  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. :)

  5. For our current year, we are in the history cycle of 1500 to 1850 AD. For my logic level student, we have planned to read 4 literatures per term (there are 3 terms) (and we are going to read most, not all, of TWTM logic literature list for grade 7) along with Canadian Literature (1 book), Shakespeare and Poetry. I am finding it is still too much for us to cover. How do I know what books to read and which can be cut? I would like to get my list down to about about 2 literatures, Shakespeare and Poetry, therefore I would like to know what book I could cut from our list of TWTM logic literature l

  9. Dear Forum Folk, Note: WTMA Fall registration has closed, so subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Facebook to receive announcements for spring registration! Did you know that our Well-Educated Minds program offers courses for adult learners year-round as an Independent Learning Module? This provides the opportunity for independent learning at your own pace. The Well-Trained Mind has been in the classical education business for over 15 years, providing homeschooling families with high-quality, ground-breaking resources that combine the best of the classical tradition with in
  10. I am interested in if anyone else has had their high schooler(s) read Uhry's famous play, as I think I would like to include it next year as one of the two non-Shakespearean plays covered. We are Georgian's, my children are Jewish, and it has much historical importance (we recently visited The Temple, the synagogue which was bombed); not to mention, there's a great movie of it and a recent PBS stage production to be watched, too! I don't want to do any plays which cannot be watched either on stage, filmed on stage, or as a movie version. Thanks!
  11. I'm trying to decide what will fit my daughter best for high school language arts and history. She completed Writing with Skill 1 and is halfway through Writing with Skill 2. In 9th grade she did MFW's Ancient History and Literature. Last year she di MFW's World History and Literature. She struggled both years to write the essays. I want her to finish WWS 2 and do WWS 3 over the next two years. She will do MFW's 11th grade program in the fall. It looks like she will be doing a lot of literature analysis and very little writing. Since WWS is considered middle school level, I'm wonde
  12. I am starting with the lit list in the WTM, but I would like to balance/lighten it with other less heady but still relevant/worthwhile book selections, e.g. young adult historical fiction. Our history spines will be The History of Ancient World and Mystery of History. I would appreciate seeing other people's reading lists who are correlating literature with history for this time period. I am open to other curriculum suggestions as well. I am a last minute planner, so this is just my rough draft. Thanks!
  13. I'm hoping for some feedback from those of you who have used easy abridged versions of the classics. We have several different versions available at our library, but not necessarily the ones recommended in TWTM. Are any of these worth our time? Calico illustrated classics Classic starts Eyewitness classics Stepping stone Classic starts Step into classics Great Illustrated classics Specifically interested in these titles: Robinson Crusoe Gulliver's Travels Pilgrim's Progress Hunchback of Notre Dame Les Miserables The Three Musketeers Man in the Iron Mask A Christmas Carol
  14. I know this has been discussed before, so if anyone can direct me to a thread where it has been hashed out, that would be most welcome. I have 9th grade (yikes!) mostly planned, in concept: Geometry Biology Integrated Health & Fitness (OM) Spanish 2 But I'm not exactly sure how to manage credits for English and History. What I have planned feels like 3 distinct things, although each might not be a whole credit: English: Rhetoric & Composition English: Ancient Literature Ancient History Or, it could be 2 things, which is actually how many credits worth of work I want
  15. I just wanted to recommend the Kaplan Sat Score Raising Classic series for those who still read hard copy books. These are popular literary classics with important vocabulary and definitions on the left hand side and the text on the right hand side. See Look Inside for an example. The vocabulary words are also bolded in the text. There is an index in the back of the book which shows all the vocabulary which has been defined in the text. Obviously, they don't define every word but I think they have selected appropriately challenging but not too obscure words. While it looks like these were
  16. I have in front of me pp. 494-497 of WTM with the high school reading list and it seems...ambitious for us. What would be your absolute minimum list of challenging Great Works of Literature that absolutely must be read in 4 years of high school? Canterbury Tales? Dante's Inferno? As a math science gal, I hardly know what's what. Thanks!
