Generations Curriculum Review

#1

Have any of you used Generations curriculum? I’m specifically looking into the history curriculum. I had a member say they liked it, but I can’t find any reviews on it, so I’m just curious if anyone else out there has tried it.

Hi Erica,

Which grade are you looking at?

#3

I just looked into this as well… waiting to hear about it!
They have a podcast that looks interesting too. Their science book God Made Animals looks interesting as well, there wasn’t any samples on their website, so I emailed them and they sent me some! So far great customer service :slight_smile:

Erica-
Have you used Christian Cottage Schools curriculum at all? It’s unit study based, and located in Colorado. Just wondering since that’s where you’re from!

What grade were you looking at?

Hi, No I haven’t tried Christian Cottage Schools. I was looking at the history from Generations because it looked interesting, but I can’t find any reviews on it.

I’m looking at their 8th, 10th, and 11th grade history.

We are doing 8th grade this year but not the history as I am not american. I am Brit who is now Canadian lol but we did the grade 7 history and as far as I understand the layout is the same. There is a textbook reading, sometimes there was a reading from the book Trial and Triumph. The reading is followed by questions to make sure the text was understood, there is always a life application question which includes reading a few verses from the Bible and seeing how you can apply what was learned in history to your own life. It is suggested you do this with your student, the question doesn’t take long and helps start up some deep life and faith discussions. Each module has a short multiple choice quiz at the end and is followed by an essay which also goes towards their overall grade for the module. It was usually a research question so I gave my girls about 4 days to complete it. One and a half days to research, one and a half days to write, I would check it for spelling etc… And let them write a final draft before grading on the 4th day. When I got the textbooks I thought they would be boring and the children would balk but instead although we started late in the year they will finish history first because they loved it so much and were trying to do history every day instead of on the schedule. To me that’s a win! The other subjects were also interesting but that’s my History opinion.
