  1. Hi! I'm new here. :) My 8th grade daughter is reading The History of the Medieval World this year. I would love to integrate some appropriate historical fiction and non-fiction literature into her school year, much like the WTM elementary level history booklists. Am I missing a WTM suggestion list anywhere? Thanks. I tried searching this forum, but came up empty. :)
  2. Hello all, My son studied Middle Ages history last year at WTMA and was regularly required to submit a timeline of events. I created the attached template for him to update and submit each week (saved as a PDF when uploading). Given all that I have gleaned from this forum over past 5+ years, I am happy to share this with anyone who may benefit.History Timelines Template.xlsx timeline example.pdf

  4. Online co-op using Year 3 of Tapestry of Grace for the 2020/2021 school year has openings at the Dialectic and Rhetoric levels. Our virtual co-op, Virtual Threads, has been in existence for more than 13 years. For 2020/2021, we will be meeting on Thursday mornings for Dialectic & Rhetoric literature classes and Friday mornings for Dialectic & Rhetoric history classes. On Thursday mornings we also offer Art Appreciation class for member families. Exact class times: Dialectic Literature (Thursdays 9-10 am EST) Dialectic History (Fridays 11 am-12:30 pm EST) Rhetoric Literature (Thursdays 11 am-12:30 pm EST) Rhetoric History (Fridays 9-10:30 am EST) Art Appreciation (Thursdays 10:15-10:45 am EST) It is not a requirement that students participate in all classes - a student may be in just history or just literature, but Art Appreciation is limited to families who are in one or more of the core classes - but we do encourage participation in both history and literature, if possible. We encourage students to turn in written homework to that week’s teacher, but we support individual family’s leadership as the homeschool parent for their student. We prefer that new families have at least one year’s experience with Tapestry of Grace, but we encourage you to apply even if you are new to the curriculum . We share the teaching load among the moms and/or dads. We use a team-teaching approach with multiple parents assigned to each unit. This helps provide continuity from week to week as the unit team splits the actual teaching duties and works together to make decisions about which themes to emphasize, which assignments to reduce/add to, which resources to cut, etc. We are not an online class, but a co-op. Our families get to know each other - online and in real life, where possible. We support, encourage and pray for each other as our kids grow up together walking through the dialectic and rhetoric years with a group of friends. We have been using CourseSites as our free platform, both for sharing of information and for classroom meeting space, but are looking at new options for the upcoming year. If this sounds like something that you could commit to and would benefit your homeschool, please complete this application form. In his grace, Carrie

  6. My daughter is in 8th grade, but I'm looking ahead so that we can plan out her high school for college entry. I have noticed that colleges require World History, US History, Government, and Economics. I'm not sure how to include that on her transcript if she is doing the high school level history through Well Trained Mind.
  7. I'm in the early stages of opening a homeschool hybrid school. We're trying to figure out 5-8 grade history. I would like it to follow classical principles. Do y'all have any suggestions?? Some things I've considered include: 1. Joint classrooms with the elementary grades; everyone uses SOTW but the middle schoolers do *more* with it all. 2. Basically follow SWB's suggestions, using the Kingfisher encyclopedia as a spine. The downside is that every student is doing individual work, and I worry that we won't be able to help them enough with things like finding additional books, outlining, and summarizing. My own child needed a lot of help when we started on that level! 3. Maybe something where they take turns teaching for the week? Any suggestions??

  12. We use SWB's History History the World series as a spine for our high school history curriculum, then add Great Books and Great Courses. However, the series ends with the Renaissance book, requiring us to find a spine for modern history. What are you using?
  13. Hello Hive, Well-Trained Mind Press is in the early stages of revising the book-lists (fiction and non-fiction) in the Activity Book of "The Story of the World, Volume 3." We'll be adding new titles that have come out in the past 15 years (or titles that we missed the first time around!), and deleting some that are so thoroughly out of print that no parent could be expected to find them. We have a plan for doing it that we think will provide a variety of parental viewpoints, and keep any one contributor from getting stuck with too much work. We've divided the book into sections (chapters 1-7, 8-14, etc). Each section would pay a little differently, based on how many books we need to find (you'll notice that some sections need a lot more work than others do). Each contributor can do one, two, or three sections, but no more (to spread the work around). Each section will end up being a combination of the work of two contributors plus our editors. Time Frame: We will ask you to submit a sample list from a particular chapter, to evaluate your abilities. Your full booklists would be due by mid-to-late January of 2019. Here's what we consider a "successfully found" book:- age appropriate - period appropriate - in print (we make occasional exceptions if it's REALLY good) - available in physical form (you can make 1 fiction exception and 1 nonfiction exception per chapter...kindle, etc...but not more than that) - relatively easy to find - write a one-sentence summary like we did in the first edition We will provide a PDF of the original booklist, and a PDF of the actual textbook; we have gone through and crossed out the out-of-print ones or ones we want to delete, and we'll tell you how many fiction and nonfiction books are now needed for each chapter (it's usually between 2 and 8 books needed from each genre). If this interests you, and you feel you could do a good job with it, please contact Justin Moore (justin@welltrainedmind.com) for further information.

