Brief Intro from the website:
Easy Classical Early Modern History Schedule includes 36 week-long schedules plus 45+ pages of charts, sheets, and helps that will enhance your child's learning. Each week's lesson has review questions with answers, and quizzes included with each lesson. This schedule also includes a shopping list for the next day, as well as detailed instructions on how to use the schedules and the books you purchase. We send you all of this neatly placed in a 1" 3-ring binder.
Are you interested in the Classical Approach, but don't know where to begin? Have you read Susan Wise Bauerʼs book The Well-trained Mind: a
Guide to Classical Education at Home and then had no idea how to put it into practice? Well, Sandra Williams has done all the leg-work for you. This schedule (just one of several available) covers Early Modern History - 1820. With a full year's worth of schedules, you will know what to do when. It is easy to plan ahead with included reading lists and supply shopping lists. Sandra also includes Comprehension Questions, with answers provided for the parent. Step-by-step Sketch Activities are included in the back; these are always a hit with my children.
A schedule such as this is intended to make history come alive for your student; the lesson being centered around Living Books, instead of fluff. It covers topics more thoroughly than most standard textbooks and aids in retention.
The schedule is colorful with an easy-to-read layout and cute icons to remind you of important activities. It is easily customized to fit a family's individual needs.
