History - Why Bother?

With so many subjects and topics to teach throughout the education of a child, it is necessary as homeschooling parents to be fastidious. So much time and attention is placed on the core subjects of math, reading, and writing that every other endeavor in the education of our children requires justification. Come hear why History is not just a nice subject to add “if you have the time.” History has become so much more than just knowledge of facts from the past so one can impress his friends with trivia. History curricula worthy of your time recognizes that the study of history is the study of the human experience. Kate Johnson, publisher of History Odyssey, explains how she made History one of her very favorite subjects to teach and how it became indispensable in the education of her children.
