Mystery of History Volume III - Renaissance, Reformation, and Growth of Nations
Companion Guide: Curriculum and Student Workbook
The Mystery of History, Volume III, provides a historically accurate, Christ-centered approach to the rich and provocative era of "The Renaissance, Reformation, and Growth of Nations."
The Mystery of History Companion Guide has been written and designed by the author to help you maneuver through this vast time period, step by step, with ease and flexibility. You will find the weekly format of the Companion Guide to be user friendly and adjustable. With hundreds of activities to choose from, students of all ages, all learning styles, and all abilities will enjoy delving deeper into "The Renaissance, Reformation, and Growth of Nations."
Divided into twenty-eight weeks of study (seven weeks per quarter), the Mystery of History Companion Guide follow the Student Reader lesson by lesson.
This black and white paperback guide book, written also by Linda Lacour Hobar, will contain these familiar and popular components of The Mystery of History series: Pretests; Hands-on/Research Activities for Younger, Middle, and Older Students; Memory Card ideas; bi-weekly quizzes and exercises; timeline helps; maps; supplemental book lists; and more. (Though it is recommended that Volumes I and II be studied prior to this volume, it is not necessary. Volume III can stand alone as a full course of Renaissance/Reformation history.)
From the producers of Mystery of History:
After each and every lesson in The Mystery of History, students are given several optional “Activities” for Younger Students (K – 3rd), Middle Students (4th – 8th), and Older Students (9th – 12th) that will range from fun, hands-on crafts and games to stimulating research projects. While the entire family can read or listen to the same history lessons together (or individually on their own), what students will do with the lessons, or what they will absorb from the lessons, will vary widely by their maturity, skill level, and learning style.
Each Volume increases in difficulty through content, length, and reading level. This means that while Volume I starts at about a 3rd – 4th grade reading level, Volume II moves to a 5th – 6th grade reading level, Volume III advances to a 7th – 8th grade reading level, and Volume IV jumps to a 9th – 10th grade reading level. ,However, the lessons in Volume IV, which are longer in length and heavier in theme, will be too advanced for some children and will require some screening and skipping. Some families may in fact choose to reserve Volume IV for high school as a world history credit. Whenever you use Volume IV, parents and teachers can decide when to proceed and when to pull back on some of the more gruesome aspects of modern history. And for those who will have younger ones sitting in with older siblings (as is common in homeschooling), there are Younger and Middle Activities to keep students involved on an age appropriate level. As in all matters of parenting and teaching, please use discretion based on the needs and abilities of your students!
