Easy Classical~ A Review

Hi, my name is Alyson, and I am an Eclectic Homeschool Mom. 

There I said it, I admit, I use whatever works at the time for us. 

There are times when I feel as if I am the only one in my local group that is not fully Classical focused.  While I fully agree with Classical instruction, I just don’t have the energy to keep up with it.  I do try to implement it whenever I can. 

History is important and fun to me.  I feel like it is one of those subjects that has the opportunity to do lots of projects, and include other subjects.  So when teaching history, I look for curriculum that includes all that. 
As soon as I received a digital copy of Early Modern History from Easy Classical, I began looking at it.  I love lesson plans, but I am not a planner.  So I loved it right away.  It tells you everything you need, and everything to do each day.  It is laid out it weekly lesson plans, that are extremely easy to read.  Each one has a shopping list of things you will need for the next week.  Each week has a comprehension quiz, and discussion points.  Each day is laid out as to what you need to do each day, Monday – Friday.

I did not actually implement this into our school days.  Just looked through it to see if I would use it.  I can say that as soon as we get to that point in our history, I am going to give it a try.  (If things continue to go as planned, that will be next November.)  One thing that I can for see is that I generally need more flexibility in my scheduling.  For my solution to that, I am planning on either checking off as we do things, in order.    

I would recommend looking it to Early Modern History, and Easy Classical for you curriculum.  They have samples of most of their curriculum on their website. 

Early Modern History is $29.95 for the digital version, and $35.95 for the notebook version.
