Outline 2013 – 2014 Lesson Plans

OUTLINE: 2013 – 2014 School Year

Greetings Fellow Homeschoolers!

Hope you had a fun and refreshing summer!  It’s almost time for school to begin.  Once again I will be posting history lesson plans.  This Fall I will be posting lessons on Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome.  This Spring I will be posting lessons on the framing of the new American Government (Post Revolutionary War) and the Westward Expansion.  The lessons will be similar in format to lessons you’ve already seen and used from this “U Read Thru History” site.  Each week readings will be suggested for different grade levels, discussion questions will be listed, and activities will be suggested per grade level.   To help homeschoolers get a head start on books they will need for this Fall, I’ll be posting the first three lessons this week.  Then I’ll take a few weeks break and resume posting lessons every week starting in early September.   I hope and pray these lessons will be a blessing to you and your family!

Following are two 17- week outlines for the coming school year:
