Language Lessons from Antiquity, Part 1, Level 3 is a Charlotte Mason inspired curriculum that teaches English and Ancient History simultaneously using living books as its base.
Part 1 covers the ancient history of Mesopotamia, Israel, Egypt and China from Creation to Kingdom (King Saul).
Two read aloud books are required to complete this course: The Bible (preferably KJV) and The Story of the Ancient World This latter book is available as an ebook from Nothing New Press (at this stage we are not stocking the hardcopy version). The Bible is taken as authoratative and is the main history text, with other read alouds used to expand on that history.
Other read aloud books are used and a detailed book list is included in the Teacher’s Manual. It is recommended that you have as many of these as possible to enrich your child’s learning of ancient history.
Level 3 is designed for students aged 11 to 13 and assumes a basic knowledge of grammar and fluent reading ability. Advanced grammar concepts are taught and a good level of independent learning is expected. Grammar concepts covered are:
Nouns: Proper, Common, Collective, Abstract, Concrete; Use in subjective and objective case; Possessive
Pronouns: Personal, Relative, Interrogative, Demonstrative, Indefinite; Possessive
