  1. I am trying to figure out a history plan for middle school (6th, 7th, 8th). I am learning toward using: OUP The World in Ancient Times set (6th grade) OUP The Medieval and Early Modern World set (7th grade) That leaves 8th to focus on American History. Has anyone used the OUP Pages from History books? Are there study guides or TM's with these? I checked out The Bill of Rights; A History in Documents from the library, and I like what I see quite a bit. There are too many volumes to read them all, but I am wondering if using some of the these volumes could make a decent American history year. Perhaps something like this: 7th (for Civics study)--The Bill of Rights Summer before 8th--Colonial America 8th--American Revolution, Civil War, WWI, WWII, Cold War That could be over the top regarding amount of war reading, and I could replace one or more of those with other volumes. On the other hand, knowing and understanding the major wars of the US gives a good framework of the history. We could fill in the areas between those wars with resources that are less detailed. We have done quite a bit of American history already, so I think doing something in depth such as these volumes may be just the thing before high school. This is my idea for the time being anyway. If anyone has used these books or has any opinions, I am all ears.
  2. Hi-- Thanks to the sale on most of these volumes at the OUP site, I got the volumes I was missing so I'm planning on using them for history next year. But, I have two questions: - I'm sure someone already has lists of corresponding living books (non-fiction, historical fiction both). Can you point me to them? - Are the teaching and student guides worth it? We prefer not to use workbooks, but these felt meatier than that when I looked at the previews online. I just couldn't get a good sense as to their true value. Thanks!
  3. Does there exist anywhere a correlation between the chapters of HO Volume 2 and the OUP books? I know there are not that many middle ages books but I am hoping someone perhaps has already done this work. TIA!!!!
  4. 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 Ancient South Asian World here The Ancient Chinese World here The Ancient Greek World here The Ancient Roman World here The Medieval and Early Modern World series by Oxford University Press full set seen here (not all volumes are used this year) The European World 400-1450 here The African and Middle Eastern World 600-1500 here The Asian World 600-1500 here An Age of Empires 1200-1750 here This schedule is intended for a full year's history study by a middle grade or logic stage student. The additions of book or other resources would enrich the material but are not necessary. Human Odyssey chapters are listed first with each chapter's title. Underneath each is a listing of the corresponding Oxford University Press volume(s) in purple. Please note that some chapters are listed out of numerical order. Instead they are listed as the material is covered within the Human Odyssey chapters. Part 1 Chapter 1: How Civilized! From Hunters-Gatherers to City-Builders Chapter 2: Unearthing Sumer The Ancient Near Eastern World Chapters 1-3 Chapter 3: Working, Trading, and Building in Sumer The Ancient Near Eastern World Chapters 12,13,15 Chapter 4: Honoring the Gods: Religion in Ancient Sumer The Ancient Near Eastern World Chapters 5,6,9 Chapter 5: Passing It On: The Written Word in Ancient Sumer The Ancient Near Eastern World Chapters 4,14,11,7 Chapter 6: The Sun Sets on Sumer The Ancient Near Eastern World Chapter 8,10 Chapter 7: Nebuchadnezzar's Babylon The Ancient Near Eastern World Chapter 22 Chapter 8: The Spread of Civilization: Egypt The Ancient Egyptian World Chapters 1,5,2,3,8,10,7,6,4,9,12,14,17,21,11 Chapter 9: Three Pharohs of the New Kingdom The Ancient Egyptian World Chapters 13-15, 18, 16 Chapter 10: The Spread of Civilization: India and China The Ancient South Asian World Chapters 1-10 The Ancient Chinese World Chapters 1-5 (through the Shang dynasty) Part 2 Chapter 1: The Life and Ideas of Confucius The Ancient Chinese World Chapter 10 Chapter 2: The Confucian Legacy The Ancient Chinese World Chapters 13-14 Chapter 3: The Birth