  1. I really like the way History Odyssey is set up, but I do not want to use TSOM. We are not secular, and I would prefer a text that isn't secular. Has anyone used HO with something else? If so, how did it line up?
  2. Thanks, Lori! He has read a few of the books on the Canadian list you posted, but most of them I haven't heard of. I will check them out.
  3. Thanks for your response, Lori! I am wondering if what you mentioned here, is what is an issue. The only problem is that DS is an immature 14 YO, so most longer, more complex works might be at his reading level, but emotionally, I am not sure he could handle them. Does that make sense. I do want to push him so that by next year he will hopefully be ready for higher level reading. He has already read quite a few of the books that you have listed that might go with SOTW 3, but not all, so I will look at them. We are Canadian, so I am trying to add in Canadian historical fiction as well as some US historical fiction.
  4. Yes, I have the activity book, but most of the books are below his reading level. I will look at the lists you mentioned. Thank you!
  5. I am having my Logic Stage child go through SOTW 3 & 4 this year. He is a voracious reader, and is asking for 3-4 history related literature books to read EVERY week. Does someone have a list of Logic level books that corresponds with the chapters in SOTW 3 & 4. I have seen different curriculums with lists, but most of them list 1 book every week or so. I need to put together a pretty extensive list to keep up with this boy.
  6. It has been ages since I have been in this community. I have been homeschooling all of my children, and now I am on my last child who is a voracious reader and likes to work independently. He is going into ninth grade, and we are at Early Modern Times in our history rotation. I would really like to cover all the way through to current times this year. Any recommendations?
  7. I did Fahrenheit 451 in high school and I didn't love it, but my boys might. We have not done Johnny Tremain or Treasure Island. I think I may consider them. We have listened to The Bronze Bow as a family on audiobook, my kids loved it.
  8. We have just finished SFR as a family audiobook, so I won't cover that again, but I do think I need to add in Pilgrim's Progress.
  9. I had thought about Red Badge of Courage and Huck Finn. I will add the others to my lists to consider. I am planning on doing all of these as read-alouds so that we can discuss them.
  10. Thank you for your explanations. I will have to put these on my own reading list to peruse.
  11. Keep the ideas coming, ladies! This is helping to solidify some of my ideas.
