I noticed in reading over the middle ages and reformation guide, there are no reviews from people who have used it before. I’m wondering if those of you who have completed this study could please let me know your likes or dislikes, recommendations etc. Thanks so much!sarah2106Participant
We have been through the guide twice now (finished our 8th year HSing) and we really enjoy that guide. The book selections are fantastic. We have learned so much and it was fun cycling back or not and prereading the older level books for my oldest as well as revisiting the younger books for my youngest.
We have used all the guides and enjoy and learn so much every year.TiffanySParticipant
<p style=”text-align: left;”>We (also) have enjoyed the middle ages and reformation studies. We have a few lessons left to finish up our year. A Castle With Many Rooms and Adam of the Road have been our favorite books in this module. A Castle With Many Rooms put history in our hearts and minds; specifically the chapter on the Reformation and Martin Luther. Bible for this plan is once per week, but could be stretched to twice weekly if desired; I like this because we have our own Bible study on the other days, but are intentionally working through the epistles. The only book I did not love is Kon Tiki, which is part of the geography reading. We have used SCM modules 1 through five and have always finished all of the books, but not this one. Aside from that, we really enjoyed this unit.</p>sarah2106Participant
I enjoyed Kon Tiki but I read it to myself. It took some time for me to get into it, but once they were on the ocean traveling I enjoyed it even more. It was a bit long for my kids ages at the time for a read aloud. I could see having my older student now read it on her own. It an optional book as part of Visits to Central and South Americamymommy1Participant
Kon Tiki is an enjoyable documentary as well, only about 1 hour. It’s on Amazon prime.mymommy1Participant
Any reviews on the 10-12 level books? Did you feel like they were enough and left time for literature, or did you make changes?ErinDParticipant
I cannot comment on the time spent, but I can tell you that we really enjoyed Men of Iron and The Lantern Bearers here. The Black Arrow and The King’s Fifth are also good. We haven’t read the others.
