Easy Classical

Easy Classical is dedicated to excellence in classical education. They provide schedules, writing guides, copybooks, and geography curriculum.

Easy Classical schedules break down a full year curriculum into daily assignments. The schedules are structured around the recommendations of Susan Wise Bauerʼs book The Well-trained Mind: a Guide to Classical Education at Home.

As a member of the TOS Crew I was given the Early Modern History (Explorers to 1820) Schedule to view. I received the schedule, an instruction sheet, an icon sheet, 36 week-long, day by day schedules and other forms and helps that can be copied to use with your children. This schedule takes you through the Explorers, 13 Colonies, Colonial America, Road to Independence, and the Revolution. There is a list of History, Writing, and Geography Resources to be used along with a list of scheduled read aloud books, free time reading and picture books for the year. On the Easy Classical website they have a list of where the books can be purchased or to check libraries in your area for availability. I did a search for most of the books on the list and there are a few at our local library.

The schedule is very easy to read, there is a shopping list for the first week at the beginning and then at the end of each week schedule there is a shopping list at the bottom for the next week. There are icons to indicate when you should do an activity, and comprehension questions for each week. The reading is scheduled on Monday to introduce the topic for the week. This may be a little to much reading for one day, but could easily be changed. They tell you in the schedule directions that it is good to change things to fit your family.

Early Modern History (Explorers to 1820) Schedule teaches most subjects for K-6 grade and can be purchased from Easy Classical for $35.95 for the notebook version or $29.95 for the digital version. 

You can see what TOS Crew members thought of the Early Modern History Schedule at the Crew Blog.
