These guides use various texts and whole literature to combine History, Bible, Logic, Grammar and Writing into a neatly packed 120 day schedule.
Why 120 days? We feel that in a course like this the student will stand a better chance at success if he is scheduled for a four day school week with the fifth day to be used for “catch up” or supplementary activities. It also provides extra time for reading, memory work, composition, or just simple “think time”. Specific writing assignments are designated for evaluation and are spaced in such a way as to allow valuable feedback. This will both encourage the student and help him to improve. The other great aspect of this course is that the writing assignments are frequently taken from work the student is doing in other areas such as literature and history. Also in the student manual are note-taking pages in English Composition, History and Bible study. These pages will help the student develop good organizational skills as well as the ability to get the most out of his reading. In addition, a supplementary reading list, poems, and space to plan daily work in other subjects make this a valuable learning and organizational tool.
