. Through this combination, mothers walk away with the "high thinking" that makes "plain living" simple in the day to day.

What members are saying about our resources:

The subject guides and accompanying documents have been instrumental in helping me to teach each subject according to the Charlotte Mason method. Whenever I feel like I'm doing something wrong or missing the application of a principle, I can go back to the guides and inevitably get back on course. That has been such a help! - Jessica in MD

The Form Guides helped me to layout term goals for my students, understand how books worked together, and see the cohesiveness of the program. All the support materials have been a big help as well! - Hollie in VA

The resources offered have helped in teaching me more about the Charlotte Mason method. The subject guides have made it possible to teach subjects that I would struggle with ... I'm very grateful for the support provided and the cheerfulness of the team wanting to support me. I'm able to dig deeper into the CM method but I'm also able to spend more time with my family and less time preparing for school. - Cassie in MO

The term and program guides and the guides for geography, Plutarch, composers, and artists have made my planning so much easier! - Sarah in CA

I was pleased with what I saw in the information packet and though I had already made plans for the school year, the number of available CMEC resources was a huge draw…The subject guides and resources as well as the form guides have been most helpful. They are well organized, easy to follow, and thorough. I appreciate having an overview with pertinent PR articles and links to additional resources on the subject pages. - Jessica in WA
