  2. These are textbooks from educational publishing company K12 that we have been using to study world history during the past 17 months. There are three volumes: Volume 1: Prehistory to the Middle Ages Volume 2: Middle Ages through 1914 Volume 3: 1914 to the present We found out about these books from Well Trained Mind. We are just about to finish Volume 2. The books are comprehensive and very readable. One volume can be covered in 5 to 9 months -- more if you supplement with outside books and movies. There are a few threads here on Well Trained Mind about supplemental materials. We baked a
  3. Okay, since we are using History Odyssey Level 2 Middle Ages, Human Odyssey texts, SOTW 2, KingFisher, and Usborne History Encyclopedia..... We needed a reading chart!! I've noticed A TON of threads on reading schedules for these books...... so I'm sharing ours. I have come across helpful schedules and just meshed them together so it is all in one place rather than separate schedules. So I didn't entirely come up with this myself! I had help from a bunch of you on the WTM Forum! Thank you.... you know who you are. It's not an easy task lining up different sources, but I feel this is pre
  4. I'm trying to round out my resources for history next year, and would really appreciate suggestions, comments, ideas. This will be for a sensitive 10 yo boy who reads well and doesn't particularly like history but does like science. He's more-or-less done a WTMish grammar history cycle, with spottiest coverage for ancients and medieval history, and reads well. My goals are to: * provide rich food for thought and ideas (sort of CM-ish that way), * give a coherent sense of the ancient world and how it followed from prehistory and set the stage for the history that follows * provide

  6. The following information is copied from my blog. I will be adding the additional resources we used this year to the page on my blog only so that this post doesn't get too messy. The main text: The Human Odyssey Vol. 1: Prehistory Through the Middle Ages edited by Mary Beth Klee, John Cribb, and John Holden K12 Inc. publisher ISBN 9781931728539 seen here on Amazon The supporting texts: The World in Ancient Times series by Oxford University Press the entire set here on Amazon The Ancient Near Eastern World here The Ancient Egyptian World here The
  7. My 6th grader is using HO vol 1 as the history spine and she is loving the colorful pages and stories. I do have the teacher's manual and student pages to go along with it and she does do as much she can minus online course material (we are not signed up for the online course). However, I wondered if there was somewhere that I could locate some tests for each chapter or unit. The student pages do have partial unit assessments but I was hoping for something to help gauge how much she is retaining and understanding overall. Thanks.
  8. A few weeks ago I asked about the WTM way of doing Logic stage history and K12's Human Odyssey was recommended. I've read through it to do a quick plan for next year and I've found I don't particularly like the text. It isn't as in depth as I'd hoped and large portions of the readings are stories, often pulled from literature assigned to DS anyways. Before asking about history here, I read through the appropriate sections in the Kingfisher encyclopedia. I think it's a more thorough overview of the time period. Though there's less text, it appears to have more meat on Eastern and American c
  9. Ok, I keep trying to read this book and I'm finding it so boring! I wanted to love it, I really did. I've skipped around to different time periods, thinking maybe I just find Mesopotamian history boring. I thought Confucius was boring, Rome was boring. I'm a bit history nut...it's my favorite subject! So I don't know what gives. I think the book reads like a textbook and not much at all like Joy Hakim's U.S. history books. :sad: I guess I'm back on the hunt for a spine for 7th grade ancient history. Maybe the World in Ancient Times series?? SOTW is too easy for my 7th grader.
  10. We picked SOTW up a bit late this year, and because we've interleaved our history with Ambleside Online Year 2 we've been relaxed in our pace. Could you tell me where you are in SOTW2, and when you expect to finish it? (we're halfway through chapter 8, "Islam Becomes an Empire". It actualy lines up quite nicely with our AO right now ...) :) thanks!
  11. Okay, changes are a coming for my 7th grader. I got Human Odyssey Prehistory through the Middle Ages and love it. Had planned on using with History Odyssey Middle ages. However, not particularly liking history O and not finding Kingfisher History meaty enough. So, where do I go from here? Found the links to match H.O. with SOTW 2. Don't necessarily want to read SOTW but the activity guide seems to be better than history odyssey's. I just got SWB's History of the Medieval World. Has anyone per chance already read it and did a link up with Human Odyssey???? I'm thinking perhaps or wo
  12. Hi! I am interested in this text written for high schoolers but I can't find it anywhere. Any ideas? From what I can tell they have a 3 book set for middle grades and a 1 book covering all of world history for high school. Right?
