    What a story of passion. Young Gutenberg's love of books and reading was a hard thing in the days when books were all copied out by hand. It was an agonizing wait sometimes, and Gutenberg's dream was to find some way of speeding up the making of books. We remember him as the man who invented both moveable type and the printing press, but we hear very little of the struggles it took to bring that to fruition. This book uses simple language to tell this rollercoaster of a story. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    ACT prep – comprehensive and thorough – without the frantic feel. That about sums it up! This course offers a change of pace – and a change of focus – from the typical prep courses. Yes, it still covers vocabulary. Yes, it still provides test-taking strategies. Yes, it still provides detailed review of all subject areas: English, math, reading, writing, and science. But it also provides a call to prayer and devotional preparation that will cause your student to remember to put first things first.

    If you’ve ever wondered about the differences between the ACT and the SAT, you’ll find a clear analysis of each and suggestions for how best to prepare for each. In the introductory ACT test overview, the author covers these topics as well as provides information on how scores are used, average scores for certain universities, as well as suggestions for two essential habits to develop.

    Designed to be used over a ten week period, the course is comprised of fifty daily lessons. Lessons will probably take 1-2 hours to complete so be sure to factor that into your planning. Lesson format is consistent. Starting with a scripture verse, prayer points, and a devotional passage (often derived from classic books), then progressing to individual sections for Vocabulary (Greek/Latin roots or from classic literature), math (review and practice problems), reading (short passages with questions), English (editing and analysis), writing (analysis), and science (sample questions). Test-taking info and strategies are also part of each lesson. Although this format does not vary, the emphasis does vary some with each lesson – one day more time will be spent on science; another day, more on writing, etc. Both end-notes and a complete answer key are included in the back.

    If you’re an appendix-lover, then you’ll be pleased with what’s provided here. First is a brief tutorial on preparing vocabulary cards followed by an extensive reading list grouped by high school grade level. Models for reading and devotional journals as well as lists of Greek and Latin morphemes complete the appendices.

    Compared to other ACT test prep courses, there are two obvious differences with this course. First of all, there is a decided emphasis on the spiritual development and focus of the student. Secondly, test sections (i.e. English, math, etc.) are studied side-by-side rather than as a concentrated focus for a period of time before going on to the next section. Both of these contribute to the sense that test prep is really an opportunity to develop overall maturing in the student. 332 pgs, pb. Janice

    Before studying history in depth in TRISMS for the high school level, you can take a one or two-year tour of the entire scope of world history in upper elementary or middle school. History's Masterminds covers world history up to the year 2010 in a similar format as the high school TRISMS, though there are some differences. In the high school level, more time is spent on each period in history, and students spend more time analyzing each civilization in depth, including the art, music, architecture, and literature of each culture. In History's Masterminds, the emphasis is on chronological developments throughout history, including new inventions, geographical explorations, and science discoveries. In fact, students will be compiling information on these three topics into a course book throughout the program. Children will also read and research their way through history via historical fiction, biographies, and other resource books. History, geography, writing, language, literature, and science are all covered through this program. Math history is covered, but math itself is not; so you will need to supplement with a complete math curriculum (Saxon Math is recommended). The set is composed of a teacher's manual, student book, and a loose-leaf pack of student worksheets, research questionnaires, quizzes, and quarterly tests. The teacher's manual contains all of the lessons, assignments, teaching information, reading lists, and answer keys while the other two packs contain the forms and worksheets the student will need to complete the ssignments.

    The author recommends completing this course over a 2-year period. There are 38 weeks of lessons included, and each week's activities are listed on a lesson plan grid, similar to what is used in the upper-level TRISMS books but with a few differences. The assignments are divided between science, inventions, explorers, and language. A separate grid for each week lists recommended historical fiction, biographies and resource books while major historical events, suggested topics for research, and math history developments are also included. Each weekly lesson focuses on a different chronological span of time and covers all of these topics during that time period. For each week, students will be reading historical fiction and other books and completing questionnaires for scientists, inventions, and explorers. Questionnaires include a series of questions about the topic that the student answers through researching the topic, using the library, and other available resources. Inventions questionnaires also ask the student to draw and/or diagram the invention, while Explorers questionnaires ask the student to mark the explorer's journey on a map and create a map key. The reading lists in the teacher's guide offer suggestions for resources, organized by lesson, which may help when researching. There are separate science assignments for most weeks, which include experiments and research projects. Language assignments are more extensive and incorporate a wide variety of topics including poetry, book reports, letter writing, reports, public speaking, word roots, grammar, outlining, interviewing, bibliographies, and much more. Because the emphasis is on exploring history in a very chronological way, creating a timeline is essential to the course. Famous inventors, scientists, explorers, other major historical figures and events will all be added to the timeline as they are studied each week. Quizzes and tests are also included for reinforcement; quizzes are given every three lessons while tests are given four times throughout the year.

    Overall, this course is not only a great way to try the TRISMS approach, but it offers great practice in researching and a terrific scope of our entire history as well. Its open-ended approach makes it useable with students of different grades, and it would be easy (and fun!) to use with multiple children. Because it is so heavily book and research-based, this would be a good fit for you especially if you have pretty easy access to a library and if your students are fairly motivated and independent. – Jess
