Read Cathy Duffy's Review:
Some parents learn better from audio-visual presentations than from a Teacher's Edition, so DeGree has developed Teaching the Socratic Discussion in History, a set of four DVDs with a binder that help parents/teachers and students learn this approach. On the first DVD, DeGree introduces the program and explains how it works. On the three other DVDs, you watch DeGree working with different homeschool families through the actual lessons.The binder includes instructions and forms so that you can actually teach your own students through a complete lesson on the Fall of the Roman Empire, including the composition assignments. The last two DVDs are great for families using either Ancient Civilizations of Medieval Civilzations, the two books from which the lessons are drawn. The last two DVDs are essential for parent/teachers who want to become certified Classical Historian Teacher's. (Requirements and instructions are in the binder.) For Full Review, Click Here.
