As the homeschool parent, teacher, or co-op class leader, you are the mentor, guiding children through their education. Mentors should read the History Guidebook before teaching Layers of Learning History. It will teach you the philosophy behind history education and behind the Layers of Learning approach. You will also know what supplies to gather, how to plan a year of history, a unit of history, and a day’s history lesson. You will also learn how to:
- Utilize the Library Lists to read the best books for your children from your library
- Teach multiple ages or abilities at once
- Use each of the sidebars
- Plan assessments for your students based on your individual learning path, not on a textbook author’s ideas of what is important
- Have confidence that you can plan the best education for your children
