Exploring the History of Medicine
An interesting look at the field of medicine from Hippocrates on. The book covers major developments throughout the ages along with the pioneers who authored them. Aspiring doctors, nurses or others leaning toward a medical profession will appreciate this survey.
These softcover texts explore science topics from a Christian perspective and include review questions for assessment. Books are divided by topical chapter, each containing informative text, black-and-white illustrations and photos, and review questions. The text is engagingly written, weaving in stories of scientific discovery and famous scientists, instead of simply offering facts. While the visuals are black-and-white, they are detailed and clearly labeled. Review questions consist of true/false and multiple choice questions, along with a short list of questions students can use for further research, writing assignments, or be extended into projects. Answers to the short answer questions are found in the back along with a glossary and index. This series could form the core of an upper-elementary or middle school science program, or be used as topical supplements to study a topic in more detail. If using for a science program, I would recommend supplementing with more hands-on experiments, or extending the topics provided at the end of the chapter into additional assignments. 160 pgs each. - Jess
User-friendly, well-organized and academically sound, these science guides from Memoria Press are sure to please the science-loving child in your home. Courses consist of a teacher guide, a student guide and in some cases, a separate text. Optional resources are suggested for some courses.
Items in this section tend to be instructional frameworks, or unit studies with a "core" teaching resource supplemented with additional text and/or activity resources.
Memoria Press now offers complete Curriculum Manuals and grade-level curriculum packages for PK-10 using the classical methodology. Recitation is used in every level for memorization of basic facts, systematic phonics and good books are used for reading education, copywork is used for teaching Bible truths, and music and art are included for enrichment in the early (K-3) levels. Each Curriculum Manual contains complete lesson plans for a one-year course of study.
The Curriculum Manuals are well-formatted and easy to use. In the front of each book you will find a checklist of the materials needed at that level, an explanation of this curriculum, instructions for lesson implementation, a recommended schedule and blank schedule for your own planning purposes, and 33 weeks of detailed lesson plans. Lessons include assignments from the books used at each grade level, as well as activity suggestions. The appendices include a variety of material for that grade level, and may include: prayers, letter activities, recitation, memory verses, read-aloud book list, poetry list and selections, and a paintings/music list for kindergarten and first grade. These pages are reproducible for family or classroom use.
Although most of the guides have been available for several years, the curriculum was restructured in 2015, with many of the programs originally included in 3rd grade now with a slower pacing to span 3rd and 4th grade. Guides for grades 3 and up have been modified to reflect this change, while the lower-level guides have only had minor changes. If you are already midway into the program with the original guides, you can still continue in that track with the older guides, now titled Acclerated Classical Core Curriculum Manual. You can find these along with the complete list of curriculum resources used with them on our website.
We have complete grade-level resource packages, consumable packages for “refill,” new user packages for levels that reuse resources from a previous level, read-aloud packages for each level and science and enrichment packages for the early levels. Curriculum resources are also listed individually (see website for specific contents of consumables and read-aloud packages). Please note that several of the programs include First Form Latin and Classical Composition, which should be completed in order, regardless of what is in the grade level package.If you have a student entering the program after fourth grade, you will need to start them in Classical Composition: Fable Stage and/or First Form Latin instead of what might be in the package.
This series is for the parent who wants a good classical curriculum which is outlined and ready to use. Simply open the book and follow the instructions. You will be well on your way to a quality education for your young ones. ~ Donna
Student Questions and Teacher Key/Test books were created by Memoria Press for additional assessment. These can be used to flesh out review and assessment if using the books as a junior high course. While there was previously one "Questions, Reviews, Tests" book for each
We occasionally get requests for courses that will prepare students for careers in medicine. Whether interested in being a nurse's aid, nurse, or doctor, this series of planners and books can lay a solid foundation for a medical future. The Basic Pre-Med is ½ credit, and Advanced Pre-Med is a full high school credit. Each is laid out into 180 daily lessons that take 30-45 minutes. Suggested labs are mentioned in the front of each book, but they aren't required and are not written into the schedule. The schedule is in a chart that also provides space for assignment due dates and recording grades. Also included in each planner are worksheets for each chapter, quizzes, tests, and an answer key. Science of Life: Biology is a ½ credit study that covers an introduction to science the first semester and life science in the second semester. The first semester of Basic Pre-Med is microbiology, and the second semester is life science. The books used in Advanced Pre-Med can be studied in the sequence presented or as independent units. Lay the foundation from a biblical worldview and help your students prepare for their future. ~ Donna
Accelerated curriculum guides are available from Memoria Press for families who wish to move at a faster pace than the Classical Core Curriculum pace.If you begin at the Accelerated Pace and find it too difficult, it is possible to transition to the Classical Core Curriculum.
Items listed in this section tend to be complete science programs with a teacher and student component, requiring few supplements besides science supplies.
Less than a whole program or unit, but with a mix of instructionalinformation and activities. Items here tend to focus on one science topic atseveral grades.
Grade 6 moves on to Second Form Latin, Famous Men of the Middle Ages, Classical Composition III, English Grammar Recitation III, and Geography II. Medieval literature selections include King Arthur, Robin Hood, Adam of the Road, and Door in the Wall. Science is the study of birds and medicine. However, if the student has not completed First Form Latin or Classical Composition I (both series should be completed in order), you should choose these courses instead. Story of the World Vol. 3 is suggested as summer reading.
