I understand that it may be some time before the revised history guides for modules 4,5,6 are available. However, I will be using module 4 next year and need to start collecting resources. I do not want to purchase books that will not be in the new guides and was wondering if it is possible to obtain a full or even partial book list for them or at least for module 4. It would be greatly appreciated. If I at least had a partial list I would be able to go ahead and start purchasing those books.
Good question. You’re right, I can’t give a definite answer yet; however, if you want to let me know which grade level(s), I can give you my best preliminary guess for the Middle Ages/Reformation/Renaissance study at this point.BenitaParticipant
I will be using Module 6 next year. I am fine with not purchasing it until Aug. Will the revisions be done for that module by then? If not, no worries. We would still use it. The modules are such a blessing- revised or not!KarenParticipant
Ooooh. I didn’t know they were going to be revised – and I’ll be using Module 4. I was hoping to make my purchases at the CHAP convention in Harrisburg, PA. Will the revisions by done by then (May 8 & 9) and will SCM be there??? I hope, I hope, I hope!
We will actually have a child using each grade level next year. I appreciate that list for Middle/Reformation/Renaissance. That would be wonderful!
Hmmm…. I didn’t mean that I will have one child who will be using each grade level. 🙂 We have a child for each grade level 1 – 9 and the one in 7-9 will also be doing 10 – 12 as he will not do this module a second time.
Just to clarify, the revisions are still several years away. Here’s the overall dream I have:
- New Family spine book for Middle Ages/Renaissance/Reformation and move Famous Men for only older grades;
- See if I can incorporate the remaining volume of the America: The Last Best Hope series for grades 10-12 in the Early Modern study;
- New optional alternate Bible studies for younger grades for those families who feel the GOAL study is too advanced for their little ones;
- Incorporate the remaining Visits to . . . books to make geography studies easier;
- Tidy up any grade-level book substitutions.
As you can see, we have several resources that need to be written/finished before the revisions can happen. I’m glad the modules are very usable as is; these are just tweaks we would like to make based on feedback we’ve gotten over the years.
Jessalee, looking over my very tentative first rough draft, it appears that I have changed very little so far:
- moved the Famous Men books to the 10-12 grades;
- omitted Minstrel in the Tower for 1-3 grades;
- omitted the optional Night Preacher book.
I don’t even have rough drafts for Early Modern or Modern Times yet.
Hope this helps, everybody!
So, you will not be using books by Guerber edited by Miller?
Can I ask why Night Preacher will be omitted? Are there issues with the actual book or is it just thought to be too much and not really needed?
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. It is one of the reasons that I choose to use SCM. I really appreciate it.Stacy MontgomeryModerator
Do you have the new family spine in mind? I’ll also be using this for the fall new school year, and I’ll have ages 11 and 8. Thank you!BenitaParticipant
Thanks, Sonya. I didn’t realize it was down the road. No worries then. We love these Modules. Revised or not. Thanks for all you provide us to enhance our homeschool journey.
The Guerber books are wonderful; however, they are too long to try to fit into one year and still have time for other living books. It seemed too much to try to fit 247 chapters and 600 pages of reading for just the Family spine. We don’t have an alternate to recommend yet, but we’re working on it.
Night Preacher was omitted simply because of time constraints. You know how it goes: you have to choose between all the good books available in order to keep things moving along. 🙂
Thanks for the encouragement, Benita. We’re glad that the modules are helpful and enjoyable as they stand now.
