Mystery of History and TruthQuest
Posted 25 May 2011 - 10:26 AM
However, volume 3 is still really focused on World history and the author even feels that additional American history is needed. So I am trying to plan ahead for how to do that. After we finish MOH 2 I'm thinking of switching the focus to American history and still have oldest child (he will be 7th that year) read the lessons from MOH vol 3. That way he will be getting world history and American History too. I was thinking maybe I could use the truthquest American History guides. Other children that year will be 4th and 1st.
My main goal is to get oldest through the history cycle by 8th. And then I will decide about highschool (don't event want to think of what curriculum I am going to use for that yet!)
Anyone who has used both have any advice or can comment on the tone of the TruthQuest guides?

In the end, it may be that I am inventing yet again. I have altered and enriched our MOH for Ancients this year with BF, Sonlight, and WP selections as well as primary sources. It will take a year to a year and a half, but it will be great fun.
Have you looked at the History of US? I am using that this year with 4th and HO.

As for the History of US, it is not a Christian view.

I remembered this http://www.hewitthom...ngle.asp?i=2218
If you decide on the History of US, http://www.hewitthom...ngle.asp?i=2852
You could pick some selections from WP for the little, have the older read aloud from the first book to the 4th grader. The 7th grader could read HOU and follow the syllabus for guidance to study American History.
You would need to match up the time periods with MOH, but other than time, most everything is laid out well enough.
HTH ... I don't think it actually answered your question still though.
