All of CCHs options for history in the grammar stage are described and can be ordered here.
CCHs plan for studying history through literature in the dialectic stage is described and can be ordered here.
CCHs plan for studying applied history - law, economics, and politics - in the rhetoric stage is described and can be ordered here.
The older students here are those late grammar stage and dialectic stage students who have come to classical education later, wanting to learn the fascinating history of Western Civilization for the first time, but want to pass on the first and second grade readers offered in CCHs History of Western Civilization units for the grammar stage.
The homeschool parent does not need to be a historian or history teacher in order to successfully homeschool her children in the history of Wesern Civilization, but she does need to educate herself in the Biblical worldview as it applies to history. I have also included a few resources that make our job easier.
Using the Online Catalog
This online catalog is made possible through an association with Barnes&Noble.com. Clicking on the book title or book cover will take you to Barnes&Noble.coms information page about that book. You can look at its price, availability, any discounts currently taken for that title, reviews of the book, and other information, as well as order it if you decide to purchase the book. You can even place books in your shopping cart and save them for purchase at a later time. You can continue to add or delete books from your shopping cart until you are satisfied with your order and ready to purchase. Clicking on any link to Barnes&Noble.com will open a new window; to return to CCH, click on the Window menu on your browsers menu bar, and choose Classical Christian Homeschooling.
Locating Out of Print Books
If all else fails, and you cannot find a book you need, check it out from the library, or request it from your library through interlibrary loan. Once you have the book home, take it to a copy store and copy it. You can even have color copies done of key maps or photographs. Copy stores can now do nice bindings on your copy projects. The U.S. Copyright Law contains a fair use provision which allows an educator to make a single copy of out of print (not in print) works if needed for use in teaching (not for profit or publication). Then return the book to the library, and you have your own book to keep, usually for less than it would be from a collectors book shop.
