Ancient History and Literature teacher's manual

Ancient History and Literature is a one-year curriculum that integrates history, English, and Bible (3 full-year credits).

Ancient History and Literature lesson plans are written to the student for parent-guided independent work. On Fridays, the student and parent have a conference to discuss the week's topics and review completed work. There are 36 weeks of lessons, five days a week, with a somewhat lighter schedule on most Fridays. Parents assign grades based on informal discussions and daily written questions, vocabulary quizzes in the literature program, and essays for English and history. There are no formal tests for history, Bible, or literature. You will need to add science, math, and electives such as foreign language.

Bible and History

  • Read through the entire Old Testament, applying its truths to your life with insightful questions from Taking the Old Testament Challenge. Parents, especially fathers, are encouraged to purchase their own copy of this book and complete the study to help in guiding a weekly discussion with their child, as well as for developing personal spiritual growth. The Baker Illustrated Guide to the Bible adds in-depth information. Unwrapping the Pharaohs and The New Answers Book include archaeological discoveries and apologetics related to the Bible and history being studied.
  • Study history from Creation through the time of the Greeks. Assignments includes reading with comprehension questions, map work, and in-depth information about Creation and early man. Students also create a detailed timeline book. The Old Testament readings are a central focus of the history lessons and are integrated chronologically with the other history studies.
  • Participate in service projects chosen and/or developed by the student and the parent-teacher.

English

  • Develop composition skills with comprehensive lessons for writing essays.
  • Enjoy and analyze (from a Christian perspective) literature written during or about the ancient period: the Bible, The Epic of Gilgamesh(condensed version), The Cat of Bubastes, Bulfinch's Greek and Roman Mythology, The Iliad, and The Odyssey. Vocabulary, grammar and comprehension and critical thinking questions included.

Upgrade

If you own an older edition of Ancient History & Literature, consider exchanging it for the current edition. The core of the program has not changed, but some books have been revised or replaced.

  • In 2014, Exploring World History (Notgrass) was revised. We highly recommend the new version, which is much more student-friendly due to many new color illustrations. The text has only minor changes, but In Their Words (included in the set) was greatly expanded.
  • Also in 2014, The Student Bible Atlas replaced Historical Atlas of the World. New map activities were written in the Daily Lesson Plans, and student maps were added to the appendix. World History Map Activities was no longer needed, so it was removed from the package.

You may exchange your Ancient History & Literature Daily Lesson Plans for the current edition for $58. Please call our office at 573-202-2000 for instructions.

Robert W. Watson

ISBN: 9781619990791

The Epic of Gilgamesh: A Poetic Version retells the ancient story of how King Gilgamesh changes from a tyrant to a man capable of compassion and genuine love.

This journey begins with a friendship with a beast-like man known as Enkidu. Gilgamesh and Enkidu complement each other, filling in the missing humanity the other lacks. The two men share many adventures until Enkidu is mortally wounded. Now Gilgamesh must bare the sorrow of the death of his friend. Yet he refuses to accept the finality of death and decides to search for the source of eternal life.

His search for eternal life leads Gilgamesh to strange lands as he meets some very interesting people. The wise Utnapishtim offers his version of the Biblical flood and provides Gilgamesh the key to everlasting life.

One of the earliest examples of literature, The Epic of Gilgamesh speaks to the soul about human conditions and the desire to have purpose in life. This edition was written primarily for younger students, who have been generally excluded from those who study this epic tale.

Thomas Bulfinch

ISBN: 9780486411071

First published in 1855, Bulfinch's Mythology has introduced generations of readers to the great myths of Greece and Rome, as well as time-honored legends of Norse mythology, medieval and chivalric tales, Oriental fables, and more. Readers have long admired Bulfinch's versions for the skill with which he wove various versions of a tale into a coherent whole, the vigor of his storytelling, and his abundant cross-references to poetry and painting, demonstrating the relationship of literature and art.

Now The Age of Fable, the first section of the Mythology, is available in this inexpensive, highly readable edition. Drawing on the works of Homer, Ovid, Virgil, and other classical authors, as well as an immense trove of stories about the Norse gods and heroes, The Age of Fable offers lively retellings of the myths of the Greek and Roman gods: Venus and Adonis, Jupiter and Juno, Daphne and Apollo, and many others. Also here are the love story of Cupid and Psyche; the legend of Jason and the Golden Fleece; stories of the Trojan War and the epic journeys of Ulysses and Aeneas; tales of the heavenly abode of Valhalla and the deeds of Thor; and much more.

