I loved this program, mainly because I handed it to my daughter and logged three credit hours. It was that easy!

Perhaps one of the most valuable features is the compilation of the best-of-the-best excerpts from original documents, poetry, stories and hymns from world history, compiled by Ray Notgrass. This supplemental book, In Their Words, includes excerpts from The Odyssey, Aesop’s Fables, Hippocratic Oath, Magna Carta, Christopher Columbus’ Journal, Martin Luther, Shakespeare, Donne, Milton, and Reagan’s “Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall!” speech, along with hymns from Cowper and Wesley, and O Sacred Head, Now Wounded and All Creatures of Our God and King by Francis of Assisi.

If you’re looking for a high school World History course, head over here and read the entire review.
