I received the British Middle Ages Classical Curriculum CD from Heritage History to review recently. This is an interesting resource. Like another review I completed recently, Heritage History believes in the use of living books to teach history. I am SO warming to this idea. The idea of reading an engaging book in order to learn history, instead of a boring dry textbook seems so natural. I may actually become a history lover yet.
The British Middle Ages CD covers the fifth to the seventeenth century and contains 55 books, over 60 maps, timelines, battle dictionaries, reading recommendations, geography terms, short biographies, historical era summaries and a ready-to-print Study Guide! Priced at $24.99, this CD is a great value.
The e-books are easily transferrable to a reading device like a kindle or a nook, used on a PC or laptop, OR you could actually print the e-books and put them in a binder or have them bound. The options are endless. Truly, this could be your history curriculum. There is some work involved for mom. Although there is a lesson plan, it still takes some effort to pull up the resources on the CD and decide how to use them. But everything is right there on the CD.
You can contact Heritage History for yourself here. Or, as always, read the reviews of my fellow crewmates here. There are several different reviews of different time periods offered in the Classical Curriculm CD series.
