    This kit from Audio Memory has us singing along to 11 songs that teach over 100 dates and events from our nation's past. Lyrics tell of happenings from the first voyage of Columbus up to the Persian Gulf War. The accompanying 24 page booklet provides a printed version of the lyrics, along with drawings and photographs of the events. Music contains full orchestration and attempts to capture the spirit of the era -for instance, a Spanish style for Columbus and the explorers from Spain.

     This extensive collection of poems, drawn from the archives of Poetry magazine, feature works from many of the most famous poets of the twentieth century. This collection could well be entitled ‘A History of Twentieth-Century Poetry,’ so readers should expect to be exposed to a wide variety of poems, both traditional and unorthodox. Famous poets such as Yeats, Frost, and Eliot are included, as well as many less prominent writers. Many of the selections present themes or perspectives that are somewhat dark or brooding, and few are what might be termed uplifting or inspiring. It should be mentioned, however, that the poems in this anthology contain very little profanity or blasphemy. This resource is included within some of the Well Planned Gal curriculum’s Modern World and Geography sets. 488 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Ballads are somewhat of a lost art form, but historically, they were a way to pass on to future generations the events and details from history. From Sing ‘n Learn comes this musical approach to reinforce your American History study. Nine ballads (chapters) move through key elements of US history, from Roanoke/Jamestown, Revolutionary and Civil War, to the Transcontinental Railroad.

    Each chapter follows the same format. First, you’ll find the ballad printed in full (the audio is located in chronological order on the CD). Then the author expands on specific details highlighted in each song. The author clarifies that this is not a history textbook, but the elaboration contains a good amount of explanation. Each chapter ends with a set of Discussion Questions (no answers included). At the book’s end, each ballad is reprinted in full text and includes the melody line and chords.

    Black and white illustrations are included throughout. Some illustrations appear as though they’ve been photocopied and some are occasionally applied as a “watermark” behind text, making the text a little more challenging to read. Another minor negative is that in adding CDs, book references to song locations being on specific cassette tapes were not updated. However, songs are placed chronologically on each CD. One CD includes music and vocals; one contains instrumental only. This set could serve as a tool for your auditory learners and a simple way to remember key points of American history. 8 1/2” x 10 3/4”, 159 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Sara Jordan's series of language learning songs has been around for a while now (item #053347). This, however, is an enhanced version of Bilingual Beginners Spanish and uses the same songs as on that CD, but is expanded on. A nicely done workbook is included so you now have lessons to go with the songs. Students will work on oral skills (greetings, following instruction, singing, rolling R's), writing (made for beginner writers with dotted letters/words to trace), reading (simple words, word boxes, coloring activities, matching), grammar (questions, affirmative, negative, nouns, gender, articles, present tense verbs), vocabulary building (greetings, colors, numbers, home, time, food, family, body) and spelling (alphabetizing, capitalizing, Spanish accent marks). There are 12 lessons all together with answers in the back. For each lesson, there are cards for games and teaching activities: requires printing off cards from the publisher's website. Lessons are shown in both English and Spanish and have a group activity, the audio portion from the CD, and 2 or 4 writing activity pages. Since the CD models pronunciation, knowing how to speak Spanish isn't necessary. I think it would be helpful to have some prior exposure to aid your young learners' pronunciation. Reproducible for one classroom/homeschool. 63pp. ~ Sara

    The literature of a time period is always one of our best sources of information. This is especially true about a long ago time period like the medieval centuries. These are the stories that have withstood the test of time – and translation – and appeal. This anthology – edited by Rebecca Berg Manor (daughter of Beautiful Feet author, Rea Berg) – provides us with an excellent (and manageable) cross-section of literature that traces medieval culture from the beginnings of Christendom to the Age of Exploration. Selections, organized by type of literature, include excerpts from Augustine's Confessions (Early Christian), Deeds of Charlemagne (Romanesque) Battle of Brunanburh (Old English), Song of Roland (Arthurian), Song of the Creatures (Late Latin), Divine Comedy (Dante). Used as a Senior High resource for Beautiful Feet's Medieval History: A Literature Approach, this is a good reference/resource book for any high school world history course. ~ Janice

