Just a suggestion, OP--You might put an update in the first post of this thread because some will see it was started a long time ago and not realize the treasure you've hidden later in the thread!! :hurray:

Oh my gosh... I'm so glad this thread was bumped.  Rose, thanks for posting all that!  Subbing so I can come back and take lots of notes... later, when it's not the middle of the night!!  :D

Thank you!!! You just provided virtually all the planning for DS11's 6th grade social studies (and I'm using it as the base for DS13's 8th grade).!

I found it while searching for lists of movies, topics, and books for my dd#1 this year. I admit that I'm at the point where I am trying to *cut out* books because I have so many. But I love lists to choose from - to see what my kid would like, what would stretch her, and help her to understand the history better - in an age-appropriate way. This thread has all of that & more. I said this to myself:

 

How have I passed this thread by? 

 

And since this person said she would need it in a year, I figured I'd bump it for the rest of us too. 

 

I'll be looking for this thread again next summer, when I have a rising-6th grader about to do Modern history.  I'm so excited for all these suggestions!  Could you put up or link to what you finally decide on?

 

Thanks again, Rose!  :001_tt1:

Well, this thread is over 4 years old... ;)

 

 

Also, at the risk of sounding stalker-ish ;), as I recall, Chrysalis Academy did not follow a strict chronological history progression, so she may not have lists to go with SOTW 2 and 3 -- her middle school progression:

 

6th = Modern/20th century

7th = books to go with the Big History Project

8th =  "8th grade book list - History of Science/Science Fiction"

9th = theater/drama + Ancients

 

I think in 7th grade, for literature, they focused on Fantasy : "Favorite children's fantasy books - classic and contemporary".
