Publisher Description:

Euripides further developed the tragedy, instituting the deus ex machina, a prologue with a background, and greater realism. His heroes are less resolute and more psychological, fraught with internal conflict. Here is the revenge of Medea and Hecabe, and the exciting adventures of Heracles in the Underworld.

Category Description for Medea & Other Plays by Euripedes:

The Euripides plays are typically covered after a general introduction to the Greek plays since he is known for further development of the tragedy. For instance, the well-known literary device deus ex machina was developed by Euripides. In this course from Memoria Press, the revenge of Medea and Hecabe and the Underworld adventures of Heracles are read and studied with the continuing goal of expressing the Central One Idea. The exercises for each play take the reader through the stages toward that goal: preparation (Pre-Grammar), vocabulary and comprehension questions (Grammar), Socratic discussion questions (Logic) and student essays (Rhetoric). The Book (text of plays) includes Medea, Hecabe, Electra, and Heracles. The Student Book, covering the same plays, is a consumable worktext. The Teacher Guide has the same pages with answers provided plus quizzes for each play and a final exam as well as answers for these. Both books have some general instructional material and teaching notes for each play. The Set includes the Book, Student and Teacher books. The instructional DVDs are a separate purchase. Student - 100 pgs; Teacher 130 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

Category Description for Memoria Press Classical Curriculum:

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