    Many Americans know little about their own country. When Newsweek conducted a citizenship test, 38% of Americans failed. Elected officials fared even worse, with 44% failing the same test. How should we view these statistics? I found two quotes in the book that speak to the expediency of its message: Ronald Reagan – "If we forget what we did, we won't know who we are…" and Newsweek – "The country's future is imperiled by our ignorance." Challenge yourself to break this trend in our country today. Everything you need to know about American basics is here in this book: historical timelines, presidents, maps, founding documents, how the government works, the nature of America, American heroes, great speeches, and poems and songs. The book also includes the citizenship test – so at the end of the book you can make sure you do actually know and love your country! 404 pgs, pb. – Zach

    From the author of Latin Centered Curriculum (Memoria Press), this comprehensive K-12 resource for memorization, copywork, and dictation provides a vast array of memorization material in all academic areas, as well as Latin and Greek. Weighing in at a hefty 450 plus pages, this book provides you ample choices for memory work, and has been designed for use with any classical curriculum or simply as a handy reference for home or school. At first glance, the sheer size of this book appears to be overwhelming. However, the author reminds us this book has been created to provide 13 years worth of memorization options and we simply integrate what we feel is the best selection.

    Beginning with the importance of memorizing, this detailed book takes you through the steps of how to memorize and includes general principles to make memory work easier; you are then set free to select memorization selections from a vast array of subject areas. Read on for more details! The Latin chapter is divided into six parts: Grammar and Vocabulary; Proverbs; Poetry and Prose; Scripture; Prayers; and Hymns and Carols. The first three sections contain mostly secular material, while the last three are religious. The Greek chapter is divided into five sections: Grammar and Vocabulary; Proverbs; Poetry and Prose; Scripture; and Prayers and Hymns. These selections are drawn from both classical and ecclesiastical Greek, and the author has also included some background information on Easter Christian traditions. Translations are provided throughout. The Arithmetic and Mathematics chapter includes an extensive resource selection, including (but not limited to): addition/subtraction fact families, properties and orders, prime numbers, multiplication table, Euclid's Definitions and Common Notions, and the Pythagorean Theorem. The Grammar and Composition chapter is designed to support the study of classical languages and to reinforce principles taught in your individual writing program. It includes grammar rhymes, grammar rules, and 100 commonly misspelled words. The Literature chapter contains five sections: Literary facts and lists; Sayings, Proverbs, and Famous Quotations, Teaching Rhymes, Poetry and dramatic speeches from Shakespeare's plays. The Religion chapter contains six sections: Scripture, Prayers, Catechism, Poetry, Hymns and Carols. Using the King James Version of the Bible, the religious selections include material drawn from the Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant traditions. The Geography chapter contains a large number of lists from both a World and US Geography perspective. The World History chapter covers events and personalities from around the globe, with the emphasis on those topics of enduring importance. Please note: dating encompasses an old earth perspective, dating back to 35,000 BC. The United States History and Civics chapter stresses key dates in American history, as well as the founding documents of our nation. Patriotic songs, verse and oratory are also included. The Natural Sciences chapter brings together lists and mnemonics for basic information in the natural sciences and is written primarily for elementary and middle school. It is best if the child memorizes material in this chapter, as it is encountered in their course of studies in the science curriculum of your choice. Extensive reference charts are found at the end of the book. These are meant for quick reference in Latin and Greek and are not meant to replace a Latin or Greek curriculum. They are, however, a good basis for Latin and Greek recitation.

    As you can see, this extensive resource book provides ample opportunities for memorization success. I was impressed with the extensive selection in each academic area, and believe this truly will be a valuable resource for families who desire to incorporate memorization from the classical perspective. 450 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
