    Default Crash Course World History CURRICULUM!!

    Free, people! Updated often!

    Crash Course World History Curriculum


    Example: Student's section of Early Modern
    Example 2: Teacher's section of Early Modern

    I have typically used Crash Course to soften my student up for a history or science topic. It was never an assigned part of her studies, more like a fun yet fact-filled supplement (and I do the same thing with Horrible Histories). But lookeee!! they're putting a history curriculum out for free, it's broken down by era, it's tagged to different Crash Course World History episodes, *and* there's teacher and student PDFs to use.

    Ooooooooooh! I love it.
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at TheHomeschoolResourceRoom.com.

    We are currently discussing this on another board on FB. I was excited when I first saw it, but not as much now. I think it's a great resource, but it's not AP level. Not at all. I'm a bit disturbed that they are advertising it as such. I haven't looked at it in depth, but it looks like a good middle school level course. We did WH last year with my 9th grader, and while we initially started it as an AP class, we ended up switching for him to take the SAT2 for WH. Mistake on my part, as they emphasize different things, and he didn't do all that well on the exam (in the 50th percentile). I also discovered later that WH is one of the harder SAT2 exams. Anyway-my point is that we did a rigorous WH course, and this is no where near AP level. I am disappointed in that. But it's cool, and I may use it for my younger one next year, or parts of it in 9th grade, when we do APWH.

    I can't find where they advertise it as an AP course. Where did you see it?

    Hmm..Interesting. When it was first introduced (that day and for a day or so after-I stopped checking after that, as I don't need WH right now), it was labeled and advertised as AP. I follow them on FB, so it popped up in my feed immediately. The SEA groups started chatting about it right after it was released, and several of us did express some misgivings about the AP label. So I wonder if they have removed it? I don't think it's a bad course, at all, just not AP level, and really, not high school level (at least for me). It's a step in the right direction, though, and I'm very happy to see it.

    Maybe they took it off after comments about it.

    I'm thinking they did? Again, people (including me) got REALLY excited when we saw the *AP* on it. I am doing APUSH with my older one right now (per his request), and honestly, it would be nice not to have to recreate the wheel, and I could have used World for my younger DS. Personally, I am not overly fond of AP, especially now that there are so bloody many of them that schools are becoming much more selective in accepting them. But, my 15 year old insisted that he wanted to do it (he's also self-studying for Physics 1), so we'll give it a shot. Not sure we'll do it again, but it would have been nice to have a APWH curriculum to use.

    Those look awesome! I'm hoping they continue something like this in 4-5 year when Tech can use this!
