Coming Soon: Trail Guide to Learning Curriculum Review



This semester we have been using the Trail Guide to Learning curriculum from Geography Matters, which we were given the blessing to review.  I intended to get my review posted this month, but life happened.... Some things to smile about, others not so much: Easter week, ear infections, allergies, teething, General Conference...

However, I think this delay is actually a good thing because some of you may be looking into this curriculum and have questions that you would like me to answer.  If so, let me know in the comments and I will do my best to answer them.  In the meantime, I have enjoyed reading the following blogs from ladies who are using Trail Guide to Learning:





Happy General Conference Weekend!



Marcina and her husband, Aaron, have six children. This is her fourth year of homeschooling and she is grateful for the opportunity to teach her children at home. It continues to be both a challenge and a delight! In her spare moments she enjoys family history, gardening, reading, singing, listening to beautiful music, and learning new things.

I have been looking at this curriculum for 2 years and am very interested in your review. I'm a bit hesitant b/c of the price and then committed to their program for 3 years for Am History. I already am happy with LA, math, science, and other topics and am leary of boxed curriculums as I already have these subjects covered. However, I love the "unit study" approach that is holistic with history, geo, science, and my kids love hands on and FUN. I want more fun in our HS. COuld I do this with all our other curriculum choices? How much time in a day does it take? Did you supplement? Was it fun? Did you use their add ons - Bible, lapbooks? I need fun, easy to do, open and go, and not too time consuming so we can do our other things. Look forward to the review and may have more questions:) I can't decide if I want to do World History like WTM prescribes or American History and how that would set us on our History studies. I want our history to be FUN and engaging, not dry. History is the area I have really struggled - I have studied all the catalogs and this looks like the most engaging study of history out there. Let me know the good, the bad, and the ugly. What you love about it and what you would change and if you will continue with it. Thanks.