of Hinduism The Ancient South Asian World Chapters 10 (the later part),11,13 Chapter 4: The Life of the Buddha The Ancient South Asian World Chapter 14 Chapter 5: The Buddha's Teaching and Legacy The Ancient South Asian World Chapter 18 Chapter 6: A Chosen People The Ancient Near Eastern World Chapters 18-20 Chapter 7: The People of the Law The Ancient Near Eastern World Chapters 20-22 Chapter 8: The Greeks and Their View of Nature The Ancient Greek World Chapters 3,4,1,2,17 Chapter 9: The Greek Celebration of Man The Ancient Greek World Chapters 5,6,18,19,7 Part 3 Chapter 1: Two Greek City-States The Ancient Greek World Chapters 12,8 plus 9-11,21 Chapter 2: Defending Greece: The Persian Wars The Ancient Greek World Chapter 13 Chapter 3: The Age of Pericles The Ancient Greek World Chapters 14,19,20 Chapter 4: A Fall, a Rise, and a Final Burst of Glory The Ancient Greek World Chapters 16,22-26 Chapter 5: The Roman Republic The Ancient Roman World Chapters 1-4 Chapter 6: Rome Rising and the Republic Challenged The Ancient Roman World Chapters 6,5,7,15 Chapter 7: Days of Empire The Ancient Roman World Chapters 11,13,20,8,18,10 Chapter 8: Judea and the Rise of Christianity The Ancient Roman World Chapter 23-24 Chapter 9: The Spread of Christianity The Ancient Roman World Chapter 24 Chapter 10: Rome on the Wane The Ancient Roman World Chapters 24,14,25-26 Part 4 Chapter 1: Rome Moved East: The Byzantine Empire The European World Chapters 1(to p.28),3(pp.46-49) Chapter 2: The Rise of Islam The African and Middle Eastern World Chapters 1-2 Chapter 3: The Spread of Islam The African and Middle Eastern World Chapters 3,5,7 Chapter 4: Ghana and Mali: Two Medieval African Trading Empires The African and Middle Eastern World Chapter 9-10 Chapter 5: Europe's Early Middle Ages The European World Chapter 2-3 Chapter 6: Thunder from the North: The Viking Age The European World Chapter 4 Chapter 7: Of Land and Loyalty The European World Chapters 4,7(pp. 106-110 Chapter 8: An Age of Faith: The Church in Western Europe The European World Chapter 6 Chapter 9: Monarchs on the Rise The European World Chapters 5,8,7 Chapter 10: China in the Middle Ages The Asian World Chapters 2,6,4(silk road) Chapter 11: Mongols on the Move The Asian World Chapters 7,4 Chapter 12: Europe's Calamitous Fourteenth Century The European World Chapters 11,12 An Age of Voyages Chapter 1
  5. "Times", that is. Bleargh. I've read all I can find on the boards about using these for Logic Stage history. They're ridiculously expensive, and my library doesn't have them. I own the Suzanne Strauss Art books AND Kingfisher. The library has Gombrich and some Hillyer. So, why am I still asking? The primary sources. From what I can see, in addition to the primary sources volume, there are primary sources seeded throughout the texts, as well...within the amazon preview of the Roman book I see art familiar to us from Lively Latin, as well. The narrative seems very accessible. We don't have great used book stores here, and I'm thinking that by the time I pay shipping on each individual used book, I might be better off just buying the set new with my B&N discount. I have time to plan, as we're still a year away from Logic Stage. Also, the Medieval and Early Modern set looks like it would be good for two years of instruction. I could use some opinions. Are any of you using these?
  6. I'm hoping I can avoid re-inventing the wheel. Has anyone correlated Story of the World with the World in Ancient Times series? We have a co-op class using SOTW and we'd like to have the olders do WAT and be more-or-less on a similar topic, but with the more in-depth reading, etc. I'm hoping someone has looked at the two side-by-side and has some suggestions for how to make the two work together. To be clear, the youngers would be doing SOTW and the olders WAT, the idea would be to schedule it so that when the youngers are doing, say, Egypt, the olders would be doing Egypt as well, so that hands-on activities and such would be the same for both. The co-op meets once a week and gives homework for the rest of the weekdays. Thanks! I have to run but will check in late this evening. Any thoughts or help or BTDT wisdom is appreciated.
