SnMomof7 Posted January 23, 2011 Share Posted January 23, 2011 Well, we are Canadians, and despite the fact that there are many lovely lit-based currics that combine US/World history, there seems to be no such ready-to-go beast for Canadian history without a lot of tweaking/planning/sheduling. Okay - I'll admit, I love open and go - my own knowledge of history is lacking (typical of public education). In any case, I have a few questions. Any thoughts on MHCE vs. Donna Ward vs. Vince Marquis? Which of these would be easiest to add living books to and move along through chronological Canadian history at the same time? Would any of these be easy to integrate with an existing US/World history program for modern history and somehow line everything up, or is it better to look at doing Canadian history on it's own? I'm really not very organized or good at this lesson planning thing, so it sounds a bit overwhelming to me. We haven't done much so far beyond your typical casual geography etc. We're currently doing Sonlight Core K, next year we'll be doing 1+2 to get an overview of history, but I'm trying to figure out our plans beyond that. How many times should I hit Canadian history and how? HOOOOOWWWWWW???? Sigh. I DO want my children to know US history, but I'm not sure i want to devote two years to it like most 4 year cycles do for modern history and THEN also add on another year of Canadian history...KWIM? Anyone been there, done that before me? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
