Grade Eight completes a two-year cycle of studies begun in Grade Seven. In in this period of study a student will survey ancient civilizations to the modern age in world history and in American history early explorations to the modern day. Primary documents and original source material are used as much as possible. The goal of both history studies is to solidify understanding and give a sense of the great flow of events. Grade Eight also continues the exploration of great literature with Shakespeare’ Hamlet, English Literature for Young People, the poetry of Robert Frost and William Wordsworth, Picture Study and Composer Study.
We also include an optional review of basic grammar, for those who are first-time users of our curriculum. For science, we continue with the Apologia series by adding Exploring Creation with Physical Science. Grade Eight Resource CD comes with each Teaching Guide. It includes ebooks, nature journal template, year-long planner, maps for each history study, articles on Charlotte Mason ed.
