    A favorite topic at our house, with at least two resident horse-lovers, and one difficult Arabian (Megan's pride and joy). Beginning in the 1700's with the Godolphin Arabian, this course studies breeds and their histories, using Marguerite Henry books and the classics Black Stallion and Black Beauty (among others). Well-written lesson plans involve the student in a chronological study of horses and breeds, including horse anatomy, identification, sketching horses, charting blood lines, and Bible memory verses regarding the horse. This would be a one-year study if you complete two lessons per week. Resources below include some excellent literature and reference books.

    This excellent (but optional) companion to the Apologia Biology course provides a place to keep everything together - module notes and lab reports. The introductory information includes a rubric for grading experiments, grade recording charts, parent notes/student notes, and most importantly, a daily schedule (no need for separate lesson plans). The module notes provide a uniform format for completing chapter notes, the On Your Own and Study Guide questions, and an (optional) modular summary. The consistent format is only one of the reasons you might choose this notebook option. Full-color illustrations (ready for labeling) as well as full-color dissection photographs would be other reasons. 604 pgs. spiral-bound

    Linda Hobar, the author of this world history series, states in the beginning of this book, "I believe history is the story of God revealing Himself to mankind and that He did it most perfectly through the person of Jesus Christ…the "mystery" is the gospel of Jesus Christ." What a refreshing and different view from most world history curriculums! Those looking for a world history program that aligns the stories of mankind with the living story of God will truly appreciate this Bible-centered approach to the history of the world. Picking up where Volume 1 leaves off, this volume begins with the Pentecost and the first followers of Jesus (including Paul) around 29 A.D and chronologically continues through the early church and moves into the Middle Ages, covering the years through about 1456 A.D. The format of this book is very similar to that of the first volume; however, there are some small differences. Firstly, there are fewer lessons (84 as opposed to 108), but these lessons are slightly longer, offering more information on a given topic. Lessons generally take the form of real-life biographies, sharing the stories of men and women who changed the world while simultaneously showing the relationship between God and the world during that period. Another new feature is the bolding of key words to aid students in finding the information again later for activity or vocabulary purposes. As in the first book, this volume includes pretests to be given at the beginning of each week, end of the week reviews, memory card suggestions, bi-weekly quizzes, quarterly worksheets, and two semester tests. Memory cards are fact cards that students create for each lesson, capturing the main points and dates on an easy to review flashcard. The end of the week reviews continue to hold timeline and mapping exercises, providing students with helpful visuals of when important figures lived and where places studied are located. This volume also contains even more activities following each lesson than the first volume. This is simply to provide you with more choices, not to overwhelm you with feeling like you should do them all! These activities are generally categorized into younger, middle, and older student activities in order to accommodate the curriculum to a wider spread of grade levels, with the youngest comprised of many hands-on activities to help them experience history, middle activities a combination of hands-on exercises with research, and the older ideas centering on research, encouraging students to learn more and dig deeper into the people and lessons from history. The activities and memory cards, as well as the weekly and quarterly reviews and tests, are meant to ensure long-term retention of the key events and people throughout history, as opposed to the short term memory capacity we often hold history (and other subjects!) lessons in. The back of this hefty 700-page book contains the outline maps for the lessons, additional fun supplemental activities, suggestions of books and resources for further study of many of the topics, a chart of materials needed for the activities found in each lesson, and a full answer key. The fascinating journey across the continents continues as students discover who lived when and the way God worked His plan throughout this period of history. ~ Steph

    Apologia now offers video instruction DVDs for all upper-level courses. Author Sherri Seligson is your host for Biology as you work through the course. The lecture instruction closely follows the text, with lectures broken down by text section. Presented in a slideshow fashion, students will see information or illustrations and hear the author as she explains that particular concept. DVD also features some exciting footage from all over the world, with examples of the organisms being studied. Video presentations of every experiment from the textbook are also included. Although the video demonstrations do not replace actually doing the experiments, it is a very helpful resource for those who are a little less sure of what they are doing in their home laboratories. Module notes are available in PDF format at the beginning of each module and contain all math problems from the lectures. The student will print them and fill them out as they are discussed in the lecture. A suggestion for planning your lessons for a 10-day period is offered at the beginning of the first module. Please note that no books are included; this is the instructional DVD only.

    This book is the combined effort of two professional teachers, one at the high school level, the other college levels. Both believe that the Bible has a lot to say about the field of economics, so you'll find lots of scriptural references in the early sections of the book, and four scripture memory verses. This worktext is intended to be used over one semester.

    You can tell that the course was designed by instructors with an eye to making it easy to use for the teacher. A Student Course Syllabus makes planning simple, dividing the work into the 18 weeks. Grading is equally easy, as the book provides a schedule of point values per assignment and space to record each grade. Lessons were divided into 2 or 3 sections each. Text is short, usually 2 or 3 pages, followed by 3 to 5 review questions, with space to fill in the answers. Color graphics enhance the visual appeal of the book. Practical Application Activities,

    Imprimis

    Articles for Group Discussion, Oral History Projects, and Case Studies are interspersed here and there throughout the semester. 7 tests and quizzes are provided to use over the course of the semester, as well as a 2-part final exam.

    Because text is short in duration and limited to main points, you will find no deep discussions of economic theory here. This course could be used successfully at any high school grade level without concern that the concepts are over the student's head. 290 pgs, sc. ~ Bob

    This book should be on every homeschooler's desk (and I don't mean the bookshelf!). Rarely will you hear me be quite so emphatic, but this book is a treasure! Designed to be a companion to Teaching the Classics, a Socratic approach to teaching literature, and undoubtedly an amazing resource for those using that approach, it is also an incredible reference for anyone who wants flexibility in terms of teaching literature coupled with "just enough" structure.

    The authors identified 200 books for grades K-12 and then (in a wonderful spreadsheet format) annotated them with tons of information plot, conflict, theme, aids & devices, and alternate titles (other books that could be used). In short, it lists everything you need at your fingertips to supervise a comprehensive literary analysis of the book. As if that weren't enough, they further reworked that annotated information into six different curriculum models daily, weekly, monthly, six-week, quarterly, and seasonal. These different models mean that you can teach literature in whatever way you want. Want to focus on literature everyday? Want to conduct a short-term co-op course? Want to hit literature "hard" for a little while and then be done? This resource will help you plan and implement any of these scenarios.

    The usefulness doesn't end there, however. There are separate chapters on writing from literature, learning objectives by grade level, grading and assigning credits, and major historical periods in western literature. The writing from literature section gives a brief overview of writing assignments (what sort and how long) for the elementary, junior high, and senior high levels. On the other hand, the analytical essay is dissected very thoroughly and a helpful "tootsie-roll" diagram helps the student to see how the parts of the essay work together. Just as helpful is the model essay that illustrates the effective use of this diagram. The graded learning objectives for literature are quite specific and can be used as a scope and sequence or for developing lesson plans. I used high school literature texts as references when I wanted information about the history of literature, but to have that same information at my fingertips would have been a beautiful thing. 234 pgs. pb ~ Janice
