Category Description

On occasion you might hear someone define history as the struggle between the haves and the have-nots. As Christians living in a secular society, it is often easy to imbibe false ideas. This history curriculum won’t let you have that kind of false idea for long. Instead, you will come to understand the true (i.e. Biblical) definition of history. For example, in your study of Ancient Rome, you will see how the beliefs which nations/individuals hold about God and man can affect the course of history, culture, government etc. This history curriculum is not dependant on specific books since the goal is not to guide students through books, but to guide them through history. Many, many books are recommended since the guide provides very little text (just basic summaries); however, the beauty is that students can pick whichever ones appeal to them or are readily available. No more searching for those impossible to find required readers! As you work your way through the books, you will be challenged to think about some things, to research others, and complete ThinkWrite sections at the back of the book. These sections are designed for students in grades 5-12. Responses to the ThinkWrite sections can be done in a variety of ways including skits, diaries, news reports, models, projects, drawings, and essays.

A new study in this series combines Creation and the Old Testament with the study of Ancients and Egypt. This book follows the same format as the other studies in this series allowing you to choose the reading and resources. The Bible is the ultimate authority on history, but the author suggests some other spines that may be referenced throughout the study – Child’s Story Bibleby Catherine Vos, Genesis: A commentary for Childrenby Nancy Ganz, Story of the Ancient World by C. Miller & H.A. Guerber, Book of the Ancient Worldby Dorothy Mills, Streams of Civilization Vol. 1, Genesis: Finding Our Roots by Ruth Beechick, and Greenleaf Guide to the Old Testament. These books aren’t required, but are helpful resources if you want to read more on the topics. May your study of history become a study of His Story. ~ Genevieve / Donna



Perhaps you’ve tried inserting good books into your study of history but hit-or-miss attempts brought uncomfortable feelings of insecurity. Author Michelle Miller takes the hit-or-miss out of history. Her guides enable home teachers to be consistent, chronological, and thorough.

This veteran homeschool mom and children’s librarian lists oodles of good books (and some key films.) The guide took my notice because I observed in our homeschool that by spreading a feast of good books before my children history was, and remained, a fascinating subject to them. Biography, historical fiction, picture books, etc. tell the tales textbooks have no room for and illuminate facets of history that more fully play out cause and effect.

Our choices are plentiful. But Michelle Miller adamantly advises that we are NOT to read them all.

Each book is marked with a reading level. This enables moms to combine children of different ages into a study of the same time period. We’ve always enjoyed using a mix of reading levels in our homeschool. For instance, I’ve learned not to undervalue picture books. Even a 32-page picture book, which zeros-in on a historical character or event, can offer us some interesting or colorful detail. For example, Paul Revere’s Ride – a poem by Longfellow, was put in picture book form for all ages. It is a good one for memorization.

Mrs. Miller’s guide is more than a book list. Her commentary introduces each new topic and connects important events. It is Christian and politically conservative. Her “ThinkWrite” exercises invite the learner to be discerning and require thinking upon higher things (ideas and principles). She suggests the method of narration be employed with what is read. I second the motion. We may wish to put on skits, make timelines, publish a newsletter, and eat historical food. Or, we may simply partake of the feast of books and talk about them.
