History Odyssey brings to life the story of mankind through a comprehensive study of the literature, historical events, and geography of the time period. Each study guide is intended to lead the instructor and student through a year-long study of the Ancients, the Middle Ages, Early Modern, or Modern Times. They provide the framework and structure for using and organizing many of the best resources available for history and literature.
The study guides include easy-to-follow lessons that present history chronologically and include reading and writing assignments, map work, and activities. Each level of History Odyssey progresses gently, preparing the student for more sophisticated reading and writing.
History Odyssey study guides are written based on three principles:
- History is exciting when presented as a story.
- History is best studied through the reading of great books.
- History is best taught through a world view with an opportunity to learn about different cultures and how they interact, inﬂuence, and connect.
History Odyssey eliminates the guesswork by coordinating resources and lesson planning. Our goal is to make history one of your favorite subjects.
