Welcome!

Welcome to Cosmic Education! With this site, I hope to introduce and compare various teaching methods used in the homeschooling community. Since there are other sites that deal with more traditional materials, I plan to focus on holistic and living methods of homeschooling, including Waldorf, Enki, Charlotte Mason, and Montessori. In some ways, these methods aren't very similar. And, while it is true that they often contradict each other, in other ways, they often complement one other.

I chose the name Cosmic Education because it is a term used in Montessori education symbolizing the whole child in relation to the world and the universe. Montessori also called the lessons learned in Cosmic Education her Great Lessons. From this perspective, every topic of education can fall under one of the Great Lessons - The Beginning, Timeline of Life, Coming of Humans, History of Numbers, or History of Language.

So you could say, by learning via Cosmic Education, you are learning about life, the universe, and everything! Thanks to Douglas Adams for that terminology. I guess I could just say 42. Or, as my Marine Biology students say, the answer to everything is ... basalt!

Maria Montessori once said, "Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world." Homeschoolers do that task naturally, but they often become perplexed over the question - which curriculum is right, and which one is wrong? How can I help my child find his potential, his giftedness? Hopefully this site will help guide you along the path!
