  1. Thank you for your input! I will most likely use your guides if I end up going with the Dorothy Mills series, I really liked what I saw in the samples 🙂 Is only the first guide (for The Book of the Ancient World) available as a PDF ebook?
  2. Thanks for sharing your experience with HO. This isn't the first time I hear someone recommending the OUP books – I'll see if I can get my hands on one to see what they're like.
  3. That's wonderful that your child just read through half a Mills book in one sitting! The engaging style is one of the things that is making me lean towards using the Dorothy Mills series. Thanks for bringing up Russian resources. For some reason I didn't really think to look what's available in Russian on the subject of world history, although I'm always on the lookout for books on Russian history. We do own some books published by Belyi Gorod and they're lovely. And, sidenote...I will try to look up the Russian resources thread you mentioned awhile back and see if I can add anythin
  4. Thanks for chiming in! By vol. 3 being a little "heavy," do you mean in terms of reading level or the material covered? If we go with HO, we'll get to vol. 3 in 8th grade, so hopefully that will work.
  5. Glad to hear you're enjoying Mills' Middle ages and think it will work for a 6th grader. Thanks for mentioning the A Mind in the Light guides. I read about them while searching for info on the Dorothy Mills history books on this forum. That's definitely something that I might use instead of the MP study guide. I like that they seem to have more variety in the assignments, which will probably appeal more to my creative daughter. And in case anyone else was looking for samples, they are available on the A Mind in the Light website: https://www.amindinthelight.com/history
  6. Thanks again. Since I've ordered both, I'll see what appeals to me more once I get Dorothy Mills book and go from there. The Human Odyssey book will be good for color photos and maps, even if we don't end up using the text.
  7. Thanks, some things to consider for sure. I did look at Oak Meadow history 7 before, but I'm not sure that would be a good fit for us. Which ones did you give away, the Mills books or Human Odyssey? Hmmmm....maybe things will become more clear once I get the first Mills book in my hands and can read through it.
  8. I've been trying to figure out a history plan for my 6th grader and would really appreciate some input. DH is getting tired of my my daily history musings updates, to which I subject him every evening 😀 So far I've put together our history myself using various resources. Now it's time for world history. I feel like I would like to look ahead further than one year and figure out a plan for middle school, so I don't have to figure out history every year, and so that there's a concrete plan of what we're going to cover in the next few years. I would also like something that has some su
  9. Thank you, I downloaded the Evan-Moore art book. I'll have to remember to keep an eye out for this offer again next year.
