HIGH SCHOOL HISTORY





For the last ten years, we have done basically the same curriculum for history.  Using first Tapestry of Grace and then My Father’s World, we have learned history from the beginning of time to modern day, on a four year rotation.

My two current high school students have done the rotation 2.5 times.

I don’t know how they feel, but frankly, I’m bored.

I cannot bring myself to have them start the rotation again, so we are shaking things up a bit.

This year I gave them the option to choose a country or a time period to study in-depth.  They jumped at the chance and chose Scotland.  Having visited Scotland in April, I know this will be a very rich study.

Scotland has a very interesting history with many famous authors and artists to tie into our Literature and fine arts studies.

If you would like to follow along with our studies, sign up to receive posts by email.  

What about you? Have you done something different for history or another subject?  How did you design your curriculum?
