Centered on "living books," this creative approach to history integrates elements of both Charlotte Mason and Classical methods.
Short, very informal introductions are written directly to the student and open up each topic with a distinctly Christian perspective. Suggestions for activities or writing exercises are often included as well. The booklists follow, with selected annotations on what pages or sections to read and appropriate grade levels for each entry. Incredibly flexible in nature, families can proceed at the pace that's best for their students as they select "spines," biographies, in-print books, and out-of-print classics from the extensive lists.
Proceeding chronologically, entries include lists for Alexander Hamilton, War of 1812, Industrial Revolution, Black Hawk War, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, the Civil War, John Mosby, George Meade, and other relevant unit-study topics.
Grades 5-12; may be adapted for younger siblings. 150 pages, softcover, spiral-bound. Full resource list is included at the back of the book.

Beth Millard5 Stars Out Of 5August 25, 2010Beth MillardWonderfully rich curriculum!! I only wish there was a little more commentary. It is so well done! A terrific resource for families who want to read through history and who highly value seeing from a sovereign perspective.
farm girl5 Stars Out Of 5June 18, 2010farm girlwow! i love this curriculum. it is so simple but packed with information. it's just what i needed to be able to teach all the kids together. they love the "real books" approach to learning. i also love that it is so affordable. it's one of those "school" books that you will never want to ge rid of. it's so easy to use and very flexible as far as lesson planning goes.