  17. I just received an email from Essentials in Writing about how they are working on an Essentials in Literature program for middle and high schoolers. Using EIW and EIL together will make up a high school LA course. I can hardly wait! Hope it comes out by next school year! Edit to add: EIW says that Essentials in Literaure should be available by the spring of 2016.
  18. Dear Forum Folk, We hope you have found The Well-Trained Mind and these forums to be excellent resources for your home schooling efforts! We’ve been in the classical education business for over 15 years, providing homeschooling families with high-quality, ground-breaking resources that combine the best of the classical tradition with innovative teaching methods. In fact, more than half a million parents have successfully used the curricula, book lists, and methods of The Well-Trained Mind to teach their children at home. Now, we’re excited to bring you the second academic year
  19. I am contemplating mixing up DS's output requirements for high school literature and social studies so that he isn't only writing essays. I think I've read either here and/ or on the hs2coll group that others have done the same e.g. apart from literary analysis via essays, someone's DC made a map of a fictional world, another wrote fan fiction, etc. I hope I didn't dream that I read this lol. Some of the ideas DS and I discussed were designing a card game based on a series of books by a favorite author, creating a short film, recording an audiobook, writing up alternative endings etc. He w
  20. Since we are going back to homeschooling after two years teaching/attending a private school I feel like I'm back to the drawing board! My middle son is 13 (8th grade) and youngest is 9 (4th grade). Both boys. 13yo is a fairly strong reader, 9 yr old is like pulling teeth but I want him to love reading as much as I do. *I am considering Wayfarers so that I can combine them (I'm still helping/monitoring my 16 year who is doing Virtual High School). *I don't want to miss out on the awesome younger classics so though I have Omnibus I I think I will save that for high school. I was h
  21. Help, please. My dd will be 7th grade next year. Ever since finishing OPGTTR in K, she has been ahead in reading/literature. I've slowed her curriculum down at times to work on comprehension and other reading skills, but she is finishing CLE 8th grade reading this week. I've been told on the high school board that I can't/shouldn't count high school work until she is 9th grade. My cover school (we are in AL) administrators say I can count anything done at a high school level towards high school, so I could start her on high school work if I wanted to. She is doing R&S grammar on g
  22. Okay, so I've tried posting a couple of times with no response to questions about Read With the Best. Has ANYBODY used the program? I would love to hear some feedback and to know what you used alongside of it for history. If anyone has found another American Literature based wrting program I'd love to hear about that as well. Thanks so much!!! Debbie :bigear:
  23. Hi, In looking for High School level writing programs I'm curious what others have used? What you liked, didn't like, etc..? Our son will be finishing WWS2 along with working through parts of Lively Art of Writing this year (8th grade). This Fall he will be ready for something new. I am finding this more challenging that I thought in searching for a good writing program and/or class. Most of the classes I've seen recommended look very expensive ($600+), though I'm sure they have their merit. But we are already outsourcing math and science, so costs are really adding up. My wife w
  24. Hello, all. I'm new here and have a concern as I plan for next year. I'm sure this topic has been visited many times so forgive me for redundancy if it's an old tune. I have 4 girls who are currently in 8th, 6th, 4th and 1st. I am starting to plan for next year and am getting very nervous about a few things, especially writing. My eldest spent grades 4 - 6 in PS, where everything came very easy for her, and she did not have much intentional instrucion in grammar or writing. I have not been as successful in writing instruction at home as I'd like the last 2 years, and my dd has not really
  25. Languages in general are not my subject. On the foreign language front, we have found a couple publishers that really work well and I am sort of blindly trusting that they are not total quacks. So far, they appear not to be. However, I still do not have a publisher/company that I'm really sold on for English. As such, every year it is a bit up in the air for what we will do next year. My inner planning freak doesn't like this. I know enough to realize that it works very well to have a general theme to the school year and a specific goal we are trying to accomplish. From there, I can norm
