Inclusive History Takes More than a Month

What do your history studies actually produce in your children?   Knowledge?   Memorized facts?   If that’s it, you are missing out on the total power of history to enlighten, enliven, and elevate your child in mind and spirit.   This is both possible and necessary, especially if your history studies encompass stories that include the history of people who might not look like you.   Read more of my thoughts in my recent Heart of the Matter Online article here

    Excellent post; a month is never enough time, and it wasn’t meant to be, because Black History, Hispanic Heritage, etc., are integral parts of American history. I love the term “inclusive history” which sums it up succinctly.

    I’m glad I found you here, will visit as often as possible, and God bless you to you and your beautiful family. You are a glowing, godly example.

  2. Phyllis, I’m so glad you found me here, and I’m glad to see you writing again for the Examiner–great article on the end of the Encyclopedia Brittanica. We’ll have to catch up–I want to hear all about your son and his progress. What a blessing you are to the homeschool community!

Your two cents, please!
