Reading List Abbreviations

Below is from the file I’m creating for Classical House of Learning History & Literature: Multi-Level Ancients.  I will upload the file itself when I’m done with it.

Reading Lists

Remember, you should only select some of these resources.  Involve your children in this process.  Go to the library.  Look through your shelves.  See the “Planning the Books” section at the beginning of this guide.  Books marked with an asterisk (*) are books for which I’ve written lessons.

Abbreviations

These are books that I’ve listed as options to use throughout the year.

  • SOTW1:  Story of the World, Volume 1: Ancient Times by Susan Wise Bauer  Note:  I have rearranged the chapters to group this guide into units about particular cultures or geographical areas.
  • SOTW1AB: The Story of the World Activity Book One: Ancient Times by Susan Wise Bauer  Note:  This book includes discussion questions, additional book lists, coloring pages, activity ideas, and maps.  It is an excellent resource.  You may only use some of the resources.  There is also a book of tests for The Story of the World that you can purchase separately.
  • UILEWH:  Usborne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia of World History by Jane Bingham  Note:  This title is out of print.  We own it and I know many other homeschoolers do as well.  Substitute a different encyclopedia if needed.
  • KFHE:  Kingfisher History Encyclopedia (red)  Note:  This title is out of print.  We own it and I know many other homeschoolers do as well.  Substitute a different encyclopedia if needed.  I have noticed that Kingfisher tends to reuse section titles in various editions.
  • HO1:  K12’s Human Odyssey Volume 1: Prehistory Through the Middle Ages by Cribb, Holdren, and Kree (buy used)  Note:  I have rearranged the chapters to group this guide into units about particular cultures or geographical areas.
  • SOSA:  The Story of Science: Aristotle Leads the Way by Joy Hakim
  • HOTAW:  History of the Ancient World by Susan Wise Bauer  Note: The order of this book doesn’t exactly match what the younger kids are doing, but I’m not sure it will work well to rearrange the chapters.
