Susanna Wesley's Educational Method
Account of the pedagogical methods used by Susanna Wesley (1669-1742), mother of John Wesley, in the instruction of her children, stressing the extent to which she identified education with salvation, and salvation with the teaching of divinity. The article notes the importance to her method of catachesis and of routine and regulation of manners and meals; however, she possessed a moderate Anglican, rationalist outlook and insisted that her children were not to work before having acquired the ability to read and write. More importantly, she "did not seek to shut down her children's minds in order to claim their souls."
