Fleshing Out The Good & the Beautiful History for High School

One question that is frequently asked in the Good & the Beautiful group for high school families is whether or not the history is meaty enough to count for a full credit.  The short answer is yes, it is.  Especially if you have a child that isn't planning to major in history or government.  If your student chooses to do all of the extra readings and writing assignments in the 10th-12th grade student explorer packet, it can be quite a bit!

Come back next August 10th to kick off our series - Five Days of Homeschooling Teens.  Read the whole series...

For our upper grades kiddos, though, we opted to let them choose some of the assignments from the student explorers and then flesh out topics further with some hands-on fun.  Sure...we could suck the joy of out life and make it all collegiate, but there's going to be plenty of that in just a few short years.  How many college professors let you color and play games?  (Actually, with all the societal changes, I have no idea if they do that now...but they didn't when I was there.)  Thanks to Write Bonnie Rose and her awesome resources, we are able to inject FUN into every unit!
