Review and HUGE sale on history curriculum: Dave Raymond’s Modernity DVD set

I recently had the chance to review Dave Raymond’s Modernity, the newest history series available from Compass Classroom. This series is available on DVD, via Streaming, or by download. Modernity usually retails for $120, but through August 9 you can purchase it for 50% off – just $60! You can find info on the sale on Compass Classroom’s website here.

About this history series (from the creators):

In this exciting addition to his history series, Dave Raymond turns his attention to the period of Modernity and the maturity of Western civilization (covering world history from 1500 – present). Under Dave’s instruction, students will learn how to apply and refine a Christian worldview to major developments in philosophy, science, and government; personalities such as Newton, Bach, Napoleon, and Austen; and movements including the Enlightenment, Darwinism, Nationalism, and Victorianism.

Modernity is a one-year class that consists of:

  • 27 lessons (5 videos per lesson, 47 total hours)
  • 4 projects
  • Student Reader, 400p (PDF, EPUB and MOBI)
  • Teacher’s Guide with Scope & Sequence (PDF, ePub and mobi)
  • Weekly Exams
  • Year-long Portfolio

You can find a complete breakdown of hours spent per area to qualify for high school credit on the website.

Dave Raymond lives in rural Middle Tennessee with his wife and 6 children where he has taught the humanities for the past 12 years. He teaches the disciplines of history, literature, composition, and Latin through Quiller Tutorials and Foundations Christian Academy.

Contents:
  • Formats: DVD, Download, Streaming
  • Lessons: 27 (47 hours of material)
  • Additional Materials: Student Reader, Teacher’s Guide (PDF, EPUB, MOBI)
  • Credit: 1 HS
  • Age: 14+
  • Teacher: Dave Raymond

My Verdict:

My husband is a history guy, and I knew he would love going through this series with me. He is teaching a class for 7th & 8th graders as part of our homeschool co-op this year, and there are a number of areas that he will be able to incorporate into his lectures. We homeschool our rising 3rd & 5th graders, and look forward to using this series as part of their curriculum in the future. It is targeted at students ages 14 & up, but I think it would also be good for really advanced 7th/8th graders. Dave Raymond is a really engaging teacher, and the combination of his lecture style with the visual elements that the DVD/streaming mode allows makes Modernity way more interesting than any history class I remember sitting through. It’s such a great way for parents to provide a modern history education for their high school student while possibly re-learning many things themselves. Also, much of history, especially modern history, is often taught from an anti-Christian worldview. It’s nice to be able to approach these events from a specifically Christian perspective.

The lessons included are:

Part I

  1. Orientation
  2. The Great Stage: Introduction to the West
  3. Ideas Have Consequences: The Enlightenment
  4. The Sacred and the Secular: Empires, Missions, Pirates, and Rulers
  5. Royal Science: The Scientific Revolution
  6. The Creators: Pascal, Vermeer, Johnson, Bach
  7. The Devil Has No Stories: The French Revolution,
  8. I Am the Revolution: Napoleon
  9. Deus Ex Machina: The Industrial Revolution
  10. The Antiquary and the Muses: Scott, Austen, and the Romantic Poets
  11. No Vision Too Large: Wilberforce and Chalmers
  12. Culture=State: Nationalism
  13. Eminent Culture: Victorianism

Part II

  1. The West and the Rest: Victorian Missions
  2. The New Priesthood: Scientism and Darwinism
  3. The Square Inch War: Kuyper and Wilson
  4. The Pity of War: World War I
  5. Domesticity Versus Tyranny: Versailles, Dictators, and America’s Roaring Twenties
  6. Modern Art and the Death of Culture: Art and Architecture
  7. I’ll Take My Stand: The Thirties
  8. The Lost Generation: Literary Converts
  9. The Wrath of Man: World War II
  10. The Cross and Perseverance: World War II, Bonhoeffer, and Churchill
  11. Personal Peace and Affluence: The Fifties
  12. The Great Divorce: The Sixties
  13. The West Like the Rest: The Seventies and the End of Modernity
  14. The Triumph of the West: The Fall of Communism and Postmodernity

Here’s the trailer:

If you’d like to check out Modernity it is currently on sale for $60 for the regular DVD – half off the regular price of $120!

AMC Summer Movie Schedule – possibly at our AMC Foothills 12 movie theater?

AMC Theatres has announced its 2017 Summer Movie Camp lineup, available at AMC Classic theater locations. Since our Foothills Mall movie theater is now “AMC Foothills 12” they may be participating…but I haven’t been able to confirm that yet. Since Foothills is not titled as a “Classic” theater, they may not be participating in any summer movie promotions. This is going to take a little more detective work on my part.  Please contact the movie theater directly to be sure Foothills is participating before you head out with your kids next week! If not, the Knoxville AMC Classic Knoxville 16 at 200 North Peters Road will definitely be offering Summer Movie Camp, and you can see their schedule here.

As part of Summer Movie Camp, AMC theatres offer $4 admission, which includes a ticket and a Kidspack with popcorn, fountain drink and FrootiTooti fruit snacks.

The summer movie camp lineup features:

  • THE LORAX
  • TROLLS
  • THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS
  • HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
  • PUP STAR
  • SING
  • HOME
  • DESPICABLE ME
  • THE PEANUTS MOVIE

Biltmore summer deals: free admission for kids and a discount for Father’s Day

Photo courtesy of The Biltmore

The Biltmore is offering a summer special where kids 16 and younger are admitted to the estate for the day for free (with ticketed adult). This special runs May 26 through Labor Day, Sept. 4. Also, on Father’s Day, dads can get a ticket for just $25 with the purchase of another adult or youth ticket. You also save on tickets when you purchase them a week or more in advance. You can buy tickets in advance at biltmore.com, or by phone at 800-411-3812.

Have you ever taken kids to the Biltmore? There are lots of fun things to do in addition to the main house tour! Here are some ideas, courtesy of Piedmont Parent:

  • From the Kids Audio Tour of Biltmore House to the Biltmore Treasure Hunt, younger guests can see the Vanderbilts’ grand home from a different perspective designed to entertain. Kids of all ages will want to check out Antler Hill Barn and Farmyard, with blacksmithing and woodworking demos and friendly animals to cuddle.
  • See the new displays in Antler Hill Village. George Vanderbilt’s railway travels are highlighted in a 250-foot long model train display featuring landmarks from Vanderbilt’s international travels. A construction team with Applied Imagination handcrafts architectural elements using leaves, twigs and natural materials. Five model trains run along five track loops, passing by miniature versions of the Biltmore Rail Depot, the USS Vanderbilt Steamship, Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triomphe, London Bridge, and more. An intricate model of Biltmore House and other estate buildings created from thousands of Lego blocks will be on display at the Wine Shop in the Winery and Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate.
  • All ages will enjoy a stroll through Biltmore’s magnificent gardens, which erupt in bright colors each summer, with towering tropical foliage, flowers that attract both butterflies and hummingbirds, and the heady scent of the historic rose garden. Take a hike to the Bass Pond, and beyond that, a gentle waterfall.
  • Antler Hill Village & Winery comes alive on weekend evenings when Live After Five takes place. Live music on the Village Green features jazz and pop. A kids’ Grape Stomp is held nearby, and casual food choices are available for purchase.
  • Take a horseback ride. In addition to hikes and strolls, guests may ride horses along trails with views of Biltmore House. Some of the trails are the exact ones traveled by George and Edith Vanderbilt, and their daughter Cornelia, when they lived on the estate.

Thanks to Lelia for sharing, and to Piedmont Parent for the fun ideas!
