  1. I still have them. Message me your email and I'll send them to you!
  2. Thank you all for your input! I'm going to go ahead and get a history text to go along with the program just to make sure we're covering our bases.
  3. Thank you for the info. So are you saying that just by doing all of the included content that you would count it as a history credit? I have no problem giving it a music history credit, but that counts as fine arts and not history and I'm aiming for a history credit. I may just get a history textbook and have her read the pertinent parts. We'll see.
  4. My daughter is an aspiring music major and is excited about doing Discovering Music this upcoming 10th grade year. On the website it says it's a full history credit, but looking through the content has me doubting. I'd love to add some non-fiction history reads to flesh it out. The course covers classical music, major historical events, and cultural and philosophical movements of the period 1600-1914. Do you have any history must-reads for this time period? I'd love to hear about them!! I've included the chapter titles below for reference, though I will admit they aren't the most descriptive. Thanks for your help!! Module 1 Using Music History to Unlock Western Culture Module 2 Music Entwined with Great Events of Western History Module 3 Technology, Terminology, and Cultural Perspective Module 4 Fanfare and Power: The Court of Louis XIV Module 5 Sweeping Away the Renaissance into the Baroque Module 6 Liturgical Calendar, Street Parties, and the New Church Music Module 7 A Lively Journey Through the Life of Johann Sebastian Bach Module 8 Enlightenment, Classicism, and the Astonishing Mozart Module 9 Into the Abyss: The Century Struggles with Unfettered Imagination Module 10 Beethoven as Hero and Revolutionary Module 11 Salons, Poetry, and the Power of Song Module 12 A Tale of Four Virtuosi and the Birth of the Tone Poem Module 13 Nationalism and the Explosion of Romantic Opera Module 14 The Absolutely New World of Wagner Module 15 Imperial Russia - A Cultural Odyssey Module 16 Load Up the Wagons: The Story of American Music Module 17 Turning the Page on Western Tradition with the Explosion of War
  5. For 8th grade history and science next year we are going to do a year of studying great inventions and inventors, and I want to hear about all your great resource ideas! I'm looking for books, projects, websites, videos, games, anything fun! What topics am I missing that you think are essential? Here are some of the topics we are thinking of studying so far based off of this book of inventions: Communications: Printing Press/Gutenberg Telegraph/Morse Telephone Radio Television/Farnsworth (This is my husband's Great-Great-Uncle) Transistors/Computers Internet Transportation Steam Engine/Watts Trains Automobile Airplanes/Wright Brothers Jet engine Rocket Engine Spacecraft Military Historical weapons Gunpowder Tank Submarine RADAR/Sonar Modern Conveniences Lightbulb/Edison Refrigeration Sewing Machine Medical Vaccines Microscope/Salk X-ray Microsurgery Entertainment Phonograph Moving Pictures Roller coasters Thanks for any help you can give!!

  7. Do you think the book is appropriate for a 9th grader who is still pretty innocent?
  8. This looks so much better than all the ones I've been finding that are all about the dark, gritty sides of India. It would be nice to have a positive look! Thank you!!
  9. I'd seen this one but thought it might be more about his search than India. Does it do a good job showcasing life in India? Thanks!
  10. I'm looking for a 9th grade level non-fiction book set in India to go along with our World Geography and Cultures class. I'd like it to be something that showcases modern society and life, and is enjoyable by a teen. I've spent far too many hours on this one. Any ideas? Thanks!!
  11. I'm not adding anything other than just the Usborne one. There's going to be enough going on between all her classes that I didn't want to add even more. If I was going to give a world religions credit I would definitely add more.

  13. My daughter won't read all these books either, but she likes to be able to choose her own. For output I'm using the Oak Meadow World Geography syllabus. They've got research topics, questions, and activity lists for all the different regions (though it's oddly lacking the Middle East?). I'll probably borrow ideas from the Build Your Library 7 schedule as well, I just haven't gotten it yet to know what I'm borrowing from it. I may not use it at all since there's a fair amount in the OM one already. I'm glad my list could be useful. I pieced it together from other geography lists. Good luck with your planning!
  14. I'm planning World Geography for 9th next year. These are the books I have planned already. It's very incomplete. I was hoping all you wonderful people could point out amazing things I have missed or ones I have listed that may be too hard. What are your must-haves for geography literature and non-fiction?
