I'm concerned about giving "The Complete Idiot's Guide to 20th Century History" to my newly Dialectic (6th grade) son. Besides the title, the numerous warnings in The Glance make me hesitate ... so I'm looking at the alternate book "Heritage of Freedom." However, I see that A Beka lists that as an 11th grade History textbook. Does anyone have experience with that book - could a strong 6th grade reader work with it?
The Bob Jones Heritage Studies 4 and Heritage Studies 5 seem to cover TOG Year 4 time periods. Does anyone have experience with those? I'm wondering if they would make a good substitute for the Dialectic "Core" - we'd still use the usual "In-Depth" recommendations.
