How does Charlotte Mason’s relational model apply to Science Instruction? Most of us were trained in the traditional manner of memorization and regurgitation, fragmented information and reproduction. But for Mason, science was not an isolated subject, and each scientific discipline fit within the broad web of not only the various types of sciences but of math and history and art. How do we offer children this integrated and relational feast of science today in the 21st century?
This self-study course aims to give participants not only a robust understanding of Mason’s context and principles for science teaching but equip them to translate those principles into practice for students today. We recognize the unique pressures of the STEM culture on our students and seek to lay out a path that gives students the scientific literacy they are owed as persons and prepares them for life in our current world.

Though local requirements differ, we hope many can also use this course toward Professional Development hours or Continuing Education Credits. However, our primary aim is to equip and encourage you as a Mason educator, whatever your context.
