I'm curious how history can be taught in various ways. I've never been much interested in learning about royalty, wars and 'major' significant events. I definitely see the purpose of being aware of these major names and events but I personally don't value researching these things in depth and in a seperated context. I also feel that much of what we learned in history class and read in books has been selected for various purposes and don't necessarily reflect the truth, or whole truth.
We're not homeschooling at the moment, but did so last year. We're possibly starting up again sometime this spring and i would like to make some sort of vision board for what we'd like to focus on. I'd love to hear about other families' take on history. perhaps i'm leaning towards integrating history as part of other subjects more than letting it be its own. i don't think my son would be receptive at all to traditional history lessons.
sorry i'm not bringing any more specifics here about what i'm looking for, i think i mostly just want to get a feel for the various ways i can bring history into homeschooling. any suggestions on books, philosophies, curricula etc are welcome. if we do manage to get our HS application approved and HS doesn't become illegal here next fall, we'd have to follow the swedish state curriculum so we'd obviously throw some dry facts into the mix as well.
