Level: Form II (4th–6th grades)
Students in the Medieval & Early Modern History class will build beautiful keepsake Record of Time notebook binders and follow the narrative of history through The Story of the World, Volumes 2 & 3. They will read, narrate, and discuss passages from Story of the World and possibly other living history texts. In addition, students may work on developing outlining skills as they build their timeline of world history with illustrations and notes. There may be some at-home reading assignments given so that the students will be able to complete the time period under study by the end of the academic year.
