After deliberation, prayer, research, and waffling, I finally decided to test out Catholic Schoolhouse. It is a program similar to Classical Conversations, but designed specifically for Catholic families. It can be used in a co-op setting or at home. We will start out by using it at home, since there is not a co-op in our area (yet). I am going to create a series of posts outlining books for each year & subject. We are going to start with Year 2: Creation – 1500 AD & use it as our spine to supplement with living books.
I also have my eye on TAN Books’ forthcoming audio drama CD’s called “The Story of Civilization.” Pre-orders are now being taken for Volume 1: The Ancient World (From the Dawn of History to the Conversion of Constantine). I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to have a Catholic option for a “Story of the World” style program!
