Sonya Shafer of Simply Charlotte Mason discusses three tendencies many people have when switching from unit study to Charlotte Mason:

  1. Tends to connect the dot for the child rather than letting the child figure it out
  2. May feel like learning didn't happen if no hands-on project was completed
  3. Worry the child will get confused with variety of subjects covered and no common theme

She then goes on to offer a few tips for dealing with these tendencies:

  1. Create a timeline "book of centuries" and add events to it as you cover them.
  2. Trust the method, especially narration.
  3. Provide resources for hands-on projects that they can do on their own time as opposed to feeling it needs to be integrated into the lesson.
