Out-of-print or hard-to-find books have been replaced and high school credit suggestions have been added for this exciting year of history, geography, and Bible.

Early Modern & EpistlesIn Early Modern & Epistles, Second Edition, you will find a complete book list for grades 1–12 for the entire year, a weekly schedule, and daily itineraries to show you how much to read from which book and when.

Comments from Families Who Use Our History Lesson Plan Books

“We have loved using this! It is so well laid out and organized, and our kids have really looked forward to history every day. They have learned South America perfectly, which had it not been written in for me to do weekly, I probably would have forgotten to do it more often than not. The reading choices have been so fun and informative, and my library has had every single one of them, making this such an affordable history curriculum. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is wondering if it is a good fit for their family.” —swelb21

“WE LOVE THIS BOOK!! Or, books, really. 🙂 I cannot believe the enthusiasm that my DD’s have developed with this subject. It was the subject of whining and tears of frustration , and now it’s excitement! Our girls are 7 and 4, we’re teaching 2nd and preK….the amazing way these books “talk” to the readers/listeners has absolutely captured my daughters’ minds. My husband has listened to countless re-tellings at the end of many of his work days, as well. He has listened in on other day’s lessons and commented just the other night that he is loving our history choice, we both wish we had this ourselves when growing up. History makes for a fantastic story, if told the right way…..and SCM really put together a wonderful way to share it! Thank you thank you thank you!!!” —MonikaNC
