I wanted to thank Steps personally because switching over to Steps for my son has really changed our lives. I know that sounds over the top, but we have had a rough year with him. We have always homeschooled but this year chose a virtual academy because I was tired of spending a fortune on curriculum and still feeling unsatisfied. He started having major issues and we were on edge all the time. Earlier this year we pulled him and a friend had recommended Steps so we thought we would give it a try. HE LOVES IT!! We haven’t fought over school since we started and he even will talk about what he has read and thought about when we are just out and about. Thank you, thank you, thank you!  -  S.S.D.

History for Step 3 students, ages 9-10 who read fairly well, and older students still developing literacy.  

The tale of the longest-lived Western empire! A story of conquest and genius, creation and blood! For students ages 9-10 (and some older students), this a history course filled with creative exercises and thought-provoking questions. Rome, from its founding through 500 years as a Republic...until Julius Caesar changed the ancient world and remade Rome as a type of dictatorship.

This course is focused around the first Newberry Prize award-winning children's book, Van Loon's The Story of Mankind . Those sections of Van Loon's book that the student will need for study are included in the course.

The course specializes, as do all STEPS courses, in developing the students understandings and ability to think and form their own ideas and opinions. Additionally, as with all our history courses, this one is structured to increase the student's vocabulary and understanding of geography, as well as of history.

20 lessons plus tests and answer guides.  26-35 hours of study.

  • Early Rome
