View Full Version : Any recommended substitutes for Unit 4 R level history?
07-07-2008, 07:22 PM
I'm coming up empty-handed for Unit 4. My library does not have The Revolutionary Period, 1750-1783, Antebellum America: 1784-1850, Eighteenth Century Europe, or Robespierre and the French Revolution.
My library does have most of the other primary and alternate, Western Civilization (which I'll use if I have to), and in some cases, I'll use a dialectic selection.
Can anyone help me with substitutions for those titles above? Thanks!

The first three you've mentioned will be hard to find a substitute for. Your best bet is to look for any books that cover the topic for the week and fill in with Western Civilization when possible.
Any book about the French Revolution should be adequate.
I know that's not specific help...just tell your student to try his best and you can fill in the blanks during discussion time.

If you can't find great substitutes, I'd use the dialectic books. We just finished Year 2 Unit 4 Redesign at the D level. My oldest, 15yod, is going into 9th grade this next year and we've been trying to think out how much of Rhetoric to phase her in to. At first we were thinking only literature. As we went through the thinking process, we looked at the AQs and TQs in Year 2 Unit 4, at least at the end of the unit, and she and I were both amazed she could pretty much answer the questions based on what she had learned at the dialectic level. Certainly she couldn't go into the same depth as if she had the R books, but she has a solid background for doing R work just based on the D books she has read. So if you can't find anything better, I'd use the dialectic books, fill in gaps with the Western Civilization text, and then during discussion any depth that was missed you can fill in during lecture. It won't be perfect, but it will still be great!

I thought i had ordered the Colonial Period and probably did, but they don't have it. There doesn't seem to be a good alternative. Where can I find out what material is covered in the assignments from that book?
