Ambleside’s Three-Day Internship consists of seminars exploring the fundamentals of Charlotte Mason’s philosophy and the observation/discussion of its application in the Ambleside classroom. Attending participants receive a life-changing introduction to an Ambleside Education.

 

Ambleside’s Three-Day Internship provides an opportunity for principals, teachers, and parents to gain a practical understanding of the philosophical principles and pedagogy of British educator Charlotte M. Mason. Led by Ambleside staff, participants spend 16 hours in seminar style readings and discussions of Mason’s writings, thereby gaining a fundamental understanding of her method and philosophy of education that they then may apply in teaching at school, home, or Sunday School and parenting.

 

Interns also spend six hours observing Ambleside teachers in their classrooms across a variety of disciplines at varied grade levels. These observations bring to life the seminars and discussions, allowing interns to experience the reality of an applied philosophy of education. Interns and Ambleside staff reconvene to discuss the classroom observations and ponder any other questions.
