History in grade 9 when you’ve already done ancients but not included Bible…

    I keep leaning towards SCM history, I love that it includes Bible and Geography. However, we have already done ancients and the Middle Ages. My daughter will be in 9th grade so we do not have 6 years for the full SCM cycle. I considered going to Matthew Through Acts and Ancient Rome and starting there, but again, we already went through that and Middle Ages.

    Help? What would you do?

    And if you wouldn’t use SCM, do you have a suggestion on how to use living books and the Bible with some kind of timeline/guide? I feel overwhelmed thinking I will need to find books for each time period and put them in chronological order, then pair it with what was happening with the Bible…

    You could start with Early Modern for 9th grade and Modern Times for 10th grade to get her American history credit, assuming you are in the US. Early Modern and Modern Times are each a 1/2 credit American history and a 1/2 credit world history, if completed as written. Then, you could move to Genesis through Deuteronomy & Ancient Egypt for 11th followed by Joshua through Malachi & Ancient Greece for 12th. This schedule would move her forward in history and give her the Old Testament lined up with its time periods.

    One thing to keep in mind with Early Modern and Modern Times is that they don’t cover US government or economics. You will need to add courses for government and economics. SCM’s current recommendation for government is Notgrass’ Exploring Government course. We don’t have a recommendation for economics.
