History Revealed Ancient Civilizations & The Bible Visitor Review:
It has a compilation of wonderful resources to supplement learning. It is for a more skilled teacher and requires a lot of prep work for the teacher. Because it lends itself to many learning styles, you will have to come up with materials, how to assess their work, and not be very structured.
The program is structured into a format of “unit studies” in chronological order which is very cool. The program is organized. I do not think it is for young kids even though it does have an elementary activity book to incorporate them. I made it to about the fourth month and had to slow it wayyy down. I am going to use it this year for a couple of months like I did last year.
If you are one of those people that want to look under every rock to get the most out of it–you will be frustrated–it is incredibly rich. Not only is it rich, it is consuming. I found it took over our read aloud time because I chose historical fictions from her recommendations.
History dominated our day. She has a yahoo support group. She is also on facebook. I have learned more than my kids in the fact I had to research to put stuff together. Her enthusiasm is good but sometimes annoying when you feel like the unfamiliar words are going over your head on the audios.
I won’t re-gift this for a very long time and I have learned a great deal from this. It was just too rich for us like eating too much fudge. We are not big history people. Wish we were.
Oh, and some people mix Mystery of History and this curriculum! That would be ideal but I don’t know how they are doing that!
