Catherine Posted January 11, 2012 Share Posted January 11, 2012 My fifth grade ds is just hating the TWTM-style history we are attempting to do. I have him read the sections of the history encyclopedia, write facts, outline, do research. Etc. He just is not interested in the topics, hates writing, etc. He is a very reluctant writer. That is certainly part of our problem. But given that, and the fact that he's only 10 1\2, is struggling through WWE 3 this year, I think he's just too young for this and I'm planning a mid-year switch of gears. So far, what I've planned is to have him listen to The Teaching Company's Famous Greeks (he loves it) and Famous Romans, several documentaries are in my Netflix list, I have several books plus TWTM's ancients reading list, which he's doing OK with. Can anyone recommend a history curriculum that I can use as a guide? Something that does include writing, as he very much needs the practice. OR should I push him to write using WWE?
