    This program can be used for Levels A, B or C. 30 lessons are included in a spiral-bound book with ready-made lesson plans, Scripture used as a subject for writing, and multi-level checklists. Each lesson provides a specific objective, at least two translations of Scripture, an assignment with checklists, and a space for the final copy to be written or pasted into the book, which creates a portfolio of the year's work. Checklists are provided for the three different levels. Sample compositions are plentiful, as well as vocabulary development and review exercises to strengthen understanding of stylistic techniques. The story of Noah forms the core of the first two units. Unit 3 focuses on sequencing and sources include the miracle at Cana, the parable of the talents, the story of Jonah, the Good Samaritan, and the Prodigal Son. Unit 4 lessons have students read and summarize Paul on Charity, Jesus' Miracles, Christ's Last Words, along with stylistic exercises taken from Psalms. Custom pictures have been created for Unit 5 lessons (Esther, Daniel, Nativity, Paul's conversion), and Unit 6 uses the synoptic gospels to teach multiple reference summarizing. With Unit 7, a few creative writing opportunities are suggested, and Unit 8 continues the five paragraph model with essays on Job's suffering, Christ's condemnation by Pilate, and the duties of a Christian. Unit 9 presents an analysis of the books of Ruth and Jonah, as well as the story of David and Goliath.

Lesson material includes economic principles and theory, business practices, and entrepreneurialism with both U.S. and International scenarios. Teacher and student material is in one book. ~ Janice

    With the word "progymnasmata" showing up here and there, homeschoolers are becoming familiar with this collection of rhetorical exercises that has endured with success within the Western Tradition. This was the classical Greek method of building up the student's reasoning and articulation skills through a series of interrelated, rhetorical exercises. Learning to write and speak more persuasively is a worthwhile investment of time and energy for the advanced student who already has a firm grasp of grammar. This series of 31 lessons is a teacher-oriented collection of lessons that the teacher can use to help teach rhetoric. It's not a workbook intended to teach the student rhetoric. A model check sheet is provided to help with grading. Please note there is Christian content. ~ Janice

    What do crows, peacocks, and bird nest soup have in common? They're just a few of the fun and fascinating things that your student will WANT to write about. Within its 24 lessons (a year's worth) it covers TWSS Units 1-7 (taking notes, summarizing narrative stories, writing from pictures, mini-research report, and creative writing) and several stylististic elements. Teacher prep is non-existent – you only need to read through the lessons with your student and be prepared to be "wowed" by their writing (and, of course, do a little evaluating). Although your student will want to make a final portfolio copy of their writing assignments, all the preliminary work – outlines, brainstorming charts, along with checklists – are provided in the consumable, 159-page spiral-bound text. Appendices include: banned words & prepositions and substitutes, -ly words. The purchaser may download an optional accompanying teacher e-book from the publisher's website. ~ Janice

    Fables, Myths, and Fairy Tales by Maria Gerber is enjoyable from start to finish. This course covers TWSS units 1-7 with students learning (in 27 lessons) how to take notes, summarize narrative stories, summarize references, write from pictures and compose their own fables, myths and fairy tales. This program also includes three public speaking opportunities – telling stories from key word outlines. This volume is primarily a student book, with information provided inside to download a free accompanying teacher's manual at iew.com. Student pages can be reproduced for a family or classroom. ~ Janice

    It seems I'm part of a growing number of people who prefer to purchase a hardcopy book rather than rely on downloading and printing. If you're with me, you'll be glad to know that IEW has started publishing this notebook (long available as a free download to those who have purchased their courses). Used as a resource for all of their theme-based writing lessons, it's also a good reference for any student using the IEW method of writing. Included are reference pages for stylistic techniques, models of structure, strong verbs, -ly words, quality adjectives, five senses/emotions, decorations, transitional words/phrases, grammar rules, and charts/checklists. Spiral-bound with updated layout for 2016. ~ Janice

    We looked at several different alternatives before selecting this volume as a basic world history reference book. As with any secular product, we contend with the "dating" problems (the book dates the beginning of history at 40,000 B.C.), and evolutionary references. However, the book is an excellent reference with many outstanding features:

    • It's all in one book (491 pgs) making it a handy reference for studies of any and all time periods.
    • The paper is nice and thick, designed to tolerate years of "wear and tear".
    • Chronologically-arranged and cross- referenced articles.
    • Over 2000 colorful illustrations, including photographs and charts as well as annotated maps.
    • A handy reference section at the back of the book that has lists of national leaders throughout history; wars; and explorations/discoveries.
    • The comprehensive indexing makes it easy to quickly find the information or related articles you need.

    This book replaced the old Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World a number of years ago. Although similar, there are some differences in this new book. Curriculums that refer to the original book may not correspond exactly to the replacement version. We think this will be a volume you will use again and again, not just for world history studies, but for unit studies of all kinds.

    In typical, fascinating Usborne style, this updated volume takes readers on a whirlwind tour of 10,000 years of history, from the first farmers to the fall of the Roman Empire. Unlike many other books that focus on this time period, the focus is not only on the Greeks and Romans, but early civilizations from around the world are also represented, including the Hittites, Canaanites, the Hebrew kingdoms, Assyrians, Persians, the early Chinese, early Arab kingdoms, early North Americans, the people of ancient Peru, the Olmecs, the Celts, early African kingdoms, and many more. The focus is more on daily life than events of the time, and examples of housing, architecture, art, weapons, tombs, agriculture, and more are represented for each time period. Visual types will enjoy the cut-away views of structures so they can "see inside" houses and tombs of each civilization. A map and a list of important dates are also included for each civilization. Most pages also include a link to check out a related website that gives readers an opportunity to do things like hear how a Hittite would have said "hello" or play a game of Senet. An excellent resource for any study of ancient history. 96 pgs, pb. – Jess

    An excellent biography of this Macedonian Greek Queen of Egypt. Cleopatra was one of the last of the Ptolemies, a royal line descended from a general of Alexander the Great. Notable for her determination, intelligence, and beauty, she almost succeeded in her goal of unifying the world under her rule. This captivating account by Diane Stanley follows her tumultuous life from the beginning of her rule at age 18 to her death in defeat at age 39. It also explains much about the ambitions of Julius Caesar as well as the downfall of Mark Antony - two men totally devoted to this strong-willed queen.

