  1. Has anyone used the Schmoop European History course? Trying to cover that with 11th grade dd, and we are floundering a bit from a lack of structure. I'm considering moving to this, but we haven't used any Schmoop courses before. Also, do I need to have both a teacher and a student account, or could I just subscribe to the teacher option and let dd work through that? Thank you!
  2. So I'm trying to figure out what we will do for history next year. The boys will be 10th and 11th grade. Last year we did AP US Government and AP Comparative Government (I wanted to take advantage of our living in DC with the US Government). The year before we did a long study of the modern age from 1850 through the Cold War. It was incredible, spanning about 16 months with lots of Civil War battle field trips and other great stuff. We had considered doing one semester of economics and another semester of an anthropological view of the history of armed conflict. Then I reconsidered because I thought that this would be the last chance my older son would have to prep for a full year AP exam before starting college applications. (Whatever he takes senior year will not have exam scores back until after college application season is done.) I thought that we might instead do AP European History. We lived in Europe for three years. European History is a favorite subject at our house. But as I review the sample syllabi, I'm struck by how much content is in them. There is one week for the Napoleonic wars, one week for the Reformation. I'm not very good at survey courses, because we love to read and dig into a topic. This seems to be a common complaint. The AP European History course will be revised in a couple of years to have more of a focus on historical techniques and less on specific content. (I'm not sure what I think of this.) AP US History has been revised. 2014-15 is the first year of the revised course. I'm having trouble figuring out exactly what a revised course would look like. I haven't found samples of the new style of multiple choice questions or free response questions. There will still be a DBQ, but there will also be more short answer responses. I'm concerned about trying to do a course in the first year of a revision. But I like the concept of giving more focus on history themes and techniques and less on a march through time. I think my middle son especially would appreciate not doing a long focus on the 19th century, since he's expressed feeling that he spent a lot of time on that recently. Does anyone have particular insight on either European History as currently designed or the revision of US History? Has anyone done World History recently (because I think it was revised a few years ago with a similar intent)? Any great resources for Euro or APUSH?
  3. Any ideas to help me tie in geography and history for boys in three different grade levels while we live in France for three months? Enjoyed TSW and HItory Odyssey, but want to focus more narrowly on Europe. My boys would probably enjoy mapwork. I've previously only homeschooled one grade level and now taking on three at a time! We will only do math, history/geography and French while we are there. Thanks
  4. OK-- thanks to everyone for replies and suggestions to help me plan for study abroad with my three boys-- we're here in France. Here's our blog: http://theshortstrip.blogspot.fr My curriculm blog is already up, but I would have liked to have seen how others organized a similar trip/semester abroad. I guess I'll blaze the trail and you can thank me later -- unless it all goes terribly wrong, then I'll know why I couldn't find more infromation about!
  5. Just wondering how people who do AP Eu Hx give the credits...do you also do a separate World History credit and then count the AP as an elective? I know a lot of states require a World History credit...but some colleges would like to see the AP Eu Hx.... It seems that doing the AP Eu Hx wouldn't count as a W Hx credit since it is only covering Europe and not the whole world.... But I'm running into a credit planning problem, so just wondering what others do... Thanks for any ideas, Joan
  6. Most people outside our area have not heard of this event because the attempted takeover was rebuffed. But if it had succeeded, the nature of Geneva would have been radically altered - thus the Genevois are very aware of this event and now celebrate with a festival every year and the largest historical parade in Europe.... At the end of this post there's a link to the yearly historical parade which has interesting footage for those who like historical costumes and settings.. So what happened and why is it important? In 1602, Geneva was not part of Switzerland yet. It was a 'city state', like Venise and others....Here's a picture - those parts on the bottom are the city walls to keep out invaders... (this picture is from a later time I believe as there is no moat, but you get an idea of the walls...) Here's another view of the formation of the city walls in 1602.. The Duke of Savoy (who was Catholic) was very interested in taking Geneva for himself. Even though there was a peace treaty signed, he sent his soldiers in on the darkest night of the year (calendar was different then) to try to take over. Geneva was important as the city of Calvin, who had already passed away, as a Protestant refuge for Huguenots escaping from France...though in 1602 the tide of refugees had diminished due to the Edict of Nantes signed in 1598....still, the tide of refugees rose again when persecution increased in subsequent years....Some of them settled permanently and brought important skills and connections with them....Since Huguenots spread also to England, the Huguenots then had banking ties to England for example... So - the soldiers tried to take over and came over the walls. Both the Genevois soldiers and the citizens worked together to turn them out. There is a famous story of a lady (named Mere Royaume) who supposedly threw a cauldron of hot vegetable soup out the window onto the soldiers. Chocolate makers have taken up this image and now make chocolate pots every year which Genevois will break while saying ""Ainsi périssent les ennemis de la République! " (Thus perish the enemies of the Republic) Here are some links to help you discover what is celebrated in Geneva now....It is called the 'Fete de l'escalade' (escalade means scaling the walls) People also dress up for the parade or go around and sing at people's doors and in bars - expecting a little money... Bits of the parade mixed in with mini interviews.... (If you go to the YouTube page where this is found, on the right there are other parade links - BUT the 'Lake Parade' is NOT at all the same and is not for kids KWIM) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPlwl3rlxM0&feature=related http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huguenot http://www.swissinfo...tml?cid=1794410 http://www.herodote....ages/Geneve.jpg Fabrication of chocolate pot (une marmite) http://www.1602.ch/i...mid=186&lang=fr Joan
  7. Recommended by the author of the site to me today, L. Tredwell. The Renaissance Documents are pretty nifty. Do a ctl/F on this page for this phrase: The Subservience of Women in Medieval Thought I'll pull that one out at breakfast tomorrow for table talk. :lol: Oh, the site, it's here: http://thecaveonline.com/APEH/renaissancedocument.html
  8. Brainstorming for next year. Dd 13/8th is requesting a Brit Lit year for 9th. She is an avid reader. I have Spielvogel's HO (text, TM, study guide & quizzes). I am personally very weak on my European history and will need the hand-holding from HO and some TTC lectures. If we needed more (and I have no idea if we will), I also have A History of World Societies with chapters 8, 13, 15, 17, 23 & 24 dealing with Europe . We could use these activities. I need a Brit Lit program with a strong TM -- and ideally from a Christian worldview (Smarr?). Dd likes the usual suspects (Austen, Bronte). How does this list look? Great Expectations and/or Tale of Two Cities P & P Sense & Sensibility Emma Jane Eyre Wuthering Heights Beowulf Sir Gawain Hamlet Much Adou Merchant of Venice Midsummer Night's Dream Animal Farm Canterbury 'Millers' Tale Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner I'm reading Tale of Two Cities now for the first time. If we tackle this list, I've got some serious pre-reading to do this year. I'd love feedback. Is this a ridiculous idea? Should I just stick with a basic world history survey? That would be super simple with HO. (This year we are doing LL Early American along with Potters School Jr. High US History and Jr. High English 2.) Thank you in advance! :001_smile:
