Extra reading & documentaries to go with K12 Human Odyssey vol. 3?


Recommended Posts

I did, but I'm not sure where it is now...

 

She read a lot of narrative nonfiction but didn't watch as many documentaries as for volumes 1 and 2.

 

I'll see what I can dig up later :)

Thanks!! I saved your American Odyssey list for next year. It is AMAZING. :)

We didn't use K12 Human Odyssey but rather a hodge podge of materials I put together. 

 

Here are some resources my teen used when studying that time period in 9th grade.

Books:

Mao Tse-Tung and His China (Albert Marrin)
The Depression and New Deal (Robert McElvaine)
Surviving Hitler (Andrea Warren)
North to Freedom (Anne Holm)
Maus I, II
Vietnam War (Marilyn Young et al.)
Fax from Sarajevo
A Little History of the World by E. H. Gombrich
All Quiet on the Western Front
Pygmalion
Diary of Anne Frank
Animal Farm (Orwell)
The Mouse that Roared
W;t (Edson)
Material World
Persepolis

Videos:

Wit

Poetry:

Be aware that we are quite liberal, so some of these may not be appropriate for your family.
