Memoria Press The Book of the Ancient Romans

Memoria Press Review

Hey neighbors!

Here is another one of our curriculum reviews through The Old Schoolhouse Crew!  Memoria Press made several different choices available and I chose: The Book of the Ancient Romans by Dorothy Mills.  M loves history, so this was a perfect fit for her.  We received the student textbook, student workbook and the teacher's guide for this course.  This Ancient Romans set is designed for grades 6-12.  This is a series written by Dorothy Mills in the 1920's for middle school students and now brought back into publication by Memoria Press.

Memoria Press Review

M participated in this class three days a week.  She has enjoyed learning more about ancient Rome.  She loves to throw out fun little facts she has learned, or she tries to stump her siblings by asking questions about her lesson that she hopes they don't know the answer to.  She thinks it is great when she can "teach" her older siblings something.  One of the first things covered in the book was the story of  Romulus and Remus which she had previously learned a little bit about through a DVD we had watched.  This was one of the stories she enjoyed sharing with her siblings.

She has been able to work through the book at her own pace.  She reads the assigned selection from the textbook for the day or week, and then completes lessons in the workbook.  Since she loves ancient history this was not a problem to encourage her to read her assignments.  The textbook is well written and held her attention.  When she has completed her assignment it is then easy for myself or one of her older sisters to check her work with the teacher's guide.

The workbook consists of Facts to Know, Vocabulary, Comprehension Questions and Activities.  The vocabulary sections included Latin Vocabulary words occasionally.  Reviews are spaced throughout the workbook, usually after 3-8 lessons are completed.  Some of the other activities include: drawing maps, working on a continuing timeline, extra research and some Bible reading.  We did not do many of the activities, other than the Bible reading and some extra research.  M is trying to graduate early, as in 2 years instead of the 3 she has left.   By cutting back a little on the extra activities she is able to complete more.  One more reason why I love homeschooling!

I would recommend Memoria Press to my homeschooling friends and others.  Visit their site for more information and to see samples of The Book of the Ancient Romans.  You will also find some other related curriculum listed at the bottom of the page.  They offer so much more than just the curriculum reviewed by the Crew.
