There are so many unit studies and curriculums that culminate in the creation of a dedicated notebook which contains all of the work and information the child has learned about the topic. If you are looking for something better adapted to this process than the ol' binder and notebook paper combo, you will definitely want to check out the History Portfolios. Based on the same concept as a blank timeline, this series offers you actual history portfolios which hold many blank maps, spaces, and lined paragraphs for you to fill out for each time period. The books are divided chronologically over four time periods that align well with classically-based programs: Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance and Modern History. For example, the medieval book provides separate sections for the Christians, the West Roman Empire, the Celtic Tribes, the Germanic Tribes, the Building of Kingdoms (Frankish, England, France, and Germany), the East Roman Empire/Byzantium, and the World. Each section contains blank maps and empty spaces for copywork, drawings, reports, narrations, lists and more. A detailed table of contents at the beginning shows you what features are included for each time period, making it easier to plan with your history program (you may want to note that the appendix material and resource suggestions previously found in the History Portfolios are now found in the Teacher Guides for each time period). The end of the book provides a unique timeline, which is intended to be taken out of the book, attached sheet-to-sheet, and used to record events and important people that are studied. This series provides a worthy foundation for personalized, thorough history portfolios.
