31 Days of Teaching Homeschool History

Welcome to my new series, 31 Days of Teaching History! I’m Stacey, and you can read a little more about my blog here. This post will serve as the index page for the 31 Days of Teaching History series so you can easily check back here to find all of the currently-published posts in order.

What I plan to cover in this series:

  • We’ll take a look at the way history is traditionally taught in schools, especially public schools. We’ll look at the way textbooks are made, how the standardized testing craze affects history curricula, etc.
  • Then we’ll look at a refreshingly different way to teach history. We’ll talk about “Living Books” vs. textbooks, and how to identify and find them.
  • We’ll cover how to plan and schedule a history curriculum using living books.
  • Then we’ll talk about adding in resources like timelines, maps, YouTube videos and other fun stuff.
  • We’ll also cover integrating literature and writing with history and alternatives to multiple choice history tests.

I hope you’ll join me for this series and feel inspired and equipped to teach this subject at home!
