The Modern World & Geography lesson plans contain very few tests and quizzes; instead, they offer alternative ways to assess learning. Students can copy passages, draw descriptions, write about key events, list facts, write paraphrases, research reports, and give oral presentations. You will know that your student has internalized the information when he or she starts investigating other subjects and reading outside of school.

Travel to Prince Edward Island to visit Anne of Green Gables and fill out the Study Guide. Go with Brother Andrew even further along The Narrow Road.
