curriculum reviews

I’ve been looking at resources to supplement our homeschool history lessons, or some folks say homeschool social studies lessons. I want something that will engage my daughter because unlike me, she HATES history. How can she hate history when she has my genes?? 

I am considering  video lessons because she is a visual spatial learner. However, I don’t want online video lessons because I am on satellite and my daily Internet usage is limited. That means no You Tube for us. OUCH!

Whenever I come across something I think might be interesting, I always check to see if there are any curriculum reviews of the product. I want to know what other folks think are the advantages and disadvantages of using the product. While their review won’t be my only deciding factor, I usually always learn something more about the product beyond what the resource pages from the company tell me.

I want to see a good mix of curriculum reviews (positive and negative) and see reviews that are pretty current. The reason for wanting to see a good mix of reviews is because I know everyone is different and we all learn differently. Sometimes what someone else sees as a disadvantage, I see as an advantage. Obviously I want current curriculum reviews because hopefully, if there is a major problem with the curriculum, the company has read about or heard about it and spent time making improvements…positive changes.

I don’t believe there is one “perfect” curriculum available, or at least not one for me. I like to use a healthy mix of supplements with one good core curriculum.

             

Help me in my quest for a good social studies supplement. Leave a comment telling me about the history program you are currently using. What do you like and dislike about it? What ages is geared toward? How much does it cost? I can’t wait to hear from you. Thanks in advance!
