  • Sonya,

    I’m going through our Middle Ages/Ren/Reform. guide before we begin school next week, and I’m noticing that the lessons for Famous Men of the MA does not line up with the lessons you have those chapters in. For example, some of the chapter numbers are different in the guide than the book, and, some of the lessons you have scheduled are not in the same order as they appear in FM. Can you help? Is that on purpose, or a typo? Do I follow the FM book in order, or use the guide where those differ from each other? An example of that would be where in the guide, Robert Bruce is listed as the lesson before Marco Polo, but in the FM book, Robert Bruce is the chapter after Marco Polo.

    Also, in our Ancient Rome guide, it mentioned near the end, that in the next year we’d learn about St. Patrick, but, I don’t see that listed in Term 1 of the Middle Ages guide, although I do see a chapter on him in the FM book.

    Thanks so much for your help on this, and thank you for all you’ve done to make our homeschooling walk a little smoother!

    Stacy, which edition of Famous Men do you have? I wonder if some of the mix up is between the first edition (1992) and the second edition (2008). In the 1992 edition, the chapter on Robert Bruce is before Marco Polo; in the 2008 edition, it is after. Chapter IV in the 2008 edition is on St. Patrick; whereas, the 1992 edition does not have a chapter on him. I used the older edition when writing those lesson plans, because I did not know it had been revised. Most of the chapters are consistent between the two editions. You should be able to follow the Middle Ages guide, but feel free to fill in any extra chapters you would like to, as the one on St. Patrick.

    Hi Sonya,

    That’s it! I do have the 2008 edition 🙂 I wondered that after I posted this last night, but wanted to be sure! Thank you so much for getting back to me!
