Introduction
Welcome to the Grade School Multi-Subject Unit Study Program for 3rd through 6th grade students designed to simplify and streamline your home education experience. Through an integrated literature-based curriculum, your family receives clearly laid out directions for the parent(s), hands-on project-based activities for students, and a once-a-week touch-base LIVE class where discussion, sharing, and learning take place.

How it Works
Each full year is segmented into two parts occurring in the fall and spring incorporating History, Science, Language Arts, Art, and Religion to learn all subjects together in a unit that coordinates and dovetails into one harmonized year of learning.

Your Program Description
The Four-Year Sequence
The entire program spans a four-year sequence based on the four volumes of TAN Books’ History series, The Story of Civilization. The four years of study include...

Year One: Ancient History (Volume 1, Story of Civilization)
Available both as live, interactive and as recorded, independent-learning (Unlimited Access) courses this school year (2021/2022).

Year Two: Medieval History (Volume 2, Story of Civilization)
Available as recorded, independent-learning courses through Unlimited Access for this school year (2021/2022). Will be available again as live, interactive courses the following school year (2022/2023).

Year Three: The Making of the Modern World History (Volume 3, Story of Civilization)
Available as live, interactive courses this school year (2021/2022). Will be available as recorded, independent-learning courses after March 15, 2022 through Unlimited Access. Note: The Making of the Modern World is primarily a history of Europe, with details about US History interwoven as needed. See Year Four for a focus specifically on the history of the United States.

Year Four: The History of the United States (Volume 4, Story of Civilization)
Will be taught live the following school year (2022/2023). Will be available as a recorded, independent-learning course through Unlimited Access after March 15, 2023.

Coordination with the Middle and High School Programs
Coordinate Learning, Simplify Teaching
Your older students can also get both LIVE, interactive courses and/or recorded, independent-learning courses here at Homeschool Connections courses that cover the same historical era as this program, so your elementary through high school students can study the same four-year historical sequence together.

All Students, Same Subjects
Follow the resources provided here to make learning more concise, focused, and unified across all of your family’s learning experience. When you give your middle and high school students courses in the same areas of History, Literature, and Science, you create a full, multi-grade study of the same era in your homeschool. For choosing middle and high school courses, guidance is given for what courses “match” and what courses are available in both LIVE and recorded formats.

Your Learning and Course Formats
Your Year-Long, Two Semester Program
The year-long program is taught in two parts: Part One in the Fall Semester (12 weeks) Part Two in the Spring Semester (12 weeks). Sign your children up for both parts, to create a complete year of learning.

The “Flipped Classroom”
The Grade School Unit Study Program uses a “flipped classroom” approach in a four-day-week course of study: families watch teacher-created videos and work together on interactive lessons (guided materials and instruction). In addition to home learning, the once-a-week LIVE online class “becomes the place to work through problems, advance concepts, and engage in collaborative learning” (The Flipped Classroom, 
https://www.educationnext.org/the-flipped-classroom/).

Daily Activities
Families are provided with daily lessons, checklists, videos, and other resources and learning materials. Each week starts with a LIVE, twenty-five-minute online class meeting for parents and students together with the instructor.

Class Meetings
During each weekly class meeting, students discuss the past week’s readings, play games to reinforce the week’s learning, and have the opportunity to share project work and poetry recitation on camera.
