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. Journey through the Bible adds in-depth information. Unwrapping the Pharaohs and The New Answers Book include archeological 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.

My daughter is finishing her second month with the 9th grade curriculum and LOVES it! We are absolutely thrilled with it and when an MFW mom who's son is in the 8th grade recently asked me how we liked the high school curriculum, I was able to give her a glowing report.