  13. I'm finally starting to work on my history curriculum for next year. I've decided to move away from SOTW with my rising 7th grader. I will be using the first Human Odyssey book. My question is can I also use this text for my rising 4th grader? He listened in to ancients when he was in kindergarten. I'd like to move on with him as well. I'm ordering a copy of HO from Amazon today. But, I'd like some input from others who have used this book to see if I can adapt it for use in 4th grade. Thanks!
  14. My dd will be in 5th next year, and I am considering using History Odyssey Level 2 - Middle Ages for her, but after reviewing The Story of Mankind I don't think she is going to like it as much having come from SOTW 1 this past year. (We pulled her from PS last year and decided then to start her at the beginning in the history cycle). Has anyone created a schedule showing how k12s Human Odyssey text could be integrated instead of The Story of Mankind?
  15. I would like to purchase K12's HO to have on my bookshelf, along with the teacher guide (and does it come with student pages as well??). I don't want to buy used off amazon if it can be avoided and I've read posted here that it's possible to sign up for K12's course, pay the fee, then pull your child out and you get to keep the materials. Is this legit or something they will get annoyed about? I don't like having people annoyed at me. :o Also, I'm not at all familiar with K12 so could anybody be so kind as to type real slow and (WITH LINKS!!!) walk me through what it is I need to do to
  16. I bought Human Odyssey (used, for an excellent price) and am somewhat happy with it...it seems a bit easy, though, for my almost 13 year old. I do like the look of History Odyssey and am wondering if it would work to combine the two? Use the book lists to reinforce what he reads in Human Odyssey, for example? Use the maps to do the same? Any thoughts? Anyone ever do this? Thanks! Pam
  17. Do you just have your child read the book? We just got this today from a friend, and my daughter loves it. BUT, she says "I am not interested in doing any student pages or workbook pages, I just want to read the book." Hmmm..... How do you do HO with your child? (FTR, I do have student pages in my cart in case we decide to use this, but now I am not sure)
  18. I just received my copy of The Human Odyssey Vol. 1 and I really like the looks of it. I will be using this with my two 7th graders this year and I'm wondering if I should get the teacher's manual and student pages? Does anyone have these? I'm also wondering how I should schedule it. Does anyone have plans they'd like to share? Thanks Susan in TX
  19. I have found the K12 Teacher Guides and Student Guides on Amazon for Intermediate History A. Are these worthwhile? If they are, do you need the student guide or does the teacher guide include all the worksheets, maps, etc.?
  20. Is Human Odyssey suitable for outlining by logic stage students? Dss start 5th grade next year and I want to follow the WTM suggestions re: outlining a history encyclopedia, but Human Odyssey sounds like it will appeal to dss more than the Kingfisher history encyclopedia will. Are any of your logic stage students outlining Human Odyssey? TIA.
  21. I need a secular world history (not world cultures)program for 7th grade. I have to cover ancients through the 1700's or so. I know it's ambitious to cover so much in just one year. We just finished a year of world cultures and we need to focus on history this year. The secular middle school curriculum I have seen is more world cultures oriented than world history oriented. I did find Global History but that seems to be high school level. I really wanted something a little less intense for 7th grade. Any ideas?
  22. Next fall my oldest dc will restart the history cycle with Ancients (7th grade). Either we can do another 4 year cycle (7-10th), or I was thinking doing world history for 2 years (7th-8th), then in 9th grade start with Ancients using VP Ominbus w/Great Books or TOG Year 1 (or something else?). Just wondering if anyone has used K12 for 7th or 8th grade world history. We used K12 years ago when dd was in 2nd grade. But, stopped due to cost, at the time no DSL was available in our area, and being stuck to the computer for most subjects. So, just wondering if you liked/disliked the 7th/8th g
