    I enjoyed Hakim's earlier books used in TOG. We have just finished W24 with the closing of the Civil War. The primary resources I had for LG and UG did very little discussion on the battles, so I...

    Ad hominem doesn't in any way describe my comments. They're based on logic, not emotion, and are certainly well-founded, as well as documented: politically incorrect views are VERY difficult to...

    Pat's response reminds me of something I should have emphasized in my earlier response and didn't. It would be a tragic mistake to thing that the article is in any way trying to justify slavery. ...

    I had a very high level reading 2nd grader last year, also. I did many many books out of the UG level. Her writing, however, was certainly NOT high level (I'm referring to penmanship, not ability...

    We did the papercraft link viking ship posted by Kim. It may not look detailed, but it's a lot of very fine cutting and gluing! Not for little kids, and would be a treat for the older, anal,...

    I like Minimus for what it gives us now. It's a mix of conversation and grammar, but presented in a fun way, which is, I think, a plus for us now. I know from our yahoo group that many people...
