Next year, my 9th grade son will be taking a Geography and World Cultures class as an elective. Here is a more detailed description of what he’ll be learning for that class.
History education is always selective. Who’s stories do we choose to tell and why? My son will be a Freshman in Highschool next year, and he is going to study World History spanning from the first humans to the industrial revolution. Obviously, far more happened in that time that a student can learn in a single year. Here is what I’m planning to teach him.
The school year is almost over, and many people are preparing to order curriculum for next year. I wanted to take a moment to share my thoughts on the curriculum I used this year for my 6th grader. In citations where I’m planning to continue using the same curriculum next year, I’ll let you know.

If you want a secular literature based homeschool program that is ready to use without tons of planning, I highly recommend Build Your Library. If you are like me, and love planning, then I recommend building your own library.
I don’t have a textbook/workbook combo pack to review for my eighth graders history, because I created my own curriculum for him.
Now that we’re halfway through the school year, I’m giving reviews of the individual curriculum we have been using this year. Today, I’ll review Curiosity Chronicles History curriculum.
We’re now half way through the school year. Last week I gave an update on what curriculum changes I’ve made for my 8th grader, so today it’s time to talk about my 6th grader. Overall, things are going really well this year for both of my boys.
We’re now half way through the school year, so I figured it was time to give an update on what curriculums we’re using. We have made several curriculum changes, but the bigger overall update is super positive. In fact, homeschool is going so well with my 8th grade, we’ve decided to stick with homeschool for high school too. Eek, there will be more on that in future posts for sure.
