Samplings of other famous people profiled are: Elizabeth I, Sir Francis Drake, William Shakespeare, John Smith, Galileo, William Bradford, Blaise Pascal, Rembrandt, John Locke, and many others.

Category Description for Greenleaf Guides:

These homeschool history staples have been around for quite a few years now and remain popular as a flexible, "unit study"-like program that covers history chronologically and in-depth, using excellent supplemental resources. For most historical periods covered, there is a Famous Men book and a Greenleaf Guide. (For Old Testament and Ancient Egypt, readings are found in other sources, including the Bible and supplemental resources.) Famous Men books are reprinted from the original editions (1904) and include the original preface as well as a new preface. These volumes feature stories and black-and-white illustrations on the featured men. The content of Famous Men of Rome and Famous Men of Greece are very similar to the originals, while Famous Men of the Middle Ages includes new chapters by Rob Shearer.

The corresponding Greenleaf Guide holds reading assignments from Famous Men and the supplemental resources. vocabulary lists, pronunciation guides, comprehension questions for the Famous Men stories, a chronological overview of that period of history, a graphic timeline, key dates for the time period, suggested hands-on activities and more. Think of the guide as the lesson plans/teacher resources, and the Famous Men and study package books as the texts for each study. Emphasis is on people and hands-on activities as you study history chronologically in depth. Instead of breezing through all of world history in a year and getting only a smattering of information, use these guides and study packages to really learn about the time periods; with special emphasis on people and cultures. The studies are also Biblically-based and use Biblical standards to evaluate historical figures and events.

We have created complete and supplemental packages for each time period in the Greenleaf series. Items in the supplemental packages are specifically recommended in the Greenleaf Guides, so you will need to have the accompanying books to get the most out of each guide. Each study package has enough material to last a school year (or less if used daily. Please note that items are also available separately.

I've been waiting for years for Rob Shearer to write this. We have faithfully used his Egypt, Greece, Rome, Middle Ages, and Renaissance guides for twenty years, and I always wished he would add to the collection.

This is a great way to compliment Story of the World for the older child. Here they learn more about history through the context of individual people. "
