Humanities II Antiquity 2018-19

PLEASE NOTE: Our bookstore pages are as complete as we can make them at this time. As teachers plan classes for the year, additions or deletions may be made. Booklists will be finalized by the beginning of August, and registered families will be notified when that occurs. Most of these books are worth having on your shelves, so we do not recommend that you turn down any great deals if you see them! But if you want to be absolutely sure, you may prefer to wait until our August deadline before you purchase.

Required Books and Materials

KING’S MEADOW AMERICAN CULTURE CURRICULUM Part of a 4-year moral philosophy curriculum covering the major epochs of history.

Registered families may order this at a discounted price through our licensing agreement with King’s Meadow. Please email the Providence Prep Administrator to order your copy.

A Note About the Dorothy Mills Books: The hardbacks published by Dawn Chorus, which are listed on these same Amazon links, are nicer volumes, worthy of keeping on your shelves.

The World History Atlas is currently out of print, but there are plenty of used copies available at the link. The other three books listed below are published by Cottage Press. Registered families will receive an email regarding our group discounted order to be placed in August. BOOK OF CENTURIES – A blank timeline book for students to record the major events and people they encounter in their study of history, literature, science, art, and music.  (Students who already have a copy from previous years should continue to use it, as this is a cumulative endeavor.)  COTTAGE PRESS POETRY READER Volume III  PURCHASE AT LEAST ONE PER FAMILY (older students should have their own copy to follow along as poems are read aloud at home).
