History & History Revealed

Teaching History and Using History Revealed

When it comes to history, there are a LOT of strongly held perspectives and quite a few places of controversy. So, how does the “average” homeschool parent (forgive me, you are certainly above average!) navigate through all of these without having to do a graduate degree in history??

For the past 35 years, I’ve been on my own journey of discovery in the area of history. It had always been a source of fascination (one of my favorite courses in college was African history!), but learning how to wisely and carefully guide others through the study of history—while avoiding the pitfalls—eventually became a full-time effort as a student, researcher, writer, and speaker—with the help and counsel of excellent academic historians.

If I can serve you by gently and humbly sharing the wisdom gained in these 3+ decades, it will a great joy.

Below you will find a few videos on History and History Revealed curriculum, along with various articles. It is my great hope that I will be able to add significantly to these collections, as there is SO much to say!

Teaching Tip 12 — Following the Rabbit Trail

Many years ago, we had a basset hound named Max (think sleepy dog, drooping eyes, and s-l-o-w motion). There were only two things that got Max’s attention and caused him to hustle—food and the scent of a rabbit. At that point, we lived in a somewhat rural area, with...
