History Odyssey is an excellent choice for those wanting to use the Well-Trained Mind approach to history in the logic years I would also recommend it for anyone wanting a history program which encourages critical thinking and involves plenty of reading and writing as well as some independent researchWe found the Level 2 course to be comprehensive and thorough but never overwhelming It may not be the best choice for reluctant or struggling writers however due to the amount of writing required while kinesthetic learners may not enjoy it since it does not involve much in the way of hands-on learning Because it is academically rigorous I imagine it would be difficult to use with children significantly younger than the recommended age rangeHistory Odyssey is easy to use once you have all the recommended books History is covered chronologically by region The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia is the main spine and historical fiction (including plenty of Shakespeare) and other resources are integrated into the course Many maps are included as are some primary sources The lesson plans tie everything together They are well organized and clearly lay out exactly what the student is expected to do thus making it easy for the student to work independently Lesson scheduling can be difficult since there is considerable variation in the amount of time different lessons take to complete For families in isolated areas or with little access to good libraries the library research trips may be problematic (although access to the internet will help a lot) The course does assume prior experience with outlining since this was taught in the first volume of the series If your child is new to outlining be prepared to teach them Where all parents will have to put in time is in reading and evaluating their students' work There are no suggested answers so it is up to the parent and child to determine whether the summaries outlines biographies and other work are satisfactory

Really enjoyed the Ancients package, so we are looking forward to Middle Ages -- helps a disorganized classical homeschooler stay on track!

We did History Odyssey - Ancients (Level 1) this year and became quick fans. It uses such varied resources that interest is maintained, and the reading levels work so well with our home brew literature curriculum.

Will I need to purchase one copy of History Odyssey per student, or can a family share one copy?
User on Mar 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We share. We make copies for the maps and other worksheets and keep the originals for masters. We just put the book into a notebook so it stays clean and is easy to use.
Is this (History Odyssey Middle Ages Level 2) a bound book, or loose-leaf pages?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The material is loose-leaf pages and does not come with a binder, so you will have to purchase one. I purchased this rather than getting the download as I had previously purchased because I thought it came with a binder, but it did not.
