I am going to be doing beyond next school year......

with my 2nd/3rd grade dd----then if all goes well we will continue with the Bigger. Will this be too repetitive for her? I am not sure about doing American History 2 years in a row!

Welcome to the HOD board Lynne! Beyond... covers early American History from 1565-1865, and Bigger...covers American history from the 1500's-1970's. We did Beyond... a year ago, and Bigger... this year, and we did not find it redundant. In fact, my ds enjoyed "knowing" some of the people we were studying in history in Bigger... from Beyond..., and history was still done in a new and fresh way. The history activities and the notebooking in Bigger... is just done in a more grown-up way for that age. Also, the Bible study is even more history-linked and has deeper discussions than in Beyond... Even the living books used for the history in Bigger... were more "grown-up". I did enjoy Beyond... very much, but I'm just trying to say that Bigger... took a more grown-up look at American history, that made it feel completely new, while at the same time, nicely familiar. Hope that makes sense!

In Christ,
Julie

Hi Lynne! (That's my middle name, by the way. :wink: ) We'll be doing Beyond next year, too. I think the approach to Am. Hist. is completely different in both programs. I think Bigger is a biographical approach to am. hist. and Beyond covers events and other aspects......so they're both am. hist. but covered differently. I've not done either one yet, so hopefully someone who has done one of them will pop in. :D

Thanks Julie! Yes, that makes perfect sense.
You know it seems that I only start having doubts after praying over it and getting the confirmation I need. Hmmm.
... :?

Thanks for the help and for once again confirming my decision! :D
Thank you too Melanie!
