Paths of Progress

Did you ever want to break free of traditional teaching approaches but worry that you wouldn't do it right?

Help is here. More than a curriculum, the Trail Guide to Learning series teaches you HOW to teach. Taken from the heart of Dr. Ruth Beechick's philosophy and personal mentoring, this curriculum not only guides you in what to teach, but how to make the most of these precious homeschooling years. Worry no more. The Trail Guide to Learning series.

Paths of Progress is the third step on the Trail Guide to Learning. To grow as a country, another group of leaders had to step forward during our history—scientists and inventors. Study those who used their talents and abilities to answer questions that provided better ways of living and working. The lives of these devoted individuals and their contributions will be examined throughout our history, into the Industrial Revolution and the beginning of the 20th century. Primary science focus involves Physical Science (such as energy, motion, and work) and the economic impact of each development. Some key figures studied include Ben Franklin, Samuel Morse, George Washington Carver, the Wright Brothers, and Thomas Edison. This full one-year course is targeted for grades 5-7, but the lessons can easily be adapted for 4th and 8th grades as well.

Pack your bags and prepare to travel through time and history with inventors and scientists as your guide!
