Can this course be done well with only having the men of Rome text? Are the student and/or teachers guides needed?

If you're referring to the Famous Men of Rome book, Kolbe has now combined the Famous Men of Greece with the Famous Men of Rome for a year long course in history available this fall. It's designated for 4th grade, but could be used in 5th.

The student guides are designed to provide a more thorough understanding of the material and the purpose of the teacher's guides is to make the teacher's life easier. Smile

Course plans are almost complete for the new 5th grade textbook on US history, Sea to Shining Sea, from the Catholic textbook Project and that would be another option.

I'm a big fan of History Option 2. What's the topical progression going to look like after these revisions?

Initially, there was: Biblical times, Egypt, Greece, Rome, then Old World and American going back through to the founding of the USA.
Then 7th and 8th goes back over history again from start to present with the Anne Carroll books.

I know Egypt wasn't updated with the new course plans some years ago. Will there be other changes to the track?

Thanks!
Joe

I just realized as I was signing up my fourth grader yesterday that FMoG and FMoR are now combined in one year. I have a rising 4th and 5th grader this year. We did not do them together for the 5th grader. I almost wish I had known last year and I could have put them in the same history together. Now I am not sure what to do with them. They have been doing history separately the whole time. I am not sure my younger one can do both books in one year. We have been following the old format-Egypt, Greece, Rome, Old World, and so on. Is it OK to continue that and not do the program as it is currently set up?
