Beautiful Feet Ancient History
Beautiful Feet Ancient History: A Literature Approach is co-authored by homeschooling mother, Rea Berg and her daughter, homeschool graduate Rebecca Manor.
Beautiful Feet Ancient History is based on the teachings of British educator, Charlotte Mason as described in Susan Schaeffer Macaulay's book "For the Children's Sake." This Ancient history course is written for the intermediate grades and senior high grades. The study guide is divided into two parts. The first part is for the intermediate grade level, while the second part is for the senior high grade level.
The scope of history covered is from the rise of civilization to the fall of Rome.
The course outline is a follows: Part 1 The Rise of Civilization; Part 2 Ancient Egypt; Part 3 Ancient Greece; Part 4 Ancient Rome. The study guide also includes the Introduction: When Should I Teach Ancient History? by Rea Berg, How This Guide Is Used: Answers to frequently asked questions, Intermediate and Senior High TeacherÃ¢ÂÂs Notes, Intermediate and Senior High Lesson Plans and Intermediate and Senior High Answer Keys.
"Living books" such as Ã¢ÂÂTales of Ancient EgyptÃ¢ÂÂ by Roger Lancelyn Green, Ã¢ÂÂ The Cat of BubastesÃ¢ÂÂ by G.A. Henty, Ã¢ÂÂ The ChildrenÃ¢ÂÂs HomerÃ¢ÂÂ by Padraic Colum, Ã¢ÂÂAntony and CleopatraÃ¢ÂÂ by William Shakespeare and Ã¢ÂÂAugutus CaesarÃ¢ÂÂs WorldÃ¢ÂÂ by Genevieve Foster are the backbone of the curriculum.
Note booking is incorporated into each lesson, so at the end of the year your student will have a record of what they have studied. Beautiful Feet Books publishes an "Ancient History TimeLine" which I would highly recommend to accompany the student's note booking experience.
Overall our family has been very pleased with Ancient History: A Literature Approach.
In the future we look forward to continuing our study of World and American history with Beautiful Feet Books.

We really enjoyed this study of the ancients. It uses great books. Our only complaint was that Streams is a little dry and not as interesting as the rest of the books recommended.
