Announcing a Webinar on Exams with Celeste Cruz!

I can’t tell you how excited we are!  We know this wasn’t part of our original line-up, but we have a special surprise addition to our spring webinar lineup.  You’ll want to be there – we have yet to find someone so knowlegable and well-spoken on the topic of exams in a Charlotte Mason homeschool.  We are thrilled to have Celeste Cruz come talk with us!

We both started reading Celeste’s blog, Joyous Lessons, years ago.  On her site, she shares a wealth of knowledge when it comes to both practicalities and philosophy.  She shares school planning tips and worksheets, nature study and notebooking ideas (and a great link up!), great ideas for teaching foreign language, annual plans for each of her students, and so much more.  Did we mention she has eight children (with number nine on the way!) and that they are all under the age of 11?  Oh, and she hosts a conference every year for the CM mamas on the west coast.  Her calm and kind demeanor will absolutely give you the confidence you need to sort of how to do exams well in your home, even if you’ve never done them before.

We are thrilled to have befriended Celeste through our shared Instagram account, @CharlotteMasonIRL and she is such a lovely person.  We so appreciate that she will able to come join us May 23rd at 8pm EST to chat about Exams in the CM Homeschool.  We invite all of you to come join us as well!

The webinar will be approximately an hour long and is $10.

In this webinar, we will discuss Charlotte Mason-style exams from both a philosophical and a practical perspective. We will talk about general principles governing PNEU exams, how questions and expectations changed through the Forms, how Miss Mason’s schools managed the exam process, and how students (and teachers!) were assessed using the results.

We will then take that understanding and consider it in the context of the homeschool. How might Exam Week look in the home? What subjects should be covered, and how can we prepare questions and set the proper atmosphere for best work?  How can exam performance help us assess our students’ progress and our own methods and materials?  Can exams really be enjoyable and fruitful, helping us to be better teachers and our children to be better students? (Hint: the answer to that last question is yes!)
Afterward, Celeste invites your questions and concerns for a short Q&A session to follow.

    Hello Celeste, I would love to join your webinar on Tuesday May 23 but have a meeting at that time. Can I pay for the webinar and hear a recording after the fact ?

      Hi Joann,

      Yes, registrants who aren’t able to attend live will receive a link to the recording of the talk afterward. The recording doesn’t capture the speaker’s video — just the audio and the visuals from my presentation. But it will be the complete talk. If there are technical issues with the recording for whatever reason and we are not able to provide the replay to you, we can refund you. 🙂

      Thanks for your interest!