The myths and legends so vividly retold in this volume underlie much of the art, literature, and culture of Western civilization. As Bulfinch put it, "Without a knowledge of mythology, much of the elegant literature of our own language cannot be understood and appreciated . . . ." With this inexpensive edition of The Age of Fable, readers can immerse themselves in these seminal myths, increasing their appreciation and understanding of Western culture, while enjoying the myths purely as the great stories they are.

G.A. Henty

ISBN: 97804864232630

A Tale Of Ancient Egypt

Enslaved by a conquering army, the young prince Amuba finds friendship in the house of an Egyptian high priest, where he acts as a companion to the priest's son, Chebron. The entire household plunges into peril when Chebron accidentally kills a cat-and not just any cat, but the cat designated as the sacred cat of the great temple at Bubastes. A riot ensues, and the boys must flee, embarking on a long and hazardous journey to Amuba's homeland of Rebu.

Set in 1250 B.C., the time of Moses, this thrilling adventure story offers an evocative look at the ancient Egyptian world. Skillfully interwoven in the narrative thread are fascinating, accurate details about Egyptian religion and geography, the methods by which the Nile was used for irrigation, and the ways the Egyptians made war and were prepared for burial.

First published in 1888, The Cat of Bubastes is one among the many historical novels for young readers by George Alfred Henty. A storyteller who specialized in blending authentic historical facts with exciting fictional characters, Henty produced more than 140 books and achieved a reputation as "The Prince of Storytellers." Immensely popular and widely used in schools for many years, Henty's novels continue to fire young imaginations with their spirited tales of adventure amid exciting historical eras.

Catherine Swift

ISBN: 9781556611506

Eric Liddell, hero of the film Chariots of Fire, risked becoming a national disgrace at the 1924 Paris Olympics when he refused to run on a Sunday. Disqualifying himself from the finals, Britain's hope of a medal was sacrificed as well. But the thinly veiled criticism in the press turned to sensational acclaim when Eric entered - and won - a race for which he was completely untrained, finishing a full five meters ahead of the favorite.

He was a celebrity, but the faith which had inspired his courageous stand stirred in him again, and at the height of his fame he announced that he was leaving athletics to return as a missionary to the land of his birth, China. This story of "God's Athlete" makes for inspiring reading.

Taking the Old Testament Challenge is an integral part of Old Testament Challenge, a dynamic program for churches. This individual reading guide brings the Old Testament up close and personal as each participant takes a life-transforming journey through the first two-thirds of the Bible. The truths of Scripture will enter deep into hearts and lives-with applications that turn lessons into lifestyles and principles into practice.

If you ever . . .

  • wondered what's in the Bible Jesus studied
  • promised yourself, "One of these days, I'm going to get serious about reading the whole Old Testament"
  • wanted a personal "guide" to lead you through unfamiliar territory in the Old Testament

. . . then this book is for you!

In less than a year, you can travel through the entire Old Testament from Genesis to Malachi. These daily readings, comments, and questions will deepen your walk with God and heighten your knowledge of his Word. But this book is far more than a simple reading program. It will lead you to a devotional experience with God.

Discover why Jesus was so passionate about the Old Testament and quoted from it so frequently. As you open this reading guide and your Bible, you'll see why the same ancient wisdom that Jesus treasured is just what you need for your life today.

In The Purpose Driven Life you'll find the answers to three of life's most important questions:

  • The Question of Existence: Why am I alive?
  • The Question of Significance: Does my life matter?
  • The Question of Purpose: What on earth am I here for?

Living out the purpose you were created for moves you beyond survival or success to a life of significance - the life you were meant to live.

You will discover the five benefits of knowing your purpose:

  1. It will explain the meaning of your life.
  2. It will simplify your life.
  3. It will focus your life.
  4. It will increase your motivation.
  5. It will prepare you for eternity.

The Purpose Driven Life is designed to be read in 42 short chapters that will inspire you to stop and realize how God uniquely designed you for a purpose only you can fulfill. It also includes links to 3-minute video introductions to each chapter and a 30 to 40-minute audio Bible study message for each chapter. There are also appendixes including questions for further study and additional resources.

Before you were born, God already planned your life. God longs for you to discover the life he created you to live - here on earth, and forever in eternity. Let The Purpose Driven Life show you how.
