We're currently working our way through this program and loving it.  The children (aged 12 and 16) work independently on most of their subjects, but we chose to do this together to tie in with this year's Great Books studies. As we started with The Epic of Gilgamesh, the Mesopotamian start to this unit worked perfectly.

This program has been designed for independent study, but we've found it to be ideal for collaborative learning, encouraging interesting discussions. All the hard work has been done, but there is plenty of scope for shaping it to your family's needs. If necessary the children can work on their own too, so I love the freedom this gives us.  Highly recommended.

For the student, aged 14-adult who already knows history and who wants to understand its value and use in today's world.

You've studied history, and know it well. (Especially if you've completed Step 4 History 1-9!) You know your ancients, your great civilizations and great religions and ideas. You understand the powerful forces that have worked to shape civilization, from politics and economics, to religion and philosophy and art.  Congratulations!

Now, what are you going to DO with that knowledge?

This bundle of two remarkable and creative courses will help perfect your understanding of where we came from and why we are the way we are. Then, you'll discover for yourself the greatest issues facing today's world...and how you can use your knowledge of history to help handle them! Knowledge is power!

The first course of the two leads you through a creative and highly structured review of history, comparing your own knowledge and understanding with that of America's greatest historians, Will and Arial Durant. (You will need to secure a copy of their book, The Lessons of History. ) What do you know about the meaning of history, and how does it compare with the Durant's? What can you still learn? How can you deepen your grasp and your own thinking regarding mankind's history and what it means to us today? This course will help take you there.

The second course walks you through an exploration of your world, today, right now. Discover what your civilizations strengths and weaknesses are. Find your own special way to make a difference while using what you've learned!
