Interest in Charlotte Mason continues, as is evidenced by the books, dissertations and articles being published (see below).

Charlotte Mason (1842-1923) was a British educator who devoted her life to improving the quality of children’s education.  In 2009-11, the Charlotte Mason Digital Collection was created in order to provide digital access to Mason's manuscripts, letters, and other archival documents housed in Ambleside, UK, where she established her teacher’s college. Interest in Charlotte Mason continues, as is evidenced by the ongoing publishing of books, dissertations and articles (see below).  Schools are being designed in the US and UK which apply Mason’s ideas in the twenty-first century. Teachers who follow the Ontario Curriculum and home educators across North America are weaving Mason’s ideas into their educational practice. The Charlotte Mason Digital Collection attracts a steady flow of visitors every month, with inquiries from all over North America and the UK.  It plays an important role in this emerging area of scholarship and educational practice.  Most of the following publications are available in the library at Redeemer University, or online in our subscription databases. Off-campus access is available to current Redeemer students and faculty via the Redeemer network password.
