I was just reading through the Introduction to Y4 again and picked up on something I had overlooked before. On page 25 it says that you recommend waiting to start the multi-year books, used in Church History, if your students are first year Rhetoric students. Are you referring to titles like Modern Revivalism and Church History in Plain Language? How would you fit those in for a 9th grader, since they won't be returning to Y4 at this level?
I have already purchased these books, but would be willing to hold-off a bit longer if you think the content is better understood if one starts at the beginning of the text in Y1. Am I understanding your point or are you referring to something different.
