Product Description:

This is the third Genevieve Foster title put back into print by Beautiful Feet. It covers the period of the Renaissance and Reformation - a period of enlightenment, change, discovery and exploration that left a tremendous impact on the world. The volume covers the times of Christopher Columbus, Leonardo da Vinci, Queen Isabella, Richard II, Johann Gutenberg, Ferdinand (son of Columbus), Emperor Charles V, Erasmus, and Martin Luther. Mrs. Foster's books are unique in their horizontal approach to history. She presents history as a series of lively narratives which focus on the interactions of people and the events of the period, putting them in context and making the reading interesting and memorable. The 406-pages include illustrations, timelines, maps, and charts.

From 500 A.D. to 1530 A.D., this literature approach to history takes students through the medieval period via some of the best classic and historic literature available. Students read works by classic authors such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Sir Walter Scott. They learn about heroic figures of the time like Wycliffe, Tyndale, Joan of Arc, Luther, Saladin and more. This one-year course has been revised and the publishers have broken the study into two guides; one for intermediate/junior high grades, and one for high school. The guides are now full-color. The Intermediate/Junior High guide features 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments, mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft suggestions, vocabulary lists and more.




Category Description for Beautiful Feet History & Geography:

The Guides provide book lists, chapter readings, discussion and research questions, background information, website links, answer keys, and more.

Recommended Timelines are available individually or in a set of two. Timelines are cardstock and include the figures referenced in the study.

My son really likes these books. They are more of a narrative for history instead of a text book. And they talk about what is going on all over the world during this time period.

Is this sufficient for a full year of history, or would several of her books need to be combined?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It might depend on the grade you are teaching. I bought an entire Medieval History curriculum and this was one of maybe 12 books included for my high schooler.
