Earn High School Credits Together with Beautiful Feet

Mom gives Beautiful Feet homeschool curriculum a beautiful review. High school students earn one credit of history and literature at the same time.

I have four children that I have homeschooled. My oldest has been to private school - some in elementary, junior high and one year in senior high school. She really enjoyed Beautiful Feet. It is a literary curriculum that studies history from different time periods such as the Medieval, Ancient, U.S. and World History. She enjoyed it especially since it wasn't a regular textbook; the student gets to read all kinds of literature to study history.

There is a study guide to go along, mapping out what books to read and when; there are questions to answer, short papers to write, and a couple of videos to watch if you choose.

We have put the short papers into a notebook which makes a nice collection at the end of the year. Since this curriculum requires literature reading, students in high school can earn 1 credit for history and 1 credit for literature. This curriculum begins in the primary grades, although I have only used it for Junior and Senior high students.

Great way to hit two birds with one stone; study history and literature at the same time! Instead of reading a textbook for history, why not read and study great literature from the different time periods and earn two credits at the same time? Great review and time-saving tip! :)

early us history- great books, bad program
by: Michelle

We used Early American History this past year. I found the teacher's guide to be very unorganized. Often the page numbers in the teacher's guide did not match the pages in the reader books (the subject did not match the questions for that day). I also found many of the tasks to be busy work rather than truly beneficial for the kids learning. We eventually stopped the activities and just read the books and did our own activities. The teacher's guide also errored in that the books are not read in chronological order.

That said, we really, really enjoyed the reader books. They were fun, educational, and often my kids did not want to stop reading them. Even my 4 year old talks about the stories and characters. I would recommend the readers, but the program itself was lacking.
