    World History For Us All



    Review from member Soulhammer
    Member Ranking - Neutral
    Very thorough (overwhelmingly so, perhaps because of site design problems) and explicitly secular. Little Soulhammer found it to be a little dry, however, and I found that the activities required sometimes substantial adaptation to work in our singleton, homeschool set-up. This curriculum was a lifesaver in terms of teaching pre-history, however. Although the curriculum is supposed to be geared to 6th-12th grade, I found it to be a bit beyond my year 6, who has very good reading comprehension skills. We abandoned it after a mere three weeks.

    Pros:

    • Free
    • Multimedia components available
    • Teaching/ activity guides available
    • Can be used as a standalone


    Cons:

    • Some curriculum components not complete
    • Website not completely user friendly
    • Probably more appropriate for 8th-12th grade, rather than the 6th-12th grade specified
    • Geared for public school or group settings, based on activity guides

    I'm not sure what you mean by "work study." If you are looking for a work program to qualify for HS credits - you will not find that for a homeschooler in Texas. If you are looking for just any...