    A study of Hebrew history from 2000 to 430 B.C., beginning with Abram being called out of Ur. Over 80 activities and projects accompany the informational text from Growing Up in Ur and building ziggurats to Returning to Jerusalem and calculating tithes. Children construct salt-dough maps, make musical instruments, locust biscuits, and outfits to wear, mix up and bake a batch of unleavened bread, make an olive-oil lamp, and much, much more as they follow Biblical history From Abraham to Nehemiah. Projects and activities are well-coordinated with the text, which is amazingly good. The author has done an excellent job of combining Bible history with culture and customs. All you may want to add is actual Scripture reading for a great early history study.

      I saw you cringe! Why offer a book on rats and their interactions with people and society? My response? Children (especially boys perhaps!) will eagerly devour this informative and lively overview of rat history! Written by acclaimed children’s historian and author, Albert Marrin, this riveting tale weaves together science, history, and folklore leading readers to a newly found appreciation of the repulsive rodent. Learn how rats are considered fast learners, make loyal pets, are key to medical breakthroughs and have been served as a delicacy on dinner plates. You will also learn how attempts to eradicate them are often unsuccessful and in ancient times rats stood trial for their crimes in courts of law. Excellent family read aloud or to stimulate the curiosity of a reluctant reader. 98 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne

      My children loved to get lost in a good encyclopedia. Maybe that sounds odd today, but I am still a firm believer in having accessible, quality books available for children to read when curiosity peaks. Lavishly illustrated and divided into two parts, Physical and Life Science, this resource is jam packed with information, fun facts, hands-on activities and intermingled science related jokes. The introductory section explains what science is, how scientists work and the scientific theory before describing the difference between physical and life science and going deeper into respective areas. Evolutionary content.

      Physical science is separated into four sections: matter, forces and machines, energy, and electronics. Subtopics are presented in a 2-page spread that includes photographs and colorful graphics, clearly explained textual information, historical or unique fun facts, activities or jokes. A sampling of topics includes chemistry basics, organic chemistry, noble gases, gravity, friction, radio waves, satellites, nuclear power, sound waves and more.

      Life Science is separated into four sections: the universe, life on earth, human body and planet earth. Subtopics are presented similarly to the physical science section. A sampling of topics includes the big bang, solar system, classification of living things, microbes, reptiles, ancient medicine, genes, reproduction and growth, volcanoes, earthquakes, the earth’s age, rocks and minerals, biomes conservationism, and more. Includes websites, books and film recommendations, a glossary, and index. An excellent resource for your home or school library. 303 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

       To fully understand the future of mankind, we must examine our heritage. Or as one author has written, “Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.” As one who had limited Western Civilization education, this introduction is one of the most straight forward and readable resources I have reviewed.

      Beginning with a foundational understanding of the definition of civilization, the book is divided into four sections. In the first, The Mediterranean World, we examine the need for transportation, diversity and plunder; the economic, religious, and political life of early civilizations; early empires (Assyrians, Babylon, Persian); Ancient Greece; the Roman Empire and Christianity. Section 2: The Middle Ages examines the fall of Rome, rise of Islam and Western Europe; Feudalism; the spread of Christianity and the Roman Catholic Church, the Crusades; scholasticism of Thomas Aquinas and others; and the rise and growth of European cities: England, France and Spain. Section 3: The Early Modern Era surveys the Renaissance; the Protestant Reformation; the Advancement of Science; and exploration and trade. The final Section analyzes the ongoing battle between traditional Judeo-Christian faith and the new faith in naturalism. From the battle for human minds and hearts, he describes the momentous battle for political control with a historical look at the political catastrophes of Romanticism, from Rousseau to Marx to Hitler. Finally, he examines the battle for economic control from the Industrial Revolution to Socialist Mentality.

      The author takes seriously his predefined task, “to describe the institutions, politics, commerce, religion, and arts and sciences of past civilizations in an effort to discern the values, beliefs, and ideas which served to shape those societies” prior to examining the commonly held, yet erroneous viewpoints that contributed to the collapse of historic civilizations. The detailed index and chapter study questions (without answers) make this a valuable resource for teens and parents alike. 415pgs, HC. ~ Deanne

     Students of ancient history will profit from this comprehensive study of the Roman Empire. Unlike many histories written on the culture and civilization of ancient Rome, this volume by Greg Woolf truly seeks to give readers an understanding of Rome as an empire. The main focus of the text, therefore, is on the founding, development, and eventual decline of the empire of Rome. By the time students finish this volume, they discover both the triumph and tragedy that was ancient Rome. This book also includes a few helpful maps, and a small number of black-and-white photos. 300 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

      Drawn from the journals or notebooks of the well-known scientist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci, this book provides five easy-to-assemble models of his most fascinating inventions. Complete instructions are provided with each model, along with a wealth of intricate drawings and relevant observations that pertain to the particular invention. While it is true that the colorful paper models in this book are relatively easy to assemble, it is also fair to say that they are not designed to be built by very young children. The quality of the drawings and textual observations within this publication are consistently excellent, and the models are well-organized and impressive. Finished models measure approximately 7”x7”. Book measures 11” x 11”. ~ Mike
