AO Page Counts AmblesideOnline.org

AmblesideOnline * Page Counts


These are provided for comparison to the amount of pages that Charlotte Mason had her students of comprable age reading. Where etexts were used, page counts were figured using a standard of 300 words per page (books vary in how many words per page; 300 seemed like a fair average), so that dividing the number of words in a text and dividing by 300 would provide the number of pages.

These are page counts figured by Leslie S. for some old schedule samples from Charlotte Mason's PNEU schools.

Form I   (roughly grades 1-3)
          IB (age 6), 1 year, roughly grade 1
          IA (age 7-9), 2 years, roughly grade 2 and 3
Form II  (roughly grades 4-6)
         IIB (age 9), 1 year, roughly grade 4
         IIA (age 10-12), 2 years, roughly grade 5 and 6
Form III and IV   (roughly grades 7-9)                 
Fom V and VI  (roughly grades 10-12)



Page counts for Form III and IV: (taken from PNEU schedules)  I used ABE to look up those books I didn't have. There are some typos in the original schedule with the author's names and some book titles in the schedule aren't clear either. I found page counts for most books published either just before or just after she wrote these schedules. It is too bad the publisher information was removed from the notes because that information would have been useful. In some cases, where the range of pages to be read is denoted by section numbers or section names (no page counts) and where I didn't have the book, I simply put an estimate. I tried to note the estimates that I gave in the list below. I also omitted counting the Sunday Reading as well. Wendi, when you get time <g> I would like to know the publisher information on your copies and any numbers you have that I don't.

As you can see the total page count is much higher than our total page counts, and also higher than the estimates based on numbers in Vol. 3. The interesting thing is that other than the literature numbers the counts are almost all 50 pages or less. One exception is the biography. I decided to see what would happen if the page counts for literature were severely restricted to about 50 pages per book and only 50 pages in each literature book were to be read in class time and the remain pages assigned as out of class reading. So I played with the numbers.

Total page count 2873
Literature page count 1743

If we divide the literature into portions to be read in class time (50 pages or something) and portions to be read out of class time (all the rest). We get these numbers.

Estimated Out of Class Reading page count 1393
This includes all but 50 pages in each of the poetry books, so this count is probably overstated by 541 pages. The count without the poetry is 852.

In Class Reading page count 350
(Includes 100 pages of poetry which may be high)

If we remove the Estimated Out of Class Reading from the Total Page Count then the total assigned class read in is:

Pages with Free Reading Removed page count 1480

This number is well within our estimated range from the Vol. 3 totals and only a little below the mean. While my numbers are only estimates, the idea with estimates is to see generally how the number fall even with imperfect information.

Form III age 11-15, 3.5 hours, 27 Subjects (my count), 35 books
Total page counts 1400-1750 - Mean 1575

We know that the Literature list included holiday and evening reading but we didn't really know how much of the reading was intended to be holiday and evening reading. It appears that the 1400-1750 total page count calculated from an average 40-50 page per book would bring the daily morning schedule into the 3 hour time frame.

What does this matter? Not much, except that I have been continually frustrated at trying to do all the extra's for a CM education. It takes us a well beyond the time frame she gives and I didn't know why because our lesson times are short. I'm fairly sure I'm not alone in this. My problem is that I've been trying to schedule all our literature readings during class time causing our days to run long. If we restrict our class reading to only about 50 pages in each literature book (there is some leeway, I think for Shakespeare and other works considerably shorter than novels), we may be able to finish in her given time frames. I think it is important to understand this. I also think that if this these conclusions are right then we should communicate it so others won't have unrealistic expectations.

Another point where it might matter is that we modeled the HEO schedules somewhat after these schedules which include weekend and evening readings. So our schedules which have high page counts may actually be better balanced if some of the readings are done out of class like the original schedules were designed. If we attempt to figure out which of our readings are most appropriate for out of class readings then the HEO members may be comfortable scheduling their students with these readings. I assume there is no direct narration for evening and weekend readings, though of course the story would carry over onto the next class reading.
