American schools are turning out students that cannot write. College professors complain of the lack of proficient writing skills in college students. When Jeannie was a TA at Fairfield University, she found that even many Masters level students were deficient in writing. As is often the case, Charlotte Mason witnessed the way composition was being taught in schools and wrote extensively against this. She also gives us clear guidance for producing excellent writers. In this podcast, Jeannie will share two of the five Charlotte Mason tools for training our children to be skilled writers. In the next podcast, she will share the last three tools that will ensure your children have confidence in communicating in writing that they'll need whether they choose to enter higher education are begin their career immediately after high school.
Jeannie Fulbright, a 24-year veteran homeschooler, is the author of the #1 best-selling, multi award-winning Apologia Young Explorer science series: Exploring Creation with Astronomy, Chemistry and Physics, Botany, Zoology, and Anatomy & Physiology. She is also the author of the action-packed historical time travel book series Rumble Tumbles Through Time, as well as preschool science books and activity kits, the Charlotte Mason Heirloom Planner, and many high-quality Charlotte Mason based products. Jeannie and her husband Jeff became empty nesters in 2019. All four of their children all went to the University of Georgia on scholarship (homeschooling works!). For more than 20 years Jeannie has traveled around the country speaking to homeschoolers at conventions, covering a plethora of topics from Charlotte Mason to marriage and prayer.
