Social Review

HISTORY

Social is a tricky subject since many of the historical programs present information that can be biased or inaccurate. Unfortunately, I do not feel there’s any great curriculum on history unless you are looking at religious text.

Story of the World

This program remains to be one of the most popular homeschool history program. It is in story format and is presented in a timeline spanning 4 textbooks. The curriculum is Christian; however, it does mention other historical events — the revelation of the Quran etc. The program also comes with an activity and mapping book. You can read more here.

I do not have experience with the following but they are popular options. Again, I believe they are Christian publishers.

The Biography of the Noble Prophet – 20 books in a case
