Annabel Lee Posted January 6, 2011 Share Posted January 6, 2011 ...or perhaps not "can it", but what exactly would I be getting myself into with such an endeavor? I'm torn between the 2; MFW CtG (having only seen samples), and WTM logic-stage history with it's integrated literature & writing. I love the the idea of MFW - so much is integrated: Biblical history, SOTW, easy schedule already done for me, writing assignments, Bible study... But whenever I "stray" from TWTM, I tend to remain grasping to it with one hand while also trying to do the other thing, which has, in the past, resulted in overload and burnout. Can't do it all; must pick and choose. WTM is my ideal standard for academics, and I'm tempted to try to apply it's logic-stage history/lit/writing to MFW. I wonder how much of it is already integrated, and how much I'd be adding or substituting. If it ends up far too messy to mesh the 2, I'll just have to choose between them. But for now, can anyone tell me if MFW history (CtG through modern times) incorporates the following basic elements of WTM logic-stage history? Which parts are already there, and which aren't? -read from a core text (is there a core text in MFW? would I have to add use of an encyclopedia?) and list important facts -use a timeline to mark all dates (does MFW use one?) -use a globe, wall map, and atlas to locate region(s) of study -additonal reading from library or from WTM Resources list -summarize (written) information on 1 or 2 things from the above list of important facts -outline 1 - 4 pgs. of text 1x per week Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
