BiblioPlan: Medieval History
Picking up where Volume 1 leaves off, BiblioPlan Medieval does some review and then delves into the fall of the Roman Empire. Year Two follows the previous format. There is one hardcover Remember the Days textbook for grades K-7, and two soft-cover Companion textbooks for grades 8-12. The 6-Units (34 weeks) of study will take your students on a historical journey around the world. Since the scope of study now includes a world view, the geography component has expanded to cover the whole globe.
From the Fall of the Roman Empire to about year 1600, unit studies include Early Christianity and the Rise of Islam, Europe and the Crusades, Asia, Exploration of the New World, the Renaissance and the Reformation, and the Elizabethan Era. Study is twofold: World History and Church History. A big focus is on Britain and France. World History will also study the Vikings, the Magna Carta, the Middle East, medieval India, the Ottoman Empire, art, science, Columbus, and the Tudor family. Within Church History learn about the first Christian martyrs to the first Christian emperor, Constantine. Study how the Church used and abused their power which led to some of the greatest Church schisms in history. You will study Christian creeds, councils, the Crusades, the Inquisition, key individuals, and the Reformation.
The Family Guide will take you step-by-step through text readings from either one of the textbooks. Further literature, audio, videos, maps, and activities are all found in individual spiral-bound books. Material found within each spiral-bound book may be reproduced for family needs. Select exactly what you want to cover with the program for each student (K-12) while studying Medieval History together.
