Arranged by quarters and weeks, each quarter begins with an "Around the World" summary of events to introduce the time period; lessons progress chronologically with each week having 3 lessons, a pretest, review, and exercise or quiz. The 108 lessons will take a year to complete if you follow a traditional 36 week school year.
Activities are broken down by age group and reinforce the material just learned through fun ideas that engage all learning styles; they're based upon the classical grammar/logic/rhetoric stages. Review exercises cover the timeline and map work exercises; quizzes are cumulative reviews that go over material from the very beginning of the course; the semester-long tests are similar (though longer), covering materials from 2 quarters (one major time period). Quarter-end worksheets help students synthesize what they've learned and keep everyone straight! Suggested Schedules for different age groups are included, as well as plenty of reproducibles. Line-listed answers included. 636 pages, activity pages reproducible, softcover, three-hole-punched and perforated pages. Grades 4-8, but adaptable for the family.

ASDmom5 Stars Out Of 5AwesomeOctober 23, 2014ASDmomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As a mom of an ASD child who is being homeschooled for the first time, this has been an excellent choice for us - my son who has had such a difficult time with the school system and who formally hated history now loves it. I have enjoyed sitting with him through the lesson and learning too. I love how the book incorporates all of the biblical history into the lessons.