  15. The Potter School is offering a US Military History class. It of course appeals to my son. Do you think this could count as the traditional US History class - or must I add something to it and then what to add? The class is using a book called, "For the Common Defense: A Military History of the United States from 1607-2012." Your thoughts would be appreciated! Shelley in MA
  16. I am planning for 5th grade History and would appreciate your thoughts regarding sourcing books for the extra reading. My daughter will be studying history with her Uncle so she will need to have all the books with her to take to his house. The plan at the moment is to have a quick look at the pages to be covered in the week ahead (we will be using Usborne EWH as the spine) and borrow books on the topics she thinks she may be interested in studying further. In addition to this I'm going to buy a second hand encyclopedia set and we have the SOTW books which she absolutely loves. This is the plan. Back in the real world, it's a realistic expectation that I just won't make it to the library every week and if we do make it, often the books we want are not available (perhaps a plan might be to look ahead the whole month rather than the week). I am working single mother and despite good intentions and the best laid plans sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day. So, I would like to know if you think the encyclopedia and SOTW would be sufficient extra reading for those weeks where we are making do with what we have? Obviously the internet has a wealth of sites etc I would just prefer extra reading to from a physical book for the most part. Are there any other resources I could purchase that would be a worthwhile to add? I don't have a huge budget, but I will invest in quality resources if it covers many topics. TIA :)
  17. I'm trying to balance my creative and practical sides and would love to hear what has been your favourite way to do the timeline. I like to ease of just buying the blank pages from rainbow resource however with postage that's $30 AU. I found this printable which I like the idea of however it opened the door to all sorts of creative possibilities! I would love to hear/see how your doing it in your homeschool if you would like to share with me.
  18. Has anyone included the Chinese historian Sima Qian in readings of the work of early historians? I am wondering what parts might be most interesting or useful to read. Or perhaps you could suggest a book of excerpts. We have already done Herodotus and Thucydides and are planning to do some more Romans. But I would like to broaden the focus to look at early historians, not just early historians of the west.
  19. I'm looking for American History that is like Mistery of History and/or Story of the World. The main thing I am looking for is the CDs and activity workbook on CD as well. Thank you for your input! I have a 4yr old, 6 yr old, 8yr old, and almost 11 yr old. And we have not done American History! 🤦ðŸ»â€â™€ï¸ Thanks, K
  20. Hey everyone! I need help. I've been perusing these forums since '13 & this is my first post. I've been homeschooling for 6 years, but have just recently read TWTM. Omg. I wish I had done that 6 yrs ago, it would've changed everything. I have been eclectic, using several of the curriculum mentioned across the forum & wanted terribly to tackle subjects like Latin & logic, not really realizing I was running parallel in my curriculum choices. Now that I've decided to jump all in, I'm not quite sure how to transition my upcoming 9th & 10th graders into TWTM method for history & lit when it's so different than what they know. I'm worried about transitioning into rhetoric (in general) without the foundation of grammar & logic, especially. This year we did Notgrass History, combining the history, lit & Bible. We love the primary documents, but there's no study of lit analysis. My gifted/ADHD 10th grader enjoys the reading & answering the questions, hates the projects. This doesn't bother me too much b/c he enjoys the writing, too. My 9th grader has worked through dysgraphia (still working), possibly dyslexia (at least the symptoms, but they're gone now) & hoooorid spelling. He is so bright, probably gifted as well. He did the lower level Notgrass this year, but pigs will fly before he will do all that writing in the upper level Notgrass. I've looked at SWB history books online, they don't seem like an option at all (tho they do love to read), but I looove the idea of the chronological history study. I have an upcoming 1st & 5th grader I intend to take through SOTW 1 & would love to have my 9th grader start with Ancients as well. My 10th grader could do Medieval. I've read about every history thread I could find, but really don't know where to start. Any advice on transitioning into classical/ WTM in general during rhetoric is coveted as well. TIA!!
  21. My oldest is starting high school soon and I am not sure what to do for history. I'm not sure what to cover or when. I was thinking of doing a year each of US history, world history, geography, and civics/government. We have done the 4 year history cycle until 8th grade when she did US history. She wants to do geography this year. Does the order matter? Do you have any suggestions for geography? I'm in the "panic that I'm going to screw this up for her" stage of planning.
  22. Hi all, The Study and Teaching Guide for the History of the Ancient World is now available for purchase on our site. Amazon should be shipping the book soon, too (it takes a bit longer to complete their warehouse process). Quick Description... Susan Wise Bauer's "The History of the Ancient World" is widely used in advanced high-school history classes, as well as by home educating parents. This Study and Teaching Guide, designed for use by both parents and teachers, provides a full curriculum with study questions and answers, critical thinking assignments, essay topics, instructor rubrics, and test forms. Explanations for answers and teaching tips are also included. Designed by historian and teacher Julia Kaziewicz, in cooperation with Susan Wise Bauer, makes "The History of the Ancient World" more accessible to parents & teachers. Note, since some folks had asked: The first half of the book is for the instructor. The student's pages, in the back half, are perforated. SAMPLES of the curriculum can be found on this page. Justin from Peace Hill Press
  23. What resources have you used for setting up a AP Art History Course for your student? Thinking of using Khan Academy, some Practice Exams, and something that teaches writing for art history. Has anyone done notebook with this subject? TIA for sharing your ideas.
  24. Looking ahead to start planning for high school - We hope to follow the WTM plan for combining History and Literature. In TWTM (2009), it says to make a realistic assessment of how many books the student will be able to cover, and then choose 8, or 12, or 18. Of course this will vary depending on the student's reading skills and length/difficulty of the books read. But how to choose which will make up the book list? The shortest, so you can read more? Whatever looks interesting? A sampling from different time periods? Without being familiar with many of these books, we are not sure what to use as a deciding factor. Also, anyone who has followed this plan - any thoughts, suggestions, things you wish you'd done differently or that worked well? Thanks for your help!
  25. Good morning! I am looking for a literature based history specifically to go with Classical Conversations Cycle 3 next year. =)
